4 Things Your Dentist Will Probably Tell You On The Next Visit

Your dental clinic has all the answers you’ll ever need

Many of us rush to the internet for any information not just regarding oral health but our overall wellbeing. Truth be told, there’s no shortage of information about anything online. But that doesn’t mean everything you come across, especially on the web, is authentic and true.

When it comes to your oral health, it’s best to get the advice of your Barrie dentist. Forget all the myths and misconceptions being spread about your oral health and focus on the facts. If you want to maintain a bright and healthy smile, source for information from the horse’s mouth. Your dental clinic has all the answers you’ll ever need so take advantage of the time you spend there. Some of the things your dentist is likely to tell you will be mentioned below.


Chew the right kind of gum

Chewing gum is not bad for your dental health. The problem comes when you chew the wrong kind of gum. Gum that contains Xylitol is highly recommended by dentists. This important ingredient helps to prevent the formation of bacteria in the mouth. It’s used to substitute sugar and can really help you to keep cavities at bay. The next time you feel the urge to chew, check the product label to ensure the gum contains Xylitol.

Review your insurance plan

Not all insurance plans provide the best care for dental issues. For a start, you need to ensure that your insurance provider offers at least 3 dental checkups. These are regular visits that you can schedule throughout the year to simply have the dentist review the state of your teeth and gums. Most insurance companies do not cover any procedure under cosmetic dentistry. When shopping for a dental clinic, be sure to find out if they are included in your insurance company’s network. Most importantly, know what is covered before you step into the dental clinic.


Never ignore bleeding gums

Bleeding gums are usually a sign that something is terribly wrong. When you have bleeding gums, chances are that you are suffering from a periodontal disease. Periodontal diseases can lead to permanent loss of teeth so you have to get it checked out immediately. Even minimal bleeding of the gums should not be ignored. Rush to the dentist immediately and you’ll be given a suitable treatment after proper tests are done.


Brush and floss correctly every day

Brushing and flossing your teeth is not enough to maintain good oral health. You need to practice proper brushing and flossing. If unsure of how to brush your teeth or floss, ask the dentist to do a quick demonstration. Your dentist will be happy to show you how to clean the tongue and even recommend the right products to use in order to keep bacteria out of your mouth.

A good dentist will care about your oral health just as much as you do. Feel free to ask questions and clarifications whenever you are unsure about anything. You can even go over some cosmetic procedures that can improve your smile.

The staff here are always so friendly! I hadn’t been to a dentist in years before coming here. It’s a very stress free environment where you can relax while there.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
