You have questions, we have answers!

We get these a lot ;)

  • I brush my teeth twice a day and I floss before bed, do I still need to see a hygienist for a cleaning?
    Yes, even with diligent oral hygiene habits at home, it is still necessary to see a hygienist for regular cleanings. While brushing and flossing are crucial for maintaining oral health, they may not effectively remove all plaque and tartar buildup. A professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove these hard-to-reach deposits, reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Additionally, a hygienist can also provide personalized recommendations for oral care based on your individual needs, further supporting your dental health. At Toothbooth, our dedicated team of hygienists is committed to helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile through expert cleanings and personalized care.
  • I have a toothache right now, what do I do?
    If you are experiencing a toothache, it is important to seek immediate dental care. At Toothbooth, we understand the urgency of dental emergencies and strive to provide prompt assistance. We recommend calling our office as soon as possible, and we will do our best to fit you in for an emergency exam. Depending on the severity of the situation, we may be able to provide antibiotics or perform a quick procedure to alleviate the pain. If the toothache occurs outside of our regular business hours, our voicemail message includes an emergency contact number. Please call the emergency line, and we will promptly return your call to address your dental emergency. Your oral health is our top priority, and we are dedicated to providing timely and compassionate care for all our patients.
  • Do I really need to go to the dentist every 6 months?
    Yes, it is generally recommended to visit the dentist every 6 months for a routine dental check-up and cleaning. This regular schedule allows the dentist to monitor your oral health, identify any potential issues early on, and provide preventive care to maintain a healthy smile. At Toothbooth, our experienced dental professionals use these regular appointments to assess your overall oral health, clean hard-to-reach areas, and address any concerns or questions you may have about your teeth and gums. By keeping up with regular dental appointments, you can prevent serious dental problems and potentially save time and money in the long run. Plus, maintaining good oral health contributes to your overall well-being.
  • At what age should my child see the dentist?
    At Toothbooth, we believe in proactive oral care for children. We recommend that children have their first dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. This early visit allows our team to assess your child's oral health, provide essential guidance for oral hygiene practices, and address any questions or concerns you may have as a parent. By establishing a positive relationship with the dentist at an early age, your child can develop good oral health habits and feel comfortable with dental visits in the future. Our friendly and experienced team will ensure that your child's first dental visit is a stress-free and educational experience.

  • What causes cavities?
    Cavities, also known as tooth decay, are caused by a combination of factors that include bacteria in the mouth, frequent consumption of sugary or acidic foods and beverages, poor oral hygiene, and a lack of fluoride. When bacteria in the mouth feed on sugars and starches, they produce acid that can erode tooth enamel. Over time, this can lead to the development of cavities. At Toothbooth, we encourage regular dental check-ups, proper oral hygiene, and a balanced diet to prevent cavities. Our services extend to preventive treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride applications to protect and strengthen teeth. We also emphasize patient education and personalized oral care plans to address specific risk factors for cavities.
