What Is Family Dentistry, And What Services Does It Include?

How Frequently Should I Visit The Dentist?

According to the Canadian Dental Association recommendation, you should visit your dentist at least once every six months. During these routine visits at Richmond Dental Care, our dentist will perform an extensive checkup of your oral health to detect any early signs of damage to your teeth or gums. These visits protect your oral health and keep dental problems at bay.

What Should I Expect During A Dental Exam And Cleaning?

A dental exam and cleaning are routine dental procedures at Richmond Dental Care. Our dentist will review your medical records during these exams and examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for signs of decay, gum disease, or other issues. The cleaning involves removing the plaque and tartar from the enamel of your teeth and the surface of your gums. We ensure that it is a comfortable and pain-free experience for you.

How Do Teeth Whitening Treatments Work, And What Are The Options Available?

Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic procedure that removes the surface stains from the enamel of your teeth using a bleaching agent like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The bleaching agents break down the stains, resulting in a brighter and whiter smile. Richmond Dental Care offers both in-office and take-home dental whitening kits. Please schedule an appointment with our dentist to see which treatment option is the best for you.

How To Take Care Of Teeth After The Teeth Whitening Treatment?

If you want the results of your teeth whitening treatment to last long, you should take precautions and good care of your oral health. Here are a few easy and useful tips that can help you keep your smile brighter-

  • Avoid foods and drinks like red wine and coffee that might stain your teeth.
  • Maintain a good oral hygiene
  • Avoid smoking
  • Visit your dentist regularly

What Should I Do In The Case Of A Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies require immediate medical care, especially if you are bleeding or have lost a tooth. Contact Richmond Dental Care immediately; we can advise you on what to do and schedule an appointment. If you have pain and swelling, apply a cold compress and take OTC pain medication like ibuprofen to handle the pain. If you have knocked your tooth, find it and rinse it with water avoiding touching the root.

What Cosmetic Dentistry Options Do You Offer?

Cosmetic dentistry can improve aesthetics and transform your smile. At Richmond Dental Care, we offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures to correct flaws in your smile. We provide the following treatment options-

  • Dental bonding, implants, veneers, bridges, and crowns
  • Invisalign clear braces
  • Partial and full dentures
  • Cosmetic dental whitening

How Does Long Take For A Tooth Extraction To Heal?

While tooth extraction is a last resort for dental problems, it is necessary to perform in some circumstances. Once our dentist extracts your tooth, the healing process can take a few weeks to heal. It is normal to experience some bleeding and discomfort during the first 24 hours. However, it should subside within two days, and the healing is completed at the end of the second week.

How Do You Handle Patients With Dental Anxiety Or Phobia?

You are not alone if you have dental anxiety or a phobia of visiting a dentist. At Richmond Dental Care, we aim to provide our patients with a comfortable and stress-free dental experience. We also offer several types of sedation, including nitrous oxide and oral and intravenous sedation. Please visit our dental office to learn more about what sedation techniques are best for you.
