If you’re trying to find out how often you should see a dentist, the general consensus is typically every six months. It is recommended that you visit your dentist on a regular basis and as a rule of thumb, don’t wait until your teeth hurt to see the dentist!

We don’t want to scare you, but by the time you start experiencing a toothache, there might already be a serious underlying issue. So if it’s been a little while since your last checkup, do yourself and your teeth a favour and book an appointment with your local dentist today.

Get Proactive With Your Oral Health

Proactive care is more often than not a much better way to prevent health concerns. The same goes for your teeth!

  • Brush twice a day
  • Don’t forget to lightly brush your tongue
  • Floss daily
  • Use mouthwash
  • Don’t smoke
  • Invoke a healthier diet rich in vitamins and
  • Visit the dentist twice a year

These simple steps will help to prevent tooth decay and other tooth and gum-related diseases so that your oral hygiene is tip-top.

Dental Health Concerns That Come With Not Looking After Your Teeth

Here are some oral concerns that dentists regularly see – and help to treat and prevent:

  • Tooth decay
  • Wisdom teeth growth
  • Gum disease
  • Cavities
  • Root canals

If not prevented or treated with proper guidance from an experienced dentist, these concerns can become uncomfortable and painful. That’s why proactive care is essential for healthy teeth, gums and smiles.

Of course, we understand that some of these dental concerns can happen even when people have been kind to their oral hygiene.

Dakabin Dental are experts in smile makeovers and smile transformations and offer free consultations for those looking to boost their confidence with a healthy-looking smile.

Why Are My Teeth Hurting?

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, we recommend booking an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Although it may be nothing of concern, it’s best to have a checkup to rule out any issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

There’s no need to be alarmed, there are multiple reasons why your teeth might suddenly feel more sensitive than usual including:

  • Age – Developing sensitive teeth over time is a natural ageing process. You might need to switch your regular toothpaste for desensitising toothpaste.
  • Exposing your teeth to extremely hot or cold food and beverages
  • Your at-home whitening kit is damaging your gums
  • You’re over-brushing or brushing too hard
  • Acid reflux
  • Medications
  • The mouthwash you use is too harsh
  • Grinding your teeth – possibly in your sleep
  • Loose fillings

These are all common toothache and tooth sensitivity concerns that can easily be treated.

See The Dentist Twice a Year

Seeing the dentist bi-annually ensures that any problems with teeth and gums are caught early on and can be treated before they become more serious issues.

Maintaining good oral health is more important than ever and Dakabin Dental provides the resources and tools to make it easy. Good oral hygiene can help prevent dental concerns like gum disease, tooth decay and even bad breath. As 2023 rolls in and we all get a year older, it’s important to understand that good oral and dental care can help us keep our teeth healthy and intact. Although Dakabin Dental has a fantastic smile makeover solution for those in need, there are many ways you can prevent tooth decay and gum disease now and in the future. Dakabin Dental’s guide to clean and healthy teeth offers simple steps that will help you achieve and maintain good oral health.

A Dentists Guide on How To Keep Your Teeth Clean and Healthy

Brushing your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste is the first step in maintaining good oral hygiene. Use gentle circular motions and brush for two minutes at least. Particularly focusing on areas where plaque tends to build up such as the backs of molars and around the gum line.

Flossing regularly should also be part of your routine. It helps remove plaque from between teeth, which can’t be reached by brushing alone. It also reduces inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria buildup.

Use Dakabin Dental’s helpful tips to ensure you are brushing and flossing effectively:

  1. Use an electric toothbrush – it makes brushing more efficient and effective, removing plaque in hard-to-reach places.
  2. Be sure to change your toothbrush every three months as they can harbour bacteria over time.
  3. Take your time when flossing – use slow and steady movements to make sure plaque is removed from each tooth’s surface.
  4. Use Mouthwash – Rinse your mouth with an alcohol-free mouthwash to help reduce bacteria and bad breath. Dakabin Dental recommends using a therapeutic mouthwash.
  5. Avoid Sugary Foods and Drinks – Eating sugary foods such as candy or drinking sodas can increase your risk of cavities and tooth decay. So it’s best to limit sugary snacks and drinks as much as possible.

In addition to brushing and flossing, Dakabin Dental recommends visiting your dentist regularly. You dentist can perform professional cleanings, checkups, and other preventive treatments. This can help maintain your oral health and identify problems early on before they become more serious. Professional cleanings will help keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come by strengthening your teeth and gums and detecting any oral health issues early on.

When Was the Last Time You Went For a Regular Dentist Checkup?

To maintain clean and healthy teeth it is recommended that you visit a dentist at least every 6 months for a regular checkup. Depending on the health of your teeth and gums you may be required to visit more frequently. Or, if your oral health is in great condition, even less frequently. But you won’t know until an experienced dentist has had a good look inside your mouth!

People who visit the dentist less often require more extensive work and in some cases, need a complete smile makeover. Luckily we do smile makeover consultations for free at Dakabin dental!

By following Dakabin Dental’s guide to having clean and healthy teeth, you can maintain good oral health and achieve a beautiful smile. Dakabin Dental is here to help you every step of the way.

Your first trip to the dentist can be an exciting and frightening experience (depending on the movies you’ve watched!), and one that may even define a lifetime of dental care.

We understand that first trips to the dentist can be daunting for kids and their parents alike. That’s why we created this article as a comprehensive guide to first dental visits.

We will cover topics ranging from what you should expect when taking your child to the dentist, tips on how to prepare them mentally and emotionally, and helpful advice on maintaining healthy dental habits.

When To Book Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

Most first-time dental visits are scheduled around age three or four, though it is recommended that you take your child in for checkups as soon as possible after their first tooth appears.

During these initial checkup appointments, our dentists focus on a thorough examination of your child’s teeth and gums. They will check for any signs of cavities, decay, or other dental issues that need attention.

The trained dental team at Dakabin Dental understand that some children may not be so keen on their first trip to the dentist. We have a very welcoming approach for children visiting for the first time and endeavour to make them feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

How to Prepare Your Child for Their First Dental Visit

It is important to prepare your child mentally before the first visit. Let them know that going to the dentist is an important part of keeping their teeth healthy and strong. Explain to them that they can expect gentle brushing and counting of their teeth.

Additionally, make sure you let them know that our dentists are here to help keep their mouths clean and healthy – not to hurt them in any way! We love seeing big happy smiles on our younger patients and we want to keep it that way.

What You Can Do At Home to Prepare Your Children for the Dentist

To ensure a successful first trip to the dentist, we recommend establishing good oral hygiene habits at home first.

Here are a few minor habits you can do at home before bringing your kids to the dentist for the first time:

  • Ensure children brush twice daily for two minutes each
  • Encourage kids to eat healthy foods.

If you can make dental care a part of your child’s routine at home first, they will be more comfortable visiting the dentist.

Book With Dakabin

At our office, we strive to make first dental trips as stress-free as possible! We provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere that will put both you and your kids at ease. Our dentists are highly experienced in working with children and understand the unique needs of their patients.

Unfortunately, some children have weak teeth and gums and are prone to tooth decay. Dakabin Dental offers complete smile makeovers for both adults and children. Hopefully, with the right dental care and maintenance from a young age, together we can avoid this in your child’s future!
