Family Dentistry: Frequently Asked Questions
We look forward to welcoming your entire family to our office. Our comprehensive dental services promote good oral hygiene habits and encourage longterm dental health. Here are some frequently asked questions about our family dentistry services
My child is especially anxious about going to the dentist. What can we do?
It is common for many people and children to experience dental anxiety during their dental appointment. Talking with our doctors about our sedation dentistry options is a great way to look for alternatives to assist with dental anxiety. Our sedation dentistry practices assist in keeping your child calm and comfortable throughout the appointment. Additionally, our doctors provide compassionate dental care, so you don’t have to worry.
What should I expect at our first dental appointment?
For our new patients, we have a whole page dedicated to helping you prepare for your first appointment. You should expect to be welcomed into our office with a smile. Our team will consult with you on your previous dental history, provide a thorough dental cleaning, and provide you with a treatment plan for any dental concerns you may have.
What are some good brushing or flossing techniques?
You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, but preferably after each meal. Brush your teeth gently to avoid cutting your gums. Move the brush in a variety of different positions to remove buildup from the fronts, backs, and sides of your teeth. You should aim to floss at least once a day to get in your mouth’s hard-to-reach spaces. Wrap the floss around the base of your tooth to get close to the gum line.
How often should I see a dentist?
You should see your dentist at least twice a year, or every six months. This is because dental issues quickly become bigger issues if not taken care of in a timely manner. Regular dental cleanings and exams prevent tooth loss, gum disease, or tooth decay. The more often you see your dentist, the less likely you are to be affected by the consequences of poor oral health.
