How often should someone visit the dentist?

Dr. Patel recommends that patients of all ages should receive at least one checkup and cleaning every six months. These routine appointments ensure that little problems are dealt with early, plus professional cleanings can stop cavities and gum disease from developing in the first place.

Why do I need dental cleanings if I brush/floss every day?

While consistent brushing and flossing are essential to your long-term oral health, your tools at home simply aren’t able to clean every single surface in your mouth. Everyone has hard to reach areas that can accumulate plaque over time which eventually turns into cavities. The only way to effectively clean these trouble spots is with the sophisticated tools used by our hygiene team.

What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

While you’ll find plenty of whitening products at the store as well as DIY methods online, getting professional whitening from a dentist is still the safest and most reliable way to brighten your smile. At Neosmile Dental Care, we use Zoom! Whitening because it’s able to break up stubborn stains in just an hour to make the teeth up to eight shades lighter in just one appointment.

Is there a way I can straighten my teeth without metal braces?

Yes, and it’s called Invisalign. With this treatment, a patient wears a series of clear plastic aligner trays as opposed to metal brackets and wires. They are practically invisible when on the teeth, meaning patients don’t have to worry about friends or coworkers noticing them. They are easily removable as well, meaning a patient will be able to maintain their regular diet and brushing routine while getting the smile they’ve always wanted.
