Q: Why is visiting the dentist so important?

A:

Visiting the dentist on a regular, monthly basis will not only help keep your teeth and oral health intact. It will also help keep the rest of your body healthy.

Dental care is important because it:

  • Fights teeth decay
  • Helps to prevent miscellaneous periodontal (gum) diseases, which eventually can lead to tooth loss
  • Prevents bad breath. So besides brushing and flossing, seeing the dentist regularly will help eliminate the bacteria that causes a bad smell
  • Awards you with a snow-white smile and a new breath of confidence!
  • Helps keep teeth shiny by preventing them being stained by food, drinks, and cigarettes
  • Makes your teeth stronger which allows you to eat any food you want, at any age!

Q: My teeth feel fine; do I still need to see a dentist?

A:

You may feel fine and think that your oral health is at no risk. But the thing is, that only a professional dentist can detect dental problems on early stages. This might happen only during a regular dental checkup. Caries, food staining, gums problems and teeth weakening are just a few such issues that can go unnoticed for quite a while. Also, you need to take advantage of all the modern dental medicine to fix any issues you did not fix earlier (like broken, chipped teeth etc...).


Q: How can I take care of my teeth in between dental checkups?

A:

Visiting the dentist on a regular, monthly basis will not only help keep your teeth and oral health intact. It will also help keep the rest of your body healthy.

  • Do not forget to brush your teeth, at least, two times a day (5 minutes each time). Floss at least once a day!
  • Use only a fluoride containing toothpaste. Ask your dentist if you also might need a fluoride rinse. This will prevent any cavities in the future!
  • Avoid sugary drinks, foods and cigarettes as much as possible. These harm the overall immunity of your mouth and stain your teeth badly.
  • When brushing teeth, brush your tongue as well! By doing so you will remove food particles and reduce a number of mouth bacteria.
  • Tongue brushing will make your breath much fresher!
  • Be sure to schedule your regular, routine check-ups. It is recommended to check your teeth at least twice a year or even more often.

Q: At what age should I start taking my child to see the dentist?

A:

We recommend you start taking kids as young as 5 years old to a regular dental healthcare checkups.


Q: When should I change my toothbrush?
