How often should I visit Advanced Dental?

Drs. Torbenson and Neumann recommend that you visit our dental office at least once every six months for a teeth cleaning. This appointment includes a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays. Fluoride is a mineral that helps protect your teeth against decay by strengthening the enamel.

What if I have a toothache?

If you have a toothache, root canal treatment may be needed. If the dental pulp is infected or diseased, this causes pain to the tooth and the surrounding tissues. Our dentists will make an access hole in the tooth, through which the infected pulp, bacteria, and debris are removed. Once your tooth is thoroughly cleaned, Drs. Torbenson and Neumann will seal it with a sealer paste.

What if I have a dental emergency?

Our dentists in Mankato, Minnesota, are proud to treat dental emergencies, even after hours. It is important to have our dentists examine and treat dental emergencies as soon as possible. If dental emergencies are ignored, permanent damage may occur.

What options are available if I am missing one or more permanent teeth?

At our office, we offer dental bridges and dental bridges for those who are missing one or more permanent teeth. A dental bridge is made up of dental crowns and a replacement tooth. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in your jaw and the dental restoration is attached to the top of the post.
