FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1) How many times we should visit a dentist in a year?

Your dentist can determine how often you should visit a dental office, based on examination and evaluation of your total health status and many other factors, such as: examination of your mouth and X-rays; existence of gum disease and bone loss; examination of existing fillings, crowns or implants; dentures; how quickly calculus (tartar) builds up and attaches to your tooth surface; oral cancer screening; detection of tumours or cysts; eruption of your wisdom teeth; your age; if you have orthodontic appliances.

2) When should my child have their first X-rays of their teeth?

Generally, dentists determine when the child needs to take their first X-ray based on the founding and evaluation of overall mouth health status of the child. Generally, children should have X-rays when they have cavities between the teeth, and dentists take X-ray to detect them. Similarly, if there is some trauma to the teeth, or there are missing teeth, and this needs to be followed up with a dental professional.

3) Why it is important to use dental floss?
Tooth brushing helps remove food particles, plaque and bacteria from your teeth. Daily flossing cleans between the teeth, where a toothbrush cannot reach.

4) What is the most common cause of bad breath?
The most common cause is bacteria in the mouth and back of the tongue, and because of poor oral hygiene habits, gum disease, dental cavities and improperly fitted dental appliances. Other reasons for bad breath can be:

  •  Morning time: reduced cleaning action of saliva flow during sleep.
  •  Dry mouth: from certain medications or from breathing through the mouth.
  • Tobacco products: dry the mouth and give bad breath.
  • Certain foods: odour causing compounds.
You should visit your dentist to look for gum disease, dental cavities, and improperly filled dental appliances, if you your own care does is not improving your bad breath.
