According to the American Dental Association (ADA), it is recommended to floss at least once a day. This is because plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth, can harden and turn into tartar within 24 hours if not removed by proper brushing and flossing. Failing to remove plaque and tartar buildup can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

However, some individuals may need to floss more than once a day depending on their oral health needs and habits. For instance, those who have braces or other orthodontic appliances may need to floss after every meal as food particles tend to get stuck in between wires and brackets easily. Additionally, people with a higher risk of developing gum disease or those who have recently undergone dental procedures may also benefit from more frequent flossing.

Visiting the dentist regularly is crucial for maintaining good oral health. Not only does it help prevent dental problems, but it also allows the dentist to catch any issues early on and provide prompt treatment. However, many people are unsure about how often they should visit the dentist. In this section, we will discuss the recommended frequency of dental visits and factors that may affect how often you need to go.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), most individuals should visit their dentist at least every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. This recommendation applies to both adults and children with no current or ongoing dental issues. These biannual visits allow dentists to monitor your oral health and address any concerns before they escalate into bigger problems.

However, there are some exceptions where more frequent visits may be necessary. For instance, if you have a history of gum disease or are prone to cavities, the dentist may recommend more frequent visits, typically every three to four months. This regular monitoring helps keep these conditions under control and prevents further damage.

Step 1: Choosing the Right Toothbrush

The first step towards proper toothbrushing is choosing the right toothbrush. It is recommended to use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head that can easily reach all areas of your mouth. Hard or medium bristles can cause damage to your enamel and gums, so it's best to avoid them.

Step 2: Applying Toothpaste

Squeeze a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste onto your toothbrush. Fluoride helps strengthen your enamel and protects against cavities. If you have sensitive teeth or other dental issues, consider using specialized toothpaste recommended by your dentist.

Step 3: Positioning Your Toothbrush

Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle towards the gum line. This angle helps clean both the surface of your teeth and the area where they meet the gums.

Step 4: Brushing Motion

Using gentle circular motions, move the brush back and forth on each side of every tooth for about two minutes. Make sure you cover all surfaces - front, back, top, and chewing surfaces - to ensure thorough cleaning.

Step 5: Don't Forget Your Tongue

Brushing your tongue can help eliminate bacteria and freshen your breath. Gently brush your tongue from back to front.

Step 6: Rinse and Spit

After brushing, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. Spit out the toothpaste and any remaining debris.

While dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution, there are several factors that can affect their lifespan. These include:

1) Oral Hygiene: Good oral hygiene is crucial for maintaining the health of your dental implant. Poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease, which can cause bone loss around the implant and eventually lead to its failure.

2) Existing Health Conditions: Certain health conditions, such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and cancer, may affect the success rate of dental implants. It is important to inform your dentist about any pre-existing conditions before undergoing implant surgery.

3) Smoking: Smoking has been linked to an increased risk of implant failure due to its negative effects on healing and blood flow in the mouth.

4) Bite Force: Excessive bite force, such as teeth grinding or clenching, can put excessive pressure on the implant and cause it to fail.

5) Maintenance: Regular dental checkups and maintenance appointments are important for the longevity of your dental implant. Your dentist will assess the health of your implant and make any necessary adjustments or repairs.

Some common concerns addressed in a smile makeover include:

1. Crooked or misaligned teeth: Orthodontic treatments such as braces or clear aligners can help straighten crooked or misaligned teeth.

2. Discolored or stained teeth: Professional teeth whitening treatments can effectively remove stains and discoloration caused by aging, smoking, or consuming certain foods and drinks.

3. Gaps between teeth: Dental bonding or porcelain veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth for a more uniform appearance.

4. Chipped or cracked teeth: These imperfections can be corrected with dental bonding or porcelain veneers for a strong and natural-looking result.

5. Missing Teeth: A combination of dental implants, bridges, or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of your smile.

6. Gummy smile: Excess gum tissue can be contoured or removed through a procedure called gum reshaping to reveal more of your natural teeth and improve the overall balance of your smile.

In addition to these common concerns, a smile makeover can also address other issues, such as uneven gum lines, worn-down teeth, and an unbalanced bite.

Below are some common scenarios that may constitute a dental emergency:

  1. Severe Tooth Pain: If you experience sudden and intense tooth pain, it could be a sign of an underlying issue such as an infected or abscessed tooth. This type of pain usually does not go away on its own and requires immediate treatment from a dentist.
  2. Broken or Chipped Tooth: A broken or chipped tooth can happen due to accidents while playing sports, biting into something hard, or even during normal daily activities. If the break is large enough, it can cause sharp edges that may cut your tongue or cheeks.
  3. Knocked-Out Tooth: Whether it's due to a fall, sports injury, or accident, having a permanent tooth knocked out is considered an emergency and requires prompt attention from a dentist. The chances of saving the tooth are higher if you seek treatment within 30 minutes of the injury.
  4. Loose Tooth: A loose permanent tooth in adults can indicate significant damage to the surrounding tissues and requires immediate evaluation by a dentist.
  5. Lost Filling/Crown: Losing a filling or crown may not seem like an urgent matter at first glance, but it leaves the affected area vulnerable to bacteria, which can cause further damage. It is essential to get it replaced as soon as possible.
  6. Abscessed Tooth: An abscessed tooth is a severe infection that can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. Symptoms include severe tooth pain, swollen gums, and fever.
  7. Bleeding Gums: Bleeding gums may be a sign of gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. If you experience persistent bleeding when brushing or flossing, it's important to see a dentist right away.
  8. Broken Jaw: A broken jaw is a serious dental emergency that requires immediate medical attention. If you suspect your jaw is broken, go to the emergency room or call 911 immediately.
  9. Severe Swelling in the Face or Mouth: Swelling in the face or mouth can be a sign of an infection or other serious issues, such as an impacted wisdom tooth. Seek emergency dental care if you experience sudden and significant swelling in these areas.
  10. Uncontrollable Bleeding After Dental Surgery: While some bleeding after dental surgery is normal, excessive bleeding that does not stop with pressure should be addressed immediately by your dentist.

What our patients are saying...

"Had the best experience with Kasey, my dental hygienists. She was so sweet and had the best calming manner about her. Always checking in to see if I was ok."

"It is easy to recommend ToothDocs Dental. Recommended to me by a trusted friend, I saw ToothDocs after a years-long gap in dental visits. The fear I had when I arrived for my first appointment was replaced with confidence by the time I left, thanks to Dr. Kauftheil's calm demeanor and dental staff kind welcome and assurances that my dental issues were surmountable. Team has gone above and beyond with my treatment. They cared about my progress, was meticulous about the correct placement of each tooth, and even made additional improvements beyond the original end date. A real talent! Bonus: the front office team is knowledgeable AND nice! ToothDocs is wonderful in every way. This is the best dentist!"

"Very friendly and honest about your health. High quality treatment"

"The entire team at toothdocs are super sweet, supportive, knowledgeable and efficient! Shoutout to Fabby and Jennifer for taking care of us and coordinating our appointments :) Dr. Lee took great care of me when it came to my deep cleaning and made sure to be as gentle as possible, given that my teeth are sensitive (plus I haven’t been to the dentist in such a long time - I was quite nervous LOL) but all is good. He’s a wonderful and skilled dentist - definitely book a visit with him! My mother and husband also go here and we are all happy with the services. They recently relocated to Rockefeller center, which is much smaller yet still a lovely location. Highly recommend this team and thanks so much for taking care of us!! :)"

"Doctor Lee is the best doctor , very professional and everything that you look in a dentist!! Please don’t overthink just make an appointment with him and you will corroborate what I am saying !!"
