Frequently Asked Questions
About General Dentistry
Cavities are caused when bacteria in your mouth begin to break down and soften your tooth enamel. This is usually because of food that is left in your teeth due to lack of proper brushing/flossing.
We highly recommend brushing once in the morning and once before you go to bed!
Dental sealants are placed in the dips of your teeth that might be hard to reach while you are brushing, in an effort to prevent tooth decay in these areas. While some maintenance is required, they can last for many years!
Most brands of toothpaste are acceptable. What is really important is how often you use it! Sometimes, depending on your mouth and health, your dentist may have a specific recommendation for you. If you’ve had cosmetic work done, there are a few you’d want to steer clear of. Ask for more info at your next check-up!
Making sure to brush your teeth twice a day and get your teeth cleaned every six months is the best way to make sure your teeth stay white and shiny!
Gum disease happens when the biofilm on your teeth is not thoroughly disrupted and starts to cause inflammation in your gum tissue. If you think you might have gum disease, give us a call to discuss treatment options!
