- How often do adults need to visit the dentist?
Visiting the dentist twice a year has become the norm. The benefit of regular dental checkups is to prevent problems. Catching dental issues and treating them at an early stage is more manageable and can save money. Visiting the dentist every six months is a good recommendation; however, people with good oral health who are low risk for cavities or gum disease may be able to go annually. While those with a higher risk for dental disease may want to see their dentist every three to four months.
- Do adult dental patients get cavities?
Yes, adults can get cavities. However, adults are generally more conscientious about brushing, flossing and limiting sweets in their diets, which can help prevent cavities. Adult teeth are also not as soft as baby teeth.
- I had braces as a kid but my teeth are crooked again, can I get braces again?
Of course! Teeth can shift with age, so it isn’t unusual to need braces again as an adult. Braces have come a long way since you were a kid. The Super Dentists use the newest technologies to straighten teeth including Invisalign, Incognito and our exclusive and proprietary AADvance Braces. Plus, by combining an FDA-cleared accelerator with your braces, your teeth can be straightened in less time. The Super Dentists’ proprietary Acceledontics program straightens teeth in months instead of years and includes a whitening treatment after teeth are straight for the perfect smile.
- Am I too old for braces?
There is no age limit for braces, as long as your teeth, gums and jaw are healthy. Whether you had braces in the past, or you’ve decided that now is the time to perfect your smile, our orthodontists can help. If you want your teeth straightened, The Super Dentists can advise you and create a treatment plan.
- Which type of braces is best for adults?
Generally, any type of braces may be used for adults. Specifically, you will need to meet with The Super Dentists orthodontist to determine the best type of braces for you. Nowadays more adults are getting braces, so The Super Dentists created the Acceledontics orthodontic package. Acceledontics is a proprietary 5-step program including our exclusive AADvance Braces and AADvance Whitening. The Super Dentists will advise you on our comprehensive options for adult braces.
- Do adults need to wear a retainer after braces?
While technologies for braces have changed, some things have remained the same. Yes, you will need a retainer to keep your teeth in place once the braces have done their job.
- Is fluoride important for adult teeth?
Research has shown that fluoride disrupts acid production and is important for fighting tooth decay in adult teeth. Many adults drink fluoridated water or use dental products such as toothpaste or mouthwash with fluoride, which is sufficient. Your dentist will let you know if your teeth need additional fluoride treatment.
- I still have my wisdom teeth, should I have them removed?
If your wisdom teeth are not causing pain and they are correctly positioned in your mouth, then you will likely not have to have your wisdom teeth extracted. Although, if you are feeling pain or suspect your wisdom teeth are problematic, The Super Dentists can check them and let you know if your wisdom teeth are okay or need to be removed.
- How can The Super Dentists help my TMJ / TMD?
TMJ is an acronym for the temporomandibular joint. When this joint along with surrounding muscles that control jaw movement cause pain, it may be a sign of a temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD. The Super Dentists will be able to determine if you do have TMJ / TMD. Depending on your diagnosis, you may be prescribed a pain medication or an oral appliance to see if the pain dissipates. For chronic cases where the pain and other symptoms persist, The Super Dentists will discuss orthodontic options including surgical procedures. The first step is to find out if you do have TMJ / TMD. After evaluation, The Super Dentists can recommend a treatment plan.
- What are some problems that adults have with their mouth?
As we age, the enamel on our teeth begins to wear down from use. If you are concerned about this, ask The Super Dentists about restorative dentistry. You will also want to keep your gums healthy to avoid disease. If gum disease isn’t treated, it can harm your bones. Another issue that can affect adults is dry mouth. Make sure you stay hydrated, as dry mouth can lead to tooth decay. The best way to keep your mouth healthy is to follow good dental habits and visit The Super Dentists regularly.
- Is it safe to whiten teeth?
Research has shown that it is indeed safe to whiten teeth. The Super Dentists uses several safe and effective teeth whitening technologies including LaserSmile and ezlase laser whitening, along with Zoom! teeth bleaching. The Super Dentists have also created our exclusive AADvance Whitening that you can get only at our offices. Ask The Super Dentists which teeth whitening method will work best to improve your smile.
- When should I whiten my teeth?
You can whiten your teeth before a special event such as a wedding or class reunion, or anytime you want a bright and confident smile. As we age, teeth can yellow. Whitening teeth can provide a younger appearance. If you have teeth sensitivity from whitening, you may want to wait a little longer between teeth whitening treatments. Most teeth whitening techniques will keep your smile bright for six months to a year.
- How can I prevent gum disease?
Practicing good oral hygiene goes a long way to help prevent gum disease, also called periodontal disease. Daily habits including brushing teeth including along the gum line, flossing and using mouthwash, as well as eating a healthy diet and visiting The Super Dentists regularly will go a long way to keep your gums healthy.
- If I have gum disease, how can The Super Dentists help me?
Early stage gum disease is treated using non-surgical procedures. Deep cleaning under the gum line, called scaling and root planning, is performed to remove plaque and tarter that a regular cleaning cannot reach. If gum disease is more advanced, surgery may be required. It is important to treat gum disease so that it does not weaken bones, which can lead to tooth loss.
- What kind of toothpaste does The Super Dentists recommend for adults?
There are many toothpaste options. Depending on your particular needs, you can find a brand that will work best for you. With the popularity of bottled water, fluoride toothpaste is recommended to help fight cavities. The other beneficial health qualities you’ll find in toothpastes include whitening, sensitivity, tartar protection, enamel strengthening and plaque fighting. Some toothpaste brands have several benefits in one tube. Choose a paste or gel with the American Dental Association (ADA) seal. The ADA seal ensures that the claims made by the manufacturer are true. Remember, the only way you can get the full benefit of whichever toothpaste you choose is to brush for two minutes at least twice a day.
- Does The Super Dentists recommend a specific type of dental floss?
Flossing should be performed at least once a day, but ideally every time you brush. Flossing reaches plaque and food particles that linger under the gum line and are not reached by brushing. You can also help prevent plaque buildup and gum disease. Unwaxed floss is recommended for people with teeth that are closer together. Waxed floss isn’t as easy to use if there is a tight fit between teeth, but it has less likelihood of breaking than unwaxed floss. A dental floss holder, a small plastic tool with a handle that has floss at the end, is an option for those who have trouble holding floss or reaching in their mouth. The Super Dentists encourages parents to teach their children to floss at a young age. Parents should floss as a good example for their children and to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Ask your dentists for a refresher course in flossing and if there is a specific floss that will work best for you.
- Does The Super Dentists recommend using mouthwash?
Most people believe that mouthwash is just to prevent bad breath, but studies have shown there are other benefits to rinsing with mouthwash. Before using mouthwash to cover bad breath, make sure that you don’t have dental issues that are causing bad breath. A visit to The Super Dentists will let you know if your teeth and gums are healthy. Mouthwash has been shown to help prevent plaque buildup and reduce the chances of getting cavity. Check labels for brands that have the American Dental Association (ADA) seal so that you know the claims made on the package have been confirmed. Ask The Super Dentists if you would benefit from a mouthwash that contains fluoride, fights bacteria, has whitening or reduces sensitivity. With your dentist, you can find the best brand for your needs. Keep in mind that mouthwash alone cannot provide oral health benefits. Rinsing with mouthwash needs to be performed along with brushing and flossing to get the positive effects.
