Questions and Answers to Know
Are baby teeth important
Yes. While baby teeth will fallout, they’re integral in chewing, helping children learn to speak and also forming a natural path for adult growth.
What do I do if my child has a toothache?
Rinse the area with salt water and apply a cold compress to the area. Acetaminophen can be given to alleviate pain while you wait for your dentist appointment.
How do dental sealants work?
A dentist or certified dental assistant fills in the crevasses in your teeth to stop particles from getting caught in your teeth. Sealants last years, and it’s a fast and painless process.
Is my child getting enough fluoride?
If your child’s old enough to use a Fluoridated toothpaste that’s normally the most a child will need for Fluoride
How do I protect my teeth when playing sports?
Custom-fitted mouth guards offer the best protection from teeth and head injuries. Soft-plastic mouth guards can also be used to limit sports-related injuries to your cheeks, lips, gums and teeth. For patients with Invisalign we still recommend custom oral mouthguards.
Are dental X-rays safe?
We understand your concern about X-ray safety. We're careful to limit the amount of radiation you’re exposed to and we take safety to the next level with lead aprons and digital x-rays, which produce up to 90% less radiation.
Is Botox used for just cosmetic purposes?
While is used often for cosmetic purposes Dr. Sidhu also specializes in using Botox for headaches, jaw pain, temporomandibular disorder (TMD), bruxism, clenching, and masseter hypertrophy. It can also be used to treat functional issues or esthetic facial concerns like deep nasolabial folds, radial lip lines, high lip lines and black triangles between teeth.
Common Terms to Know Before Going to Your Langley Dentists Office
We use a lot of dental terms to explain certain dentistry-related issues, and while we’re going to cover many of the terms below, feel free to ask your favourite Langley dentists office about any terms not covered or other home patient information questions. A few of the terms you may hear from our team are:
- Dentist. A dentist is a specialist who works in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all oral cavity diseases and conditions. A dentist is also known as a dental surgeon.
- Dental Caries. Lack of proper care leaves plaque on your teeth and can lead to cavity formation. The term “dental caries” is the same as a cavity.
- Dental Prophylaxis. If you need to stop the spread or growth of gingivitis and periodontal disease, a thorough cleaning is performed - a "dental prophylaxis".
- Invisalign. Clear tray aligner treatment used to straighten your teeth
- Pregnancy Gingivitis. Changes in hormones during pregnancy lead to an increase in gums swelling, irritability, sensitivity and blood flow to gum tissue, leading to pregnancy gingivitis.
