Frequently Asked Questions
If you want to ask, then ask
Many patients don’t see the dentist unless they notice a dental problem. Skipping your regular check up to the dentist increases risks for developing cavities, gum disease and similar dental health related issues. The American Dental Association highly recommends coming in to see the dentist at least every six months for a regular dental exam, where a professional can use advanced tools and technology to properly assess your dental health and notice changes in dental health you may not even be aware of from home. By restoring small dental issues while they’re small, it becomes less invasive and less costly than having to treat more complex dental issues down the line.
Most people will tell the dentist they floss more often than they really do! While flossing may not seem as rewarding as regular brushing, the act of flossing plays an important role in removing tough food particles from between your teeth. When food is trapped between the teeth for long periods of time it begins to break down, releasing powerful sugars that can erode the enamel and cause cavities, tooth decay and root canals to form. Flossing is often the only way to remove trapped food particles and bacteria from between the teeth.
Finding and treating dental issues early-on often saves patients time, money and peace of mind by preventing more complex and difficult-to-treat dental problems from developing. At your six month exam, Dr. Bassett may use dental X-rays and Cone Beam technology to examine areas of your dental health you can’t see in the mirror. Dental imaging is a powerful tool in examining the teeth, gums and mouth in exceptional detail. It is commonly used to detect a range of dental health related symptoms, such as periodontal disease (gum disease), infections in the bone or gums, and small areas of tooth decay even below a dental filling. Your need for dental X-rays will be determined by the initial review of your dental health by your dentist.
If you’ve noticed a pink color in the sink when you rinse your mouth, it could be a sign that your gums may bleed when brushing. If this happens, be sure to give us a call for a timely checkup. While many patients have experienced gums that bleed when brushing, this is NOT a normal condition. In fact, red, swollen or bleeding gums could be a symptom of gum disease or periodontitis, painful dental conditions that can be harmful to your dental health. Treating gum disease and restoring your smile is relatively simple with the help of your local dentist. If you have questions about a change in your dental health, give us a call to schedule a consultation.
