How Often Should I See A Dentist?

    This is a question that is often asked.  The truth is there is no right answer.  The American Dental Association recommends at least twice a year.  So what is the point of going to the dentist if you already brush your teeth and floss regularly?

    No matter how well you take care of your teeth at home there are very good reasons to get yourself to a dentist.  Your dentist has tools to clean plaque away that your electric toothbrush just can’t clean.  That extra plaque you can’t remove can lead to bacterial buildup which can cause gum disease and tooth decay.  Your dentist also can examine you for oral health problems such as cavities and early stage gum disease.  The treatments for these problems are much easier and more effective when detected early.  Do not wait to find out!

   Ultimately how often you go to the dentist has a lot to do with the health of your gums.  If your gums are healthy and there is no tooth decay you could go every 9 or 12 months.  Some people will go based on their dental insurance coverage.  Brighton Family Dental recommends you go as often as needed based on your health.  There are people who should be at a dentist 3 to 4 times a year.

   Still unsure how often you should go?  Call Brighton Family Dental in the Buffalo, NY area today at (716) 836-4590 for a dental checkup and ask a dentist to assist you in planning the best time to schedule your next follow up visit.

Looking for Affordable Teeth Whitening in Buffalo, NY?

    At Brighton Family Dental we recommend and carry Crest Whitestrips Professional Strength.  These are the strongest, most effective Crest whitening product and allow patients to apply the strips themselves saving time and money.

   How do they work?  The strips contain 14% hydrogen peroxide which is the same active ingredient used at professional bleachings carried out in a dentist office.  The higher percent of hydrogen peroxide than what you can get off the shelf in a supermarket allows for more dramatic teeth whitening and a brighter smile

   Will these work for me at home?

     Patients who will have the most success with this in home teeth whitening treatment are those who have yellowish stains on their teeth.  If the stains are from tetracycline and are grey-brownish we recommend a few in office whitening sessions before using these strips.  
For the money and time saved Brighton Family Dental highly recommends patients looking to whiten their teeth economically at home use this product.  To order give us a call at (716) 836-4590 or just stop by our office conveniently located off the 290 highway near the Colvin Exit to pick up some for yourself today!
