Frequently Asked Questions

Regular dental checkups are necessary because they allow you to spot dental conditions early when treatment is cheaper and affordable. They also prevent a minor condition from becoming serious. Furthermore, some dental conditions do not exhibit any symptoms until later hence the need to see a dentist regularly.


Your teeth may feel fine but it’s still important to see the dentist from time to time because problems can exist without you knowing. Today’s dentists offer many treatment choices that can help you improve and maintain a healthy smile through proper oral care.

  • Always remember to brush your teeth at least two times a day and floss at least once!
  • Make sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride and ask your dentist if you need a fluoride rinse. This will help prevent cavities.
  • Avoid foods that contain a significant amount of sugar (sugar increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth, causing more plaque and possibly cavities) and avoid tobacco (this can stain your teeth, cause gum disease and lead to oral cancer).
  • Don’t be afraid to brush your tongue! By brushing your tongue, you will remove food particles and reduce the amount of plaque-causing bacteria. Tongue brushing also helps keep your breath fresh.
  • Be sure to schedule a routine check-up. It is recommended that you visit the dentist every six months.
