How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

We recommend you brush your teeth twice a day and encourage daily flossing. The most effective way to prevent the build up of plaque is through daily flossing.

What kind of toothbrush is most recommended?

We recommend a soft bristled brush for the optimal health of your gums. We also suggest a small headed brush to get around each tooth more thoroughly. We also highly recommend the Sonicare brand toothbrush, it is the best cleaning toothbrush on the market, no matter how good your dental hygeine is, the sonicare will improve it.

Do I need to floss regularly?

Yes, it is important to floss daily because flossing removes plaque between teeth where it is hard for a toothbrush to reach. A major contributing factor to gum disease is caused by not flossing.

How often should I have a dental cleaning and examination?

For optimal oral health, we recommend that you find a dentist get a dental cleaning and exam every six months. An oral exam consists of examining your teeth, removing plaque, potentially taking x-rays, along with a deep tooth cleaning and polish.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

Unfortunately, most people that have gum disease are unaware of it. Because gum disease is painless as it begins, it is crucial to schedule regular dental exams. Symptoms of gum disease include consistent bad breath, receding gums, red or bleeding gums, new spaces between teeth, and loose teeth. If you have a concern about gum disease we recommend you make an appointment at our dentist clinic.

How can I get rid of stains or discolorations on my teeth?

There are many products and methods available to whiten teeth. However, we recommend professional teeth whitening as the best way to improve your smile. Contact our dentist clinic today, to find out more information about teeth whitening and if it is right for you.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please make sure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you can provide us with the necessary paperwork and insurance information.
