Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to see the dentist twice a year?
Our mouths are constantly changing depending on what we eat and drink, our habits and our age. Seeing a dentist regularly is the best way to catch a potential problem before it becomes a big deal. Not to alarm you, but lots of dental conditions don’t necessarily have obvious symptoms that you can rely on to spot something early. Dentists have the expertise and advanced tools to properly examine your oral health in a way that patients simply can’t do for themselves.
Not everyone needs to see the dentist every six months: some patients need to see us more often. Depending on your oral health situation, the dentist will recommend the frequency at which you need to visit us. Some patients see us every three or four months, especially if they have gum disease. If the dentist asks you to come in more frequently than you did in the past, please know that this advice is given with the idea of keeping you healthier in the long run.
Your regular visits are your best chance for keeping your teeth strong, clean and white and your breath fresh. Hygienists can remove stains that regular brushing and flossing and in-home whitening treatments can’t! Plus, we’re always happy to give you refresher training on the best techniques for your at-home oral hygiene routine.
Remind me, how often do I need to brush and floss?
You should be brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Most people brush in the morning when they wake up and brush and floss at night before bed. If you want to brush after lunch too, we highly approve. When you brush your teeth it should be for a full two minutes. Make sure you get the back and front sides of your upper and lower teeth and their biting surfaces. When using floss, ensure to gently take the floss just below the gum line and curve the floss around each tooth front and back. If you’d like the dentist or hygienist to demonstrate proper brushing and flossing technique, please just ask during your visit!
I’ve heard I don’t really need to floss. Is that true?
Don’t believe everything your hear in the news. It’s true that more studies are needed to solidify the connection between flossing and various effects on your oral health. But that doesn’t mean flossing is ineffective, it just means we need to know more. To us, the idea of not ever cleaning plaque and food out from between your teeth is scary, not to mention gross! Why would you want all that nasty stuff hiding away somewhere in your mouth, feeding bacteria and causing bad breath? You still need to floss every day!
