Common Questions

How can I keep my teeth healthy between dental visits?

To maintain healthy teeth between dental visits, brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, eat a balanced diet, avoid sugary drinks, and limit snacking. Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups. If you use tobacco or drink alcohol, reducing consumption can greatly improve your oral health.

How can I prepare for my first visit to a general dentist?

It’s a good idea to gather information about your dental history, including any past dental procedures and current medications. Additionally, it’s helpful to practice good oral hygiene in the days leading up to your appointment, such as brushing and flossing regularly.

What are some common dental problems that general dentists treat?

Common dental problems that general dentists treat include cavities, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, and bad breath. They also help with teeth straightening, teeth whitening, and dental bridges and crowns.

Are there any special considerations for children and elderly patients in general dentistry?

Children and elderly have unique dental needs in general dentistry. Children may need specialised treatments like fluoride & sealants to prevent cavities & promote growth. Elderly patients may require more frequent check-ups & specialised treatments such as dentures or dental implants. Personalized care tailored to specific needs is important.
