Frequently Asked Questions

How many times a day should I brush my teeth?


Most dentists and dental professionals suggest that you brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brushing after every meal and flossing once a day is a good way to maintain your dental health.




When should a child have his or her first dental appointment?


A child should visit a dentist no later than his or her third birthday. Many dentists recommend that children should have an appointment when their first tooth comes in.




Who needs to have their wisdom teeth removed?


If you are in danger of developing impacted wisdom teeth, you should have them removed to prevent damage to your adjacent molars. This will help to avoid other oral problems.




Who needs dentures?


If you have lost most or all of your teeth, dentures might be the right option for you. If you have natural teeth remaining, partial dentures are recommended to improve chewing and speech.
