Frequently Asked Questions

Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions our Midland Dentist patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us!

Q: How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?

A: You should have your teeth checked and cleaned at least twice a year, though your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend more frequent visits. Regular dental exams and cleaning visits are essential in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. I cannot stress this enough. There are many things that are checked and monitored to help detect problems, prevent issues, and maintain your dental health. Many of these include:

  • Medical history review
  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Gum disease evaluation
  •  Examination for tooth decay
  •  Removal of calculus (tartar)
  •  Removal of plaque
  •  Teeth polishing
  •  Oral hygiene recommendations
  •  Review dietary habits

As you can see, a good dental exam and cleaning involve quit a lot more than just checking for cavities and polishing your teeth. We are committed to providing you with the best possible care, and to do so will require regular check-ups and cleanings.

Q: How often should I brush and floss?

A: Brushing and flossing help control the plaque that cause dental disease. Plaque formation is continuous and can only be controlled by regular brushing, flossing , and the use of other dental aids.
Toothbrushing – Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Once after breakfast each morning, and again before going to bed at night. Always use an ADA approved soft bristle brush. We recommend the Sonicare electric brushes for everyone. These brushes are amazing devices and we have seen tremendous improvement in our patients’ oral health just by changing to this brush. We carry these brushes in our office at a very affordable price. Ask us about these great brushes!
Flossing – Daily flossing is the best way to clean between the teeth and under the gumline. Nothing substitutes for flossing! Floss holders or the “floss pics” are recommended if you have difficulty using conventional floss. Always floss before brushing.
