How often should I go to the dentist?
You should be visiting the dentist twice a year at least. Patients dealing with more serious issues such as infection, jawbone deterioration, or gum disease may need to attend appointments more frequently.
What is the importance of a dental check-up?
A dental check-up is important for multiple reasons. The plaque and tartar that has built up on your smile will be removed, your breath will be freshened, and stains can be removed. Good oral health is essential in maintaining good general health.
What occurs during a dental check-up and cleaning?
Dental check-ups and cleanings are very often combined into a single session. The check-up entails a comprehensive physical examination and x-rays of your oral cavity. During the cleaning, debris and plaque are removed from your teeth, they’re brushed and flossed, and then fluoride is applied to prevent cavities.
Why do teeth cleanings have to be done twice a year?
Two times a year is a good basis; some people won’t experience many dental issues and will only require this amount of care. Others will need to visit more frequently. So, it depends on your individual case, but two times a year is a good place to begin.
What exactly is orthodontics?
Orothodontists are dental experts who focus on the realignment of smiles. Identifying and addressing issues with teeth, bite patterns, and jaw position are just a few things that these professionals help patients with.
Can braces cause gum recession?
Braces do not cause gum recession, but they can increase the likelihood of it happening later – specifically traditional metal braces compared to clear aligners. With that said, gum recession usually arises due to poor dental hygiene, infections, and other related problems.
Can I get veneers if I have gum disease?
Unfortunately, no. Gum disease leads to swollen or irritated gums, and sensitive or loose teeth, which poses an issue for the application of veneers. You need to have a sturdy dental foundation for the veneers to be applied.
What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
Get yourself to a nearby dental practice as quickly as possible – or, if you’re unable, visit a hospital emergency room. In the meantime, try to control any bleeding with gauze, and if your tooth has fallen out or broken, take the pieces with you. Make sure you share all the details with the dentist when they see you.
