Why is it so important to visit your dentist regularly?
Regular dental check-ups will help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Good dental care will also help:
- Prevent tooth decay
- Fight bad breath
- Prevent gum disease
- Make your smile more attractive
- Keep your teeth strong
- Keep your teeth looking white and bright
What can I do to prevent cavities?
Brush your teeth at least twice daily - every morning and every night. If possible, brush your teeth after meals, especially with large amounts of sugar. Sugar feeds the bacteria in your mouth, and rinsing or brushing after meals will go a long way in preventing tooth decay. Brush your teeth for two to three minutes each time, not brushing too hard. Flossing will remove the bacteria between your teeth.
What should I do if my gums bleed?
Bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease. If your gums are red, swollen, or irritated, you may have gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is easily treated with good oral hygiene and thorough professional cleaning. Contact ConfiDental in Beverly Hills to schedule teeth cleaning.
How often should I go to the dentist?
This depends on your oral health and habits. If you have a history of dental problems or a high risk of developing dental issues, you will need check-ups more often than someone with perfect dental health. A good rule of thumb is to visit your dentist twice a year. However, some people may only need to see their dentist once a year, while others may require more frequent visits. Your dentist can tell you how routine your checkups should be.
Why do I need dental X-rays?
At ConfiDental, we limit the use of X-rays for your safety and health. While X-rays are safe, we take as few as possible to limit your radiation exposure. Sometimes X-rays are necessary to diagnose a specific problem or to examine the extent of gum disease. If your oral health is good, you shouldn’t need X-rays more often than once every year or two.
