In this post, we will discuss the top dental questions asked by our patients. It’s perfectly natural to have questions regarding visiting the dentist. Our goal is to make your dental visit as stress-free as possible for you. We provide detailed information on all the dental services we provide, including general dentistry, preventive care, and cosmetic dentistry, as well as tips about unexpected dental issues.
1. Which toothpaste should I use?
It can be confusing when there are so many options to choose from, especially when so much information is available.For those who adhere to their dentist’s advice about brushing, flossing, and other dental habits, the right toothpaste can prevent gum pain, stained teeth, cavities, and other more serious dental problems.
You should always choose a toothpaste that has been proven effective in laboratory testing, but it should also contain fluoride. Fluoride coats the teeth and guards them against decay-causing acids.
A sticky layer of bacteria forms daily on your teeth. This layer is called plaque, and it reacts with certain foods, mainly sugars, to produce acids that erode your enamel, resulting in tiny holes (cavities). Calculus (also called tartar) is formed by bacterial plaque that hardens. Once it has reached this stage, no matter how hard you brush, you cannot remove it; only a dental professional can do so.
The purpose of toothpaste varies. Some kinds of toothpaste are designed to target specific purposes (or multiple purposes); for example, they are made to whiten, prevent plaque and tartar, and be all-natural and herbal.
2. How frequently should I visit my dentist and have my teeth cleaned?
Many people have different opinions about how frequently they should visit their dentist. On average, most people need to visit their dentist twice a year for a regular hygiene visit and once every six months for regular cleaning. A dentist may recommend more frequent visits if you have gum disease or if you have a history of gum disease. You may also need to see the dentist more often if you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
3. Why are my teeth yellow?
Diet: Some foods are high in tannins, such as red wine, which may cause yellow teeth. Coffee, tea, and wine are among the most common beverages that cause tooth discoloration. As a result, these substances get into the enamel of your teeth and can result in long-term discoloration.
4. How long will my dental fillings last?
Many people believe dental restorations last forever, but this is not always the case. As time progresses, dental restorations may become loose or break down, which allows decay to enter the area around the restoration. Fillings, bridges, and crowns will not last forever, but you can ensure they last as long as possible by taking care of them. To ensure that those restorations stay in good shape for as long as possible, ensure that you maintain great oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly.
5. What is the best way to whiten my teeth?
We are frequently asked about whitening teeth by patients. The answer to this question is not universal, so there is no one universal answer that can be applied to everyone. A professional whitening procedure in the office is the fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth. Your dentist will be able to determine what type of teeth whitening will be best suited for your needs. Our best advice is to speak with your Dentist about what type of teeth whitening would be best.
6. Can I get an MRI with my dental implant?
A few metals, such as steel, nickel, and cobalt, are highly susceptible to magnets. These metals are called ferromagnets. They react to the magnetic field created by MRI units and will interfere with the accuracy of MRI images. Patients are advised to remove any metal objects before having an MRI.
Titanium and zirconia are not ferromagnetic metals, so they do not react to magnets. This is why most implants and crowns made by reputable brands are made from these metals.
7. Is it possible to postpone my tooth filling?
When left untreated, cavities have ample time to attack your teeth. If a cavity penetrates your enamel and reaches your tooth’s pulp, it can result in irreversible damage to your tooth. Regular dental checkups can detect cavities in your teeth before you experience pain.
A cavity can be filled if detected early, but you may need a root canal treatment or lose the affected tooth if ignored.
