Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a professional cleaning?

We recommend scheduling a professional teeth cleaning every six months, or twice a year. This will help prevent any plaque or bacteria from building up and keep your teeth healthy and happy.

However, if you’ve had any gum problems, cleanings should be performed every few months or as suggested by your dentist.

How often should I update my dental X-rays?

It’s important for patients to update their X-rays at least once a year, depending on individual circumstances. This will allow us to review your oral health and determine if signs of gum or bone infections are present. Updating your X-rays annually can prevent root substantial tooth and bone loss, as well as root canal treatment.

My teeth are crooked and crowded. Is there a faster way than braces to make them more attractive?

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, Dr. Henninger can transform your smile with several cosmetic services, such as dental crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and more. These solutions are designed to fix a number of dental imperfections and seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth.

During your free consultation, Dr. Henninger will examine your oral health and smile to determine the best solution for you. Give us a call at (760) 940-2273 to get started.

If I’m missing a tooth, do I really need to replace it?

It’s crucial to replace a missing tooth to restore its function and prevent oral health complications. The affected area can cause adjacent or parallel teeth to slant, shift or over-erupt. If untreated, it can result in bite problems, periodontal disease or tooth decay.

Fortunately, Dr. Henninger offers numerous dental implant solutions to replace missing or damaged teeth. They’re custom-fit to match the look and feel of your natural teeth, while promoting healthy jaw bone growth.

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, the entire dental implant process is completely safe. In fact, dental implants have a 98 percent success rate and are the only restorative treatment that stimulates healthy jaw bone growth.

Can dental implants be removed?

Typically, dental implants can be safely removed in cases of implant failure, and if the implant hasn’t been fully integrated with the bone. If this occurs, implant removal may cause severe bone loss and dental trauma.

Fortunately, our North County dentists provide several restoration options and supplemental procedures to get you back on track.

I recently had a tooth implant at North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. Dr Henninger was amazing. Seriously,... every step of the procedure was done perfectly. I have had three previous implants by other dentists, but none went a smooth and pain free as this one. I am very pleased.read more

I was told by another dentist I would probably need a root canal and/or a crown; so I went back to Dr. Henninger, once... I switched insurance companies, and he said I did not need either of those two expensive and invasive procedures. This was the second time I caught him being thoroughly honest and acting with the utmost integrity about me not needing expensive procedures. He’s very thorough, takes a lot time with patients and knows his dentistry extremely well.read more

Dr Huenergardt is probably the best dentist in No. County. I know he has MY best interests at heart - wouldn't go... anywhere else. The office staff is always so sweet. Seriously. For someone who needs a lot of dental work, I know what I'm talking about!read more
