Frequently Asked Questions
Regular dental check-ups are essential as they allow us to monitor the overall health of your mouth, gums, and teeth. These visits enable early detection of potential issues such as cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer. Addressing these problems at their initial stages often means simpler treatments, reduced costs, and better health outcomes.
It’s recommended to have a professional dental cleaning every six months. These cleanings remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing might miss. Moreover, our trained hygienists can also provide feedback on your at-home oral care routine, ensuring optimal dental health.
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent tooth decay. They act as barriers, shielding enamel from plaque and acids. While they’re especially beneficial for children and teenagers, adults without fillings or decay on their molars can also benefit from sealants.
While fluoride treatments are commonly associated with paediatric dental care, adults can benefit from them too. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and helps prevent tooth decay. Depending on individual risk factors, such as a history of cavities or the presence of crowns and bridges, adults may be recommended fluoride treatments to bolster their oral health.
Custom mouthguards are highly recommended for anyone participating in contact sports or activities that pose a risk of injury to the mouth. Unlike generic mouthguards, custom-fitted ones provide a better fit, ensuring optimal protection against dental trauma. They also tend to be more comfortable, encouraging consistent use.
