  • Q: Do I Need CPAP For My Sleep Apnea?

    Sleep apnea is a condition that will affect millions of Americans. The most common way to treat sleep apnea is with a CPAP, but patients often find the CPAP uncomfortable and refuse to wear it. For many forms of sleep apnea and snoring, we’re able to treat the patient with a comfortable oral appliance. The appliance pushes the lower jaw forward to make sure the airway stays open during sleep. The appliance is small, easy to use, and does not disrupt you sleep or your bed partner’s sleep.

  • Q: Q: Do you offer emergency care?

    Absolutely. When you have a dental emergency, call our office at once at 248-697-2487. We’ll make every effort to see you the same day. If your emergency happens outside office hours, call anyway; your call will be directed to Dr. Ross who can determine whether you need to be seen immediately. In any dental emergency, count on Family, Cosmetic, & Laser Dentistry in Novi, MI to provide prompt and effective pain relief and treatment.

  • Q: How can you repair a cracked or chipped tooth?

    Depending on the severity of your damaged tooth, we might recommend a dental veneer. More than likely, we would recommend a full dental crown. This will allow us to restore full function and beauty of your tooth while also protecting your tooth from future infection.

  • Q: Can You Correct Flaws In My Smile?

    Absolutely! Dr. James Ross is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and has been recognized and honored for his expertise. When it comes to smile flaws, Dr. Ross frequently places dental veneers, which are extremely thin and very durable shells that are affixed to the teeth to conceal chips, cracks, deep stains, irregularities, and even small gaps between teeth.

  • Q: Why should I go to a dentist for filler treatments?

    Many spas simply administer filler treatments without any anesthetic. At our practice, we will use topical anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing while you’re improving the look of your skin. And we can combine filler treatments with dental cleanings and exams for your convenience!

  • Q: What are the advantages of in-office teeth whitening from my dentist

    Faster, more effective, safer. Dr. Ross will use a potent whitening gel that will whiten your teeth in a fraction of the time of take-home whitening kits. He’ll also protect your gums and lips with a light-cured barrier so the whitening gel stays exactly where it’s supposed to – on your teeth.

  • Q: Why should I choose clear braces over traditional metal braces

    Clear braces like Invisalign and ClearCorrect are often just as effective as traditional wire braces but without all the metal. They are more comfortable, discreet, removable, and do not require adjustment appointments.

  • Q: What’s the difference between dental implants and dentures

    Dental implants are a prosthetic restorative dentistry option that replaces your missing teeth, including the root. In comparison, traditional dentures restore function by providing a new set of teeth that rest on your gums; they do not replace tooth roots and are held in place by adhesive.
