What Should I Look For in a Family Dentist?
A family dental practice will offer services for every member of your family. When selecting a practice, it is important to choose one with an experienced and committed team of dental professionals who integrate advanced technology to improve comfort and results for people of all ages.
Dental needs are different at every stage of life. Look for a family dental practice that honors this fact and offers services to protect and enhance the smiles of every person in your home.
How Often Should I Have a Professional Teeth Cleaning and Examination?
The American Dental Association recommends professional teeth cleanings and examinations every six months. These visits are covered by nearly all dental insurance plans and may include both hands-on evaluations and diagnostic tools, such as digital x-rays, to detect issues that cannot be seen.
Why Is It Important to Go to the Dentist Regularly?
Routine dental visits are preventative. They allow for thoroughly cleaning all tooth surfaces – including beneath the gum line – and are essential for optimal oral health.
Issues such as tooth decay, infection, and gum disease may be slow to progress. Early warning signs can be detected during routine visits, enabling swift treatment before more significant problems are present. Biannual cleanings also help to keep teeth bright and brilliant through stain removal and enamel polishing.
What Can I Do to Keep My Teeth Healthy Between Dental Visits?
Daily oral care is the best way to keep your teeth healthy between dental visits. This includes:
- Brushing Your Teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing Before You Brush. Studies have shown that flossing before you brush removes more debris and plaque from in between the teeth.
- Eating Wisely. Avoid biting hard candy, ice, and non-food items such as pens. These can chip, crack, or break the teeth. Drink dark-colored beverages through a straw to reduce the risks of staining. Decrease your intake of simple carbs, starchy food, and anything with added sugar to help reduce risks for decay and infection
How Often Should I Brush and Floss My Teeth?
It is necessary to brush your teeth at least twice a day. It is optimal to brush after every meal and snack. Adding a brush when you wake up and before you go to bed is also a good idea. Brush for at least two minutes each time and pay close attention to biting surfaces to help ensure the most effective clean. Flossing can be done at any time but may prove most effective when performed before your first and last brushes of the day. Be sure to use a clean section of floss in between each tooth to maximize particulate removal.
What if I Have Dental Anxiety?
Dental anxiety is common. Several options, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation, can be used to help address discomfort. Dental sedation is safe and effective, and dosages can be adjusted to address any level of nervousness or discomfort. If you struggle with dental anxiety, we would be happy to discuss your sedation options during your next visit.
