You want to take care of your teeth properly, and we want to give you knowledge to help you do it. At Cornerstone Dental in Burlington, we answer dental health questions all the time. Here are some common questions on dental hygiene, restorative work, orthodontics, and more.
We recommend Canadians to visit the dentist once every six months for a teeth cleaning. Depending on the health status of your teeth, your dentist may recommend more frequent cleanings.
Kids are recommended to visit the dentist six months after the first eruption of their first tooth, or by the time they are one year old. If you notice dental abnormalities, however, please see a dentist as soon as possible.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends flossing at least once a day and brushing at least twice a day. However, it’s ideal to brush after every meal because bacteria from stuck food start acting almost immediately after you eat.
We understand that flossing is a hard habit to maintain. Educate your children so they adapt this habit early. To take away some of the boredom, floss while you’re watching TV or listening to music.
Bleaching agents and surface whiteners can help make teeth appear whiter. Certain foods and drinks (such as coffee and tea) and tobacco can stain teeth. Your natural complexion or choice of make-up also influences how your teeth are perceived.
