About Visiting Your Local Dentist

01. How to prepare for my appointment?
When preparing for your next dental visit, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, make sure that you arrive early so that you have enough time to relax and complete any necessary paperwork. After completing the paperwork, explain your dental problems to your dentist. This will help us provide you with a diagnosis and an optimal treatment plan. Lastly, be open about your dental anxieties. This is so we can help ease you into any procedures needed and to ensure that you’re comfortable during treatment.
02. Why should I see a dentist on a regular basis?
Seeing your dentist on a regular basis is essential because they help in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. During these visits, we will check your overall oral health for any problems along with cleaning and polishing your teeth - removing any plaque and tartar buildup.
03. Why are regular dental assessments so important?
Regular dental assessments or checkups are important because they help detect any dental issues that can potentially become a problem. We will detect any warning signs of gum disease, tooth decay, or even oral cancer.
04. How do I know if my teeth are healthy?
There are different telltale signs that your teeth are healthy. These signs include: no bad breath, a healthy looking tongue, strong teeth that are not excessively sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Your dentist will look at these as part of their assessment.
05. Is a painful cavity a dental emergency?
Yes! Especially if it causes discomfort or compromises your daily life. But if cavities are treated in time, they do not have to become dental emergencies.

Dental Treatment

01. Can gum disease be treated successfully?
Gum diseases (gingivitis and periodontitis) can both be treated successfully. The treatment involves daily brushing, flossing, and regular visit to your dentist to make sure that your gums are getting the proper treatment.
02. Can dentists fix really bad teeth?

Oral Hygiene

01. How to prepare for my appointment?
When preparing for your next dental visit, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, make sure that you arrive early so that you have enough time to relax and complete any necessary paperwork. After completing the paperwork, explain your dental problems to your dentist. This will help us provide you with a diagnosis and an optimal treatment plan. Lastly, be open about your dental anxieties. This is so we can help ease you into any procedures needed and to ensure that you’re comfortable during treatment.
02. Why is it important to floss my teeth?
Cleaning between your teeth removes plaque that can lead to cavities and gum disease. Flossing your teeth allows you to reach areas where your toothbrush can’t reach.
03. How can I improve my oral hygiene?
To improve your oral hygiene, make sure that you brush and floss your teeth regularly. Technique is also important, your dentist will help show you this. Regular visits are also important to detect any warning signs of cavities, gum disease and other dental problems.
04. Does smoking make the teeth loose?
Smoking makes it hard for your body to fight off infection. This makes it hard to fight off gum infections. Once you have gum infections, smoking makes it also hard to treat gum disease. Untreated gum disease can lead to bone loss which leads to loosening of teeth.
05. What causes teeth grinding?
Teeth grinding is mostly caused by stress and anxiety. It often occurs when sleeping and is more likely caused by missing or crooked teeth, or an abnormal bite. It can also be caused by a sleep disorder, like sleep apnea.
06. What are early signs of dental issues?
Some signs of dental problems include: toothaches, severe sensitivity to hot and cold temperature, bleeding or sore gums, bad breath, discoloured teeth, dry mouth, or cracked and broken teeth. If you are unsure, give us a call!
