How often should I visit the dentist?
Dentists recommend coming in to receive a routine teeth cleaning and comprehensive checkup, which includes taking x-rays, twice a year. If your oral health isn’t where it needs to be, or you’re dealing with issues like progressive gum disease or an infection, you may be asked to book more frequent appointments so your dentist can keep a close eye on things.
When should I bring my child in for their first visit?
Once your child has their very first tooth come in, it’s advised that you bring them in to see a pediatric or general family dentist within the year. Even though their oral cavity isn’t as developed as an adult’s, issues surrounding decay, tongue or lip-tie, or facial trauma can still occur. Their dentist will be able to establish a baseline of their dental hygiene and identify anything that may impact their physical development. If you’re unsure about this or have any questions, it’s always a smart idea to play it safe and see a dentist near you as soon as you can.
What is the most effective way to replace a missing tooth?
When left unattended, some oral health problems can turn into more complicated issues. One such situation is when you have gaps in your smile due to missing teeth. If you don’t take certain preventative steps, over time your neighboring teeth can start to shift to fill in that space. As a result, an irregular bite pattern may develop as well as tooth fragmentation and even bone deterioration.
Fortunately, there are several different ways you can go about restoring the function and appearance of your smile. Dentures, both partial and complete, a dental bridge, or dental implants are just three examples.
Are you currently accepting new patients?
We welcome all patients with open arms. Lakewood Dental is accepting new dental patients without the need for a referral, and we look forward to the privilege of being your Saskatoon Dental Health provider.
How do I care for my teeth between check-ups?
Many people inquire about how they can maintain this feeling for an extended period of time in between their scheduled visits. We are happy to offering the following advice and tips on how you can do this at home.
1. Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time.
2. Floss at least once a day before going to sleep.
3. Use a mouthwash rinse that is recommended by your dentist.
4. Drink plenty of water and forego sugary sodas.
5. Limit the amount of caffeine you drink.
6. Adjust your oral care habits to fit your specific needs.
7. Limit the number of snack foods, candy, and sugary treats you eat.
How do I achieve optimal oral health?
Many studies have proven that oral health has a strong correlation to overall health for example conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes are directly associated with the presence and severity of oral health disease. We recommend prioritizing your oral hygiene and taking on a preventative approach. This means our dentists in Saskatoon encourage patients to schedule regular cleaning and checkups to ensure oral health issues are prevented or detected early on for effective treatment.
