Frequently asked questions for our dentist in Orleans

1Why should I go to the dentist regularly?
People often shy away from dental visits unless they experience toothaches. However, what people don't realize is by visiting your dentist regularly, these unfortunate experiences can easily be prevented. You can eliminate emergencies situations and instead practice 'preventive treatment' to ensure that you have excellent oral health. Regular attendance can also increase your oral health awareness and provide you with tips and tricks on how to care for your teeth and gums, so you don't experience pain!
2How can I prevent cavities?
It may seem obvious, but the easiest way to prevent cavities is by adequately cleaning your teeth! The most common yet effective way is through regular and routine brushing. Ideally, it is best to brush your teeth after every meal. If that's not possible, you can at least rinse your mouth with water to wash away food leftovers as they are often the primary source of bacteria in your mouth.

The best technique to brushing is neither to press hard nor lightly as both can lead to either damage to your gums or ineffective brushing. Instead, the right balance of pressure can remove bacteria while without disturbing your gums. The practice of brushing your teeth normally spans about 2 to 3 minutes in order to effectively remove tooth enamel and bacteria effectively.

Another way to maintain healthy teeth is by watching what you eat! It's certain types of foods that encourage and contribute to bacteria growth more so than others. And it's no myth that sugar makes it to the top of the list! Sweets like candy, cakes, and even fruits contain large amounts of sugar. You may want to think about how much sugary goodness you consume regularly. But it's not just sugar, sticky foods like peanut butter and jam also contribute to bacterial growth. Those suckers stick in between your teeth and make it hard to clean them out without floss! If sticky treats are not removed, they become a constant source of bacterial growth. Just thinking about what you're eating and practicing good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing often can satisfy your sweet tooth and help maintain your genuine smile!
3When should I change my toothbrush?
It depends on your type of toothbrush; however, the general recommendation is three months regardless of age. If you are an electronic toothbrush user, it can have a longer life before needing replacement.

A tip we'd like to share with you is to rinse your toothbrush with hot water immediately after use. This practice would kill the bacteria left on your toothbrush and prevent it from spreading. You'll also have a bacteria-free toothbrush for when you're brushing your teeth next!
4Why should I use floss?
Flossing may just arguably be more valuable than brushing! But don't just choose one over the other - practice both! Brushing and flossing both serve different needs for your oral health. There are millions of microscopic creatures living on and in between your teeth feeding on food residue from your previous meal(s). It's quite a disturbing thought. The bacteria forms on plaque and rapidly multiplies. While brushing your teeth removes bacteria on the surface of your teeth, flossing serves the inner spaces between your teeth. So as you can see...You can't just do one and expect to have healthy teeth. You need to practice both!

Don’t let plaque stay between your teeth. More importantly, don’t wait for it to become tartar as this may lead to a more serious case.
5Why do my teeth have a yellowish tint?
There are a lot of factors we might not notice we are doing that contribute to the darkening yellowish tint on our teeth. The most common contributors to darker teeth are smoking and hot beverages like coffee. The temperate change to your teeth is considered hazardous as it causes them to expand and contract which allows strains to penetrate your teeth. Additionally, acidic foods can open the pores of your tooth enamel and allow stains to move freely on your teeth. Having said this, try to be mindful of your hot beverages and acidic foods consumption! Try to practice a balanced diet that does not include extreme consumption or sudden and complete withdrawal of consumption.
6Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening treatment has been around for quite some time and is a trending way of maintaining a beautiful smile. The process usually involves the use of peroxide which is a compound containing two oxygen atoms that are bound together. The purpose of peroxide can be a beneficial whitening substance if used directly on teeth. With the best product and an experienced dentist who is an expert in the field, teeth whitening is a very safe, effective and reliable treatment for having perfect pearly whites.
