Common Questions From Our Dental Patients

Posted on 12/23/2021 by Brandon Cooley
Common Questions From Our Dental PatientsCleaning your teeth regularly can help prevent cavities and teach you how to maintain proper oral hygiene in between appointments. It also allows you to share any concerns or issues with the dentist, and it allows the dentist to address them regularly. Preventative care typically detects oral problems early on, allowing you to address them while they are still minor. It may even save you money in the long run by allowing you to address oral issues before they become costly and time-consuming. Our dentists will answer the questions that you have concerning dental health.

Why should I floss? Isn't Brushing enough?

Brushing your teeth isn't enough to eliminate all of the plaque. Flossing eliminates plaque from hard-to-reach areas where cavities are more likely to form. Flossing is a vital aspect of good dental care because it removes harmful bacteria and plaque from your teeth and gums. The dentist will advise you on the best toothpaste for your teeth.

How can I relieve sensitivity of teeth?

Sensitivity in teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, thus there are a variety of ways to treat it. This is one of the most common dental patient queries, and the solutions will vary according to your lifestyle and demands. Some reasons for sensitivity are as simple as requiring a soft touch on your teeth. Plaque can be gently removed with a soft bristles toothbrush, and the dentist can recommend solutions to help you care for your sensitive teeth. Acidic meals can wear away at tooth enamel, increasing sensitivity. It may be beneficial to avoid certain foods. Fluoridated mouthwash and toothpaste can also aid sensitive teeth. Teeth grinding is one cause of sensitive teeth. Consult the dentist to see if wearing a mouth guard will help you reduce sensitivity.
