1. What is Dentistry?

Dentistry is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions, disorders, and diseases of the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw. Often considered necessary for complete oral health, dentistry can have an impact on the health of your entire body.

2. How often should you visit a Dentist?

Visiting a dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning is recommended as mandatory. If you have not seen a dentist for awhile, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

3. What to expect in my first visit?

When you first arrive at Smilezone, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff, who will work work with you to gather your medical and dental history. The Doctor will examine your teeth, gums, screen completely for oral health.

4. Why visit a dentist?

    Oral health is important because it:
  • • Helps prevent tooth decay
  • • Protects against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
  • • Prevents bad breath – brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly will help reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath
  • • Gives you a more attractive smile and increases your self-confidence
  • • Helps keep teeth looking bright by preventing them from becoming stained by food, drinks, and tobacco
  • • Strengthens your teeth so that you can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of your life!

5. What in case of an emergency?

To better serve our patients, we invite you to call our office as soon as a dental emergency happens. If it takes place on a weekday, we will be glad to schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. For emergencies after hours, over the weekend and during holidays, please call our office for the doctor’s emergency contact number.

6. What should I do between dental check ups?

  • • ALWAYS remember to brush your teeth at least two times a day, and floss at least once!
  • • Make sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride, and ask your dentist if you need a fluoride rinse. This will help prevent cavities.
  • • Avoid foods with a lot of sugar (sugar increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth causing more plaque and possibly cavities) and avoid tobacco (this can stain your teeth, cause gum disease, and eventually lead to oral cancer).
  • • Don't be afraid to brush your tongue! By brushing your tongue, you will remove food particles and reduce the amount of plaque-causing bacteria. Tongue brushing also helps keep your breath fresh.
  • • Be sure to schedule your routine checkup. It is recommended that you visit the dentist every six months.

7. What is a cavity?

A cavity is a small hole that forms inside the tooth because of tooth decay. Cavities are formed when plaque buildup on the outside of the tooth combines with sugars and starches in the food you eat. This produces an acid that can eat away the enamel on your tooth. If a cavity is left untreated, it can lead to more serious oral health problems. Cavities can be prevented by remembering to brush your teeth at least two times a day and floss between teeth at least once.

8. What is a filling?

A filling is a synthetic material that your dentist uses to fill a cavity after all of the tooth decay has been removed. Fillings do not generally hurt because your dentist will numb your mouth with an anesthetic. Fillings are made from a variety of different materials, including composites, gold, or ceramic. If you need a filling, be sure to talk to your doctor about what type is best for you and your teeth.

9. How bad are gum disorders?

Mostly caused by plaque and bacteria buidup which are not treated in the early stages. If not treated immediately may result in permanent bone and tooth loss and become a permanent condition. Common signs includes

  • • Red, irritated, bleeding or swollen gums.
  • • Chronic bad breath
  • • Loose teeth or loss of teeth
  • • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • • Receding gum line
  • • Abscessed teeth

10. For braces, what will be the frequency of dental check ups?

Frequency will be once in six months. Our dentist will work closely with your orthodontist to make sure that your teeth stay clean and healthy while wearing braces.
