Finding the Perfect Dentist
Selecting the right person to care for your family’s dental health takes careful consideration. A good dentist combines clinical expertise with warmth and a genuine concern for patients. Points to consider:
- Are your goals, concerns, and ultimate satisfaction seen as important?
- Can you count on the dentist to focus on keeping your teeth health and strong?
- Did the doctor obtain his degree from a well-respected school?
- Does the dentist explain things in detail and include you as part of the team?
- Has the dentist been in practice enough time for you to feel comfortable about your treatment?
- Have you heard positive feedback about this doctor and practice?
ADDITIONAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GENERAL DENTISTRY
How often should I visit the dentist?
It is generally recommended that you visit the dentist every six months for a routine dental exam and cleaning. However, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits based on your individual needs and oral health.
What are some common signs of gum disease?
Common signs of gum disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, and receding gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to see your dentist for treatment.
How can I prevent cavities?
You can prevent cavities by practicing good oral hygiene, including brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods and drinks.
When should my child first visit the dentist?
Although the American Dental Association recommends starting visits when children get teeth, usually at age one, we often find that kids do best around three years old. At this time, the doctor can take a look to make sure everything is on target, and we can start to create positive feelings for your child so that he or she will look forward to visiting the dentist.
How can I maintain good oral health between dental visits?
In addition to practicing good oral hygiene, you can maintain good oral health by eating a healthy diet, avoiding tobacco use, and wearing a mouthguard when playing sports or engaging in other physical activities.
