FAQ

How often should I visit my dentist?

Ideally, you should visit your dentist every six months for professional cleaning and a proper oral exam. Your dental hygienist or dentist can easily polish away surface stains when cleaning your teeth, helping to fight discolouration without using bleaching products again.

When should my child first visit the dentist?

As a general rule of thumb, parents should bring their child to see a dentist shortly after they begin to develop their first teeth.


While it may seem like a hassle to bring a very young child in for dental checkups and cleaning, it is important to get them started early so that they not only become accustomed to proper oral care by a young age but so the dentist can spot any potential issues as early as possible. This is an important step in ensuring healthy habits as they continue to grow up. Learn more.

What causes bad breath?

The most common cause of bad breath is a medical condition known as halitosis, which results from bad oral hygiene or unhealthy lifestyle choices like smoking or chewing tobacco. However, there are dozens of other factors that can lead to a foul smell throughout the day. Learn more. 

Can health conditions affect dental implants?

Perhaps you’ve read about dental implants and are wondering if they’re the right option for you. Dental implants are one of the more important advances in dental history. They are an effective way to replace missing teeth without damaging your mouth. There are some caveats to consider when it comes to dental implants. Your general health always plays a factor when having dental work done, no matter what the procedure is. Learn more. 

What can I do if my crown cracked?

A broken crown qualifies as a dental emergency, so the first thing you should do after noticing something is wrong is immediately call your dentist. Aside from potentially being painful, the risk of developing a bacterial infection goes up the longer you wait to have the crown repaired. Learn more. 

What are the differences between a root canal and a cavity?

In simple terms, a root canal procedure is required when a cavity has been left untreated too long. Cavity fillings are used to fill small holes in teeth in cases where the nerve has not yet been damaged or affected by the cavity. This treatment only takes one visit to your dentist and is rarely painful thanks to freezing. Learn more. 

How does invisalign work?


Invisalign is a modern approach to the issue that uses a custom-fabricated set of invisible aligners in order to gently and slowly correct the alignment of teeth.


Worn over the teeth, these aligners are made of a comfortable and virtually invisible smooth plastic which gradually guides the teeth into position. Learn more.
