Below, we’ve gone ahead and compiled answers to many of the most popular questions we receive every day. If there is anything else you’d like to know, be sure to give us a call!
How often should I visit the dentist?
This answer really depends on your dental needs, but for the average healthy patient with no ongoing dental issues, they should schedule at least one checkup and cleaning appointment every six months. Routine exams give our team the chance to catch and treat small problems as early as possible, and professional cleanings help remove plaque and tartar from those areas of your mouth you can’t reach at home.
Can I bring my child to Muse Dental Studio?
Yes! We’re more than happy to treat any growing smiles you might have at home, whether they’ve just gotten their teeth or are already starting to think about college. Our team will bend over backwards to ensure your child always has a comfortable visit while we provide the services they need to stay cavity-free year after year.
How should I replace my missing teeth?
This answer can differ from patient to patient depending on their particular needs, but in most cases, our first recommendation is usually dental implants. In short, they offer the most comprehensive, natural-looking, and long-lasting solution of any treatment, and we can use them to replace any number of teeth as well.

Can I straighten my teeth without getting traditional metal braces?
At Muse Dental Studio, yes you can! We offer both Invisalign and Fastbraces, two treatments that are designed to straighten crooked teeth and fix misaligned bites more quickly and discreetly than normal braces. It’s never been easier to get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted, and you can even save hundreds on Invisalign by redeeming our special offer here.
My jaw pops, clicks, and aches all the time. What should I do?
It sounds like you are dealing with a TMJ issue, which concerns the joints in your lower jaw that allow it to move freely in all directions. This can be caused by a number of different factors, and at Muse Dental Studio, we can provide the relief you need using a number of customized, noninvasive therapies. To figure out what is causing your pain and how we can stop it, contact us today.

Whether you’re experiencing a bad toothache or one of your teeth has been broken/knocked out, the next thing you should definitely do is call Muse Dental Studio. Our team will walk you through first-aid tips over the phone and schedule an appointment so we can see you right away. We’re often able to treat patients the same day that they call in, so don’t wait to reach out if you need immediate help!
How can a dentist treat sleep apnea?
Specially trained dentists like those at Muse Dental Studio can create custom-made oral appliances that are proven to help patients overcome both snoring and sleep apnea. They fit over the teeth and slightly shift the lower jaw forward, which helps the airway stay open and clear throughout the night. If you’re tired of always being tired or losing sleep due to your partner’s snoring, give us a call today to get help.
