Providing Answers To Our Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Carol Moreno and Dr. Roberto Moreno are here to help you fully understand our wide variety of great dental services at Gentle Family Dentists. Since many patients initially have the same questions, we thought we’d share some of these with you before your first visit.

If you have any questions of your own that aren’t answered here or throughout the rest of our site, please call our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA dentist office at 563-316-6055 or contact us through our online form!

Q: Do I Really Need Dental Implants Or Can I Just Wear Dentures?

Dentures will certainly improve your oral health and appearance. However, some patients are nervous that their dentures may slip out of place at the wrong time, which can happen. Dental implants will never shift around, provide a dependably strong bite, and last for ages with the proper maintenance. We also offer a combination of both treatments with implant-retained and implant-supported dentures!

Q: I’m Afraid Of The Dentist. How Can I Be Calm During My Treatments?

At Gentle Family Dentists, we offer two forms of relaxation dentistry, both of which allow you to remain awake yet calm and pain-free. It’s helpful for you to be able to communicate with us during treatment for a variety of reasons. Our relaxation dentistry options are completely safe. They include free laughing gas and oral conscious relaxation, which puts you just on the brink of sleep so you feel no dental anxiety at all.

Q: What Kind Of Toothbrush Should I Use?

Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will recommend the best toothbrush for you depending on your mouth’s condition. Typically, the best option for most patients is a brush with soft bristles. Although it may seem like “heavy-duty” bristles would be the most effective, they can actually cause damage to your teeth and gums. During your visit, you’ll be provided with the best brush for you and will be informed of the most beneficial brushing techniques.
