Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to visit the dentist?
While there are many notions swirling around, it is recommended that you visit the dentist for a regular hygiene visit twice a year, or every six months. If you have a history of gum disease or other problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
How safe are X-rays?
Dental X-rays are very safe. The amount of radiation that a dental x-ray produces is the same as a cross country airplane ride, coming in at only 0.5 millirems.
What actually is a cavity?
A cavity is simply a small recess or hour in your tooth as a result of tooth decay. Decay eats away at your tooth over time and impacts the bone structure of your tooth.
Do I Need to Floss?
There’s no getting around the need to floss. Food and plaque make their way in-between your teeth and lodge its self under your gumline. The only way to disrupt the growth of bacteria in these areas is through flossing.
