Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?
It’s recommended that you schedule a routine check-up and professional cleaning at least twice a year, or every six months. This allows us to eliminate any plaque or bacteria built-up in hard-to-reach areas your toothbrush simply can’t get to. Dental exams also prevent additional oral health problems, like cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.
During a regular cleaning, we’ll also give your teeth a detailed polishing so you’ll leave our office with a fresh smile ready to show off. If you’ve had any gum problems or infection, our dentists may suggest coming in more often for additional cleanings to help maintain your oral health.
When should children have their first dental visit?
We suggest scheduling your child’s first dental visit around the ages of four and six months. During this stage, children’s primary (baby) teeth become erupted, or when they begin to show through the gums. Their first visit is targeted toward educating children on the importance of dentistry and how to practice proper oral hygiene at home.
How can I keep my smile in the best of health?
Maintaining good oral hygiene will ensure your teeth and gums are in the best of health. This means brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals. It’s also important to see your dentist for cleanings and exams at least twice a year. This allows us to eliminate any plaque or bacteria from building up, and prevent cavities, gum disease, and more.
In addition, Dr. Dailley recommend the following tips for optimal teeth and gum health:
- Avoid smoking and tobacco products
- Use a therapeutic mouthwash to rinse between meals
- Use a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush
- Look out for signs of unhealthy gums or gum disease
- Maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet
- Address teeth grinding, or bruxism
Will insurance cover an oral appliance?
Most insurance companies will cover all or a portion of the cost for an oral appliance, but some many not. We suggest contacting your provider prior to your consultation to get a better understanding of your insurance coverage. If you’d like, a member of our staff would be happy to contact them for you to ensure you receive the maximum benefits possible.
