Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about hygiene services for children and adults? Find answers to commonly asked questions below.

Dental hygiene is crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, preventing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. It also contributes to overall health by reducing the risk of systemic diseases linked to poor oral hygiene.

It’s generally recommended that both adults and children visit the dentist for a dental cleaning and examination every six months. However, the frequency may vary depending on individual oral health needs and conditions.

Fluoride treatments involve applying a fluoride solution to the teeth to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. They are beneficial for both adults and children by reducing the risk of tooth decay and strengthening teeth against acids and bacteria.

Children should have their first dental visit by the age of one or within six months of getting their first tooth.

Baby teeth, also known as primary teeth, play a crucial role in a child’s development. They help children chew food properly, speak clearly, and maintain space for the permanent teeth to come in correctly. It’s essential to care for baby teeth by brushing them twice a day with fluoride toothpaste as soon as they erupt. Additionally, parents should schedule their child’s first dental visit by the age of one to ensure proper dental care and monitor the development of their primary teeth.

Encourage your child to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, eat a balanced diet low in sugary foods and drinks, and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Lead by example and make oral hygiene a fun and positive experience for them.

We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for children, with friendly staff, and gentle care. We take the time to explain procedures in a way that children can understand and address any concerns they may have to ensure a positive experience.

We offer a range of routine dental checkup services tailored for adults and children, including routine cleanings, examinations, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, gum disease evaluation and treatment, and oral hygiene education.

A typical teeth cleaning appointment usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. The duration can vary depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, as well as the thoroughness required for your cleaning. Regular cleanings help keep your teeth and gums healthy and can often be completed more quickly than if you haven’t had a cleaning in a while.
