Oral Health Q&A
Read answers to questions many patients have about their at-home hygiene and in-office dental treatments:
How often should I replace my toothbrush?
We recommend that patients replace their toothbrushes every 3 to 4 months. Over time, the brush bristles can wear down and lose their effectiveness. Additionally, bacteria may build up on the toothbrush. Replacing your toothbrush on a regular basis helps prevent the development of gum disease or cavities.
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you have just lost a permanent tooth or broken a restoration, call our office. Our dental office provides emergency dental care for patients with broken restorations, lost teeth, objects stuck between their teeth, excessive bleeding, and tooth pain. However, if you have sustained a dental injury and a physical injury, receive medical care first. We can provide oral health care after you are in good physical health.
Why should I visit the dentist twice a year?
Regular dental visits are more important than you may think. At routine dental appointments, our dental hygienists provide thorough dental cleanings to remove decay-causing bacteria from the mouth. Using specialized dental instruments, our hygienists clean plaque, and tartar from the teeth and gums. They can also provide fluoride treatment to prevent bacterial growth on the tooth’s surfaces.
We also take dental x-rays to keep an eye on the health of the teeth and gums. With these precise digital x-rays, we can view problems including impacted teeth, decayed teeth, crooked teeth, and more. We can easily diagnose and treat our patients using this technology.
Can I replace all of my missing teeth?
Yes, our team can treat patients who have single missing teeth to full arches of lost teeth. We will recommend dentures for rows and arches of missing teeth. Dental implants provide stability and longevity to dentures. Dr. Bellisario can coordinate implant surgery before patients receive their denture prostethic.
