To help you know more about your dentist, dental care, and oral hygiene, our Studio 1 Dental dental team is happy to give you the answers to these frequently asked questions:

Why do regular dental visits matter?
Regular dental visits are vital for your oral health. These appointments give our dental team the chance to professionally clean your smile and remove the plaque that resides on your teeth. This is the only way to completely remove the plaque. If you do not attend your appointments on a regular basis, your smile can fall victim to tooth decay and gum disease.

What are some signs that I should see the dentist?
Some oral health dangers that request your dentist’s treatment include tooth sensitivity, swollen and bleeding gums, constant bad breath, toothaches, jaw pain, dry mouth, difficulty chewing and swallowing, broken dental restorations, and receding gums. However, if you have any concerns whatsoever, we encourage you to see the dentist anyway.

What can I expect during a dental checkup?
You can expect a deep teeth cleaning, a fluoride treatment, dental X-rays, and a dental exam at your dental checkup. You might even experience dental treatment if you have a problem that needs immediate fixing.

How do I maintain a healthy smile?
For a healthy smile 24/7, you need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash. You also need to visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam.

What should I look for when choosing a dentist?
The best things to look for when searching for a dentist are:

· If the office is at a convenient location for you
· If the office is clean and organized
· If the dentist accepts your health insurance
· If you feel comfortable with the dental team
· If the dentist provides emergency hours
