General Dentistry FAQs

How often should I change my toothbrush?

All good things must come to an end and no matter how comfortable you are with your toothbrush, you will eventually have to replace it. You will notice that the bristles of your brush will start to fade after about three to four months. This is a call for you to get a new brush as the bristles may not clean your teeth as well as a new toothbrush would.

Often when the bristles are worn out, patients tend to brush more vigorously, putting more pressure into cleaning their teeth. This defeats the purpose of good oral care and will only result in you stripping the away the protective layer of your teeth, known as enamel. This, in turn, exposes you to tooth decay, discolouration and sensitivity. If you suffered from a cold or mouth sores, it is also advisable that you change your toothbrush to prevent the infection from spreading.

Do I still need to see a dentist if my teeth are fine?

  • Absolutely. You are advised to see a dentist at least once in every three months to ensure good oral health. Problems may exist without you knowing and sometimes dentists can pick up on other healthcare related problems like heart disease. In this image-driven world, it is rare that people are completely satisfied with their appearance. Dental advancements and technologies have made it possible for people to fix both minor and major oral problems. Our treatments include:
  • General dentistry
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Lanap gum treatment

What should I look for when choosing a dentist?

A dentist is your partner in good oral health and bad. Here are a few questions you should ask before deciding on a dentist.

  • Is their office easy to travel to and convenient?
  • What are their policies regarding emergencies?
  • Is the office clean?
  • Am I comfortable around the staff?
  • Is the appointment schedule convenient?
  • What are the dentist’s qualifications?
  • How willing is the dentist to answer questions?
  • Would my insurance cover the cost of my treatment?
  • What treatment do they offer?
  • What are people saying about the practice on Facebook?
  • If you are a parent you should find out if they offer children’s dentistry and find out how good they are with children.
