Oral Health FAQs
Whether you have general dental questions or current concerns, we can help. Frequently asked questions many patients have about their oral health include:
When should I replace my toothbrush?
You should replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. This is because bacteria can accumulate on the brush, which contributes to problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, your bristles can become worn down over time. Keeping the bristles in shape ensures that your toothbrush is doing its job.
How often should I visit the dentist?
We will recommend that patients visit the dentist every six months. These routine visits are important to maintaining your oral health. Our hygienists can provide a deep clean to remove calculus from the teeth gums at regular visits. We can also work with you to create a regular schedule if you require visits on a more frequent basis.
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you have a sudden dental emergency, please contact our dental office for prompt care. We offer emergency dental care to prevent any further dental problems that can damage the teeth and gums. Some of the most common emergencies we treat include toothaches, broken restorations, and lost permanent teeth.
How can I replace my missing teeth?
There are a variety of options for patients with missing teeth. We offer dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures for patients missing one or more permanent teeth. Implants are titanium screws that are inserted into the tissue of the jaw bone. Once they fuse with the jaw bone, they become a permanent part of the mouth.
We will recommend implants to secure bridges and dentures. Dental bridges can restore multiple consecutive missing teeth, while dentures can replace arches of teeth.
