Frequently Asked Questions

What type of toothpaste and toothbrush should I use?

Never before has there been such a dizzying array of toothbrushes on the market. Consumers are inundated with new designs, materials, attachments, and colors. Whatever toothbrush design you choose, the most important thing is that you use the toothbrush at least 2-3 times a day. Moreover, how long you spend brushing your teeth is as critical as how often you brush.  This ensures complete plaque removal in hard to reach areas.

Our dental team highly recommends a mechanical (electric) toothbrush. The pulsations break up plaque efficiently. Many models now have timers to remind you to brush longer.

It is always nice to have a backup manual toothbrush. When choosing a manual toothbrush, look for a compact head with very soft, rounded bristles.

Should I use mouthwash?

This is sort of a loaded question! Mouthwash, overall, is safe for us, but it can affect people differently. We recommend using it to help reduce risk of gum disease and gingivitis, but also make sure you consult with your dentist first!

What's the best way to whiten my teeth?

Not everyone needs teeth whitening procedures done. You can get great results by routine brushing (twice per day), by using a whitening toothpaste, and investing in an electric toothbrush!

Do I really need to floss?

Yes, absolutely!

1. Flossing is an essential part of any oral care routine. Brushing alone is not enough to remove food debris or clean areas between your teeth. Flossing removes plaque and prevents cavities and gum disease.

2. Dental floss is waxed or unwaxed. There are no significant findings of one being better than the other so use the floss that feels best to you.

3. Floss can be purchased in small self-dispensing boxes. Floss can also be purchased in special, single-use holders, which are useful for people who have a hard time wrapping floss around their fingers, including those with dexterity problems or arthritis.

Why do I need routine dental exams?

Routine dental exams are important for your overall dental health. During your exam, the dental team will look for tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer and other health problems. The exams are also used to help educate you on the best ways to care for your teeth and gums.

What are early signs of dental trouble?

A few signs can include red or swollen gums, bad breath, sensitive teeth, or pain around your teeth or gums.
