Clinical Questions

1

What Should I Expect During a Dental Check-up?

When you come to our dental clinic, our dentist will ask about your medical history and examine your mouth. The dental hygienist may also use special dental equipment to check your gums for gum disease. We believe in conducting a comprehensive dental exam to uncover existing and potential dental health issues.

2

Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

Even though dental x-rays require a low-level of radiation exposure, they are safe. Our dentists take precautions and employ every possible technique to make dental x-rays as safe as possible. A leaded apron helps protect the entire body from radiation, while a leaded thyroid collar shields the thyroid from radiation.

3

Why Do Teeth Need Fluoride?

Fluoride helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. According to the American Dental Association (A.D.A.), Center for Disease Control (C.D.C.), and American Academy of Paediatrics, both kids and adults should use toothpaste rich in fluoride to brush their teeth.

At What Age Should My Child Start Visiting the Dentist?
