Dental health differs from client to client. Those undergoing dental procedures such as orthodontic treatments might have to visit the dentist more than those who are not. However, as a general rule of thumb, adults should visit the dentist for a checkup at least once a year.
While some dental problems might be inevitable, some steps you can take to maintain good oral health are:
Our Invisalign® treatment is ideal for both teenagers and adults. We recommend scheduling an inspection with us to better understand whether you will benefit from this treatment.
No. One of the primary reasons for the popularity of this treatment is how comfortable it is while being effective. You might feel some mild discomfort, but it will fade away within a few days.
Generally, Invisalign® treatment requires one year for the results to show. However, the duration of your treatment will depend entirely on your requirements.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® braces are made from BPA-free plastic, which makes them more comfortable than the former.
Generally, most people barely notice their Invisalign® aligners once they start using them. You can remove them to eat, brush, and floss your teeth. While you might have to visit the dentist more often than usual, undergoing Invisalign® won’t impact your daily life. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why people prefer this treatment.
No dental treatment is suitable for every client. Everyone has unique dental concerns, which require personalized approaches. Before recommending Invisalign® treatment, we will conduct a thorough assessment, including taking X-rays, to ensure this treatment is ideal for you.

Brush at least twice a day. If you can, brush after every meal. Brushing removes plaque. Plaque is a film of bacteria that clings to teeth. When bacteria in plaque comes into contact with food, they produce acids. These acids lead to cavities.
Floss at least once a day. Flossing gets rid of food and plaque between the teeth that your toothbrush cannot reach. If plaque stays between teeth, it can harden into tartar, which a dentist must remove.
You should visit the dentist usually twice a year. To maintain healthy teeth and gums, it’s essential to have regular checkups and professional teeth cleanings. You should also see your dentist if you experience pain in your teeth or mouth or bleeding swollen gums.
Plaque is a sticky, colourless deposit of bacteria constantly forming on teeth. Saliva, food and fluids combine to produce these deposits that collect on teeth and where teeth and gums meet.
Plaque build-up is the primary factor in periodontal (gum) disease. Fighting plaque is a lifelong component of oral care.
Plaque begins forming on teeth 4 to 12 hours after brushing, so it is essential to brush at least twice daily and floss daily.
A root canal, or endodontic treatment, is a common and safe procedure to treat an infection in the tooth’s pulp. Years ago, damaged and diseased teeth were removed. The advent of modern dental techniques has enabled dentists to save and repair damaged teeth through root canal treatment.
Infected teeth that are not extracted or repaired will be a source of infection, contaminating the body and weakening the immune system. Because damaged teeth do not heal on their own, as they get worse, they will continue to damage bone and be the source of extreme pain.
A healthy, balanced diet is crucial to caring for your teeth. A nourishing, low-sugar diet is the first prerequisite for healthy teeth.
