How can I take care of my teeth between dental checkups?

  • Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once daily.
  • Use toothpaste containing fluoride and consider asking your dentist about fluoride rinses to prevent cavities.
  • Avoid consuming foods high in sugar, as they increase the growth of bacteria in your mouth, leading to plaque buildup and potential cavities. Additionally, steer clear of
  • tobacco products, which can stain your teeth, contribute to gum disease, and increase the risk of oral cancer.
  • You can also brush your tongue to remove food particles and reduce plaque-causing bacteria, which also helps maintain fresh breath.
  • Schedule routine checkups with your dentist to ensure optimal oral health.

How often should I see the dentist?

  • Children, teens, and adults must visit the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Regular visits enable you and your dentist to maintain dental hygiene and implement preventive measures, reducing the need for costly dental procedures in the future.
  • At Gulati Dental & Associates, we conduct comprehensive dental exams to promote healthy and clean teeth, ensuring a bright smile. Our team will work with you to improve oral hygiene practices and address any dental concerns or issues you may have.
  • If it has been more than six months since your last dental appointment, we encourage you to schedule one now to maintain optimal oral health.

At what age should I start taking my child to see the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children first see a dentist as early as six months of age and no later than one year of age. During this time, your child’s baby teeth will be coming in and your dentist can examine the health of your child’s first few teeth. After the first visit, be sure to schedule regular checkups every six months.
