Proper oral hygiene should include regular brushing of teeth twice a day for 2 minutes and dental chec-ups once every six months. Additionally:
Checkups are recommended once every 6 months, but you should also visit the dentist whenever you feel discomfort in the oral cavity involving teeth, gums, muscles or joints.
The first visit does not require any special preparations. All you need to do is fill in the health questionnaire and clean your teeth thoroughly before meeting the dentist. Details related to the first visit and document templates can be found here: first visit.
The child’s first regular visit to the dentist should take place around the age of 2-3 years and should be preceded by an adaptation visit. We have described the whole process of familiarising children with the dentist and the office in the Parental Guide.
Teeth sensitivity is manifested by a feeling of pain or severe discomfort, which is a reaction to stimuli – most often to the cold or sugars contained in food. If you notice that you experience sudden pain when eating ice cream or drinking cold drinks, and it lasts as long as your teeth are in contact with the stimulus, you are probably suffering from teeth sensitivity. In such a situation, you should visit a dentist who will select the appropriate method of treatment.
Absolutely! Treating teeth during pregnancy is even advisable, because untreated lesions and inflammation can spread bacteria throughout the body and cause complications, such as premature birth.
There is no single cause for this problem, so see your dentist if your gums are bleeding. The dentist will identify the cause of the bleeding and select the right treatment. Gum problems should not be ignored, because untreated inflammation can lead to periodontitis.
Unfortunately, no. Toothache will not go away on its own, and if it becomes less intense for a moment, you can be sure that it will return – but stronger. That is why you should visit your dentist as soon as possible. We accept people with extremely severe pain outside the standard work schedule – as emergencies.
