Q: How many times a day should I brush my teeth?
A: Most dental professionals suggest that you brush your teeth at least twice daily. Brushing after every meal and flossing once a day is a good way to maintain your dental health.
Q: When should a child have his/her first dental appointment?
A: A child should visit the dentist for the first time no later than their third birthday. Many dentists recommend that children visit the dentist once their first tooth comes in.
Q: Who needs to have their wisdom teeth removed?
A: Anyone who is in danger of developing impacted wisdom teeth should have them removed to prevent damage to adjacent molars or cause other oral problems.
Q: Who needs dentures?
A: If you have lost most or all of your teeth, dentures may be right for you. For those with some natural teeth remaining, partial dentures are recommended to improve chewing and speech. We recommend the use of Dental Implants under the upper and/or lower to help in the retention of the denture in the mouth. This will further aid in speech and chewing.
Q: Does bottled water contain fluoride?
A: No, unless stated on the label of ingredients. We recommend the use of a reusable bottle and filling it with filtered tap water. Filtering gets rid of most contaminants and leaves the fluoride for the strengthening of the teeth. This is recommended especially for children and teens.
