Dental FAQsEveryone has a question or two about their dental health. Hence, we at Midtown Dental Centre listed common questions that can help you. In this manner, you can rely on us to be your oral care provider to your varying dental needs.

Is brushing enough to clean my teeth?
Brushing alone is not sufficient to remove bacteria and food particles that get stuck in between your teeth. Flossing is another essential oral care habit that you need to practice every day. Aside from this, always visit your dentist regularly for a professional teeth cleaning. Ideally, we can perform this procedure twice in a year.

Why do I feel sudden tooth pain when I sip on cold drinks?
You must have a sensitive tooth, and our dental team will look into what’s causing this problem. Schedule a checkup as soon as you can in order for us to address the root cause of this oral problem.

Does my child need dental sealants?
Your child’s teeth are prone to dental cavities; hence, our pediatric dentist strongly recommends the application of dental sealants. Surely, you don’t want your child to suffer from dental pain.

Which is better, Invisalign or traditional braces?
The type of dental appliance we use for your orthodontic treatment depends on the severity of your malocclusion, teeth alignment or gaps. In most cases, we recommend Invisalign for mild cases while we use traditional braces for teeth that need intensive treatment.

How do I know if I have gum disease?
If you notice that your gums are swollen and they bleed when you’re brushing, these are signs of gum disease. Please contact our dental staff right away so they can set an appointment for your dental checkup and cleaning. After our examination, we will determine the best course of action to resolve your oral problem.
