Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get professional dental cleanings?

It’s recommended for most individuals to undergo professional dental cleanings every six months. However, those with specific dental conditions or at a higher risk for gum diseases might benefit from more frequent visits. At Coastal Dental, after a comprehensive assessment, we’ll provide a personalised recommendation tailored to your oral health needs.

Why is professional cleaning necessary if I brush and floss daily?

While daily brushing and flossing are crucial, they might not remove all the plaque and tartar, especially from hard-to-reach areas. Professional cleanings use specialised tools to ensure a thorough cleaning, preventing potential dental issues down the line. Moreover, routine professional assessments can spot and address budding dental problems before they escalate.

What are dental sealants, and who should consider them?

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the grooves of back teeth (molars) to prevent cavities. They act as barriers, safeguarding teeth against food residues and bacteria. While typically recommended for children once their permanent molars come in, adults without fillings or decay in their molars can also benefit from sealants.

Can poor dental hygiene affect my overall health?

Absolutely. Numerous studies have linked oral health to systemic health. Poor dental hygiene can lead to gum diseases, which, in turn, have been associated with heart diseases, diabetes, and even complications during pregnancy. By maintaining robust dental hygiene, you’re not just securing your oral health but potentially safeguarding your overall well-being.

I have sensitive teeth. Will the cleaning process be painful?

At Coastal Dental, we prioritise patient comfort. If you have sensitive teeth or any anxieties, please inform us. Our skilled hygienists employ gentle techniques, and we can also offer mild numbing agents or sedatives to ensure a comfortable experience. Our goal is to provide you with top-tier dental hygiene services without any discomfort.
