Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

In addition to taking care of your teeth, our team is also happy to answer any questions you might have about dentistry so you and your loved ones can enjoy healthy smiles for many years to come. In our experience, the more a patient knows about oral health, the more empowered they are to maintain sound, functional teeth and gums. That is why we have compiled answers to some frequently asked dentistry questions below. Be sure to give us a call if you would like to know anything else — we are always eager to talk to our valued patients and potential patients.

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

The standard recommendation is that all adults and children visit the dentist once every six months or so. These regular appointments enable us to identify and treat most oral health problems before they become severe. Some individuals with ongoing oral health concerns may need more frequent dental visits.

How Can I Take Good Care of My Teeth on a Daily Basis?

You should thoroughly brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, and you should floss once a day. Try to avoid sugary, acidic foods, and avoid using your teeth as a tool to open packages or trim your fingernails.

What if I Have a Dental Emergency When I Am Out of Town?

Call our dental office and describe the situation. We will provide you with advice on what to do next. We might recommend that you visit a dental office that is close to you, or that you perform basic first-aid for yourself until you can come back to Woodbridge and see our team.

Do You Accept My Dental Insurance?

We accept payment from any PPO dental insurance plan, even from plans whose network we are not in. If you would like to learn how we can help you maximize your dental benefits, give us a call.

Will You Accept My Child as a Patient?

We welcome patients of all ages, and we have a special place in our hearts for young ones. We offer a broad range of services designed to help children establish the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth, including checkups, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and more.

I Have Severe Oral Health Problems. Can You Help Me?

Yes! We have a team of general dentists and specialists at New Haven Dental Group who work together to handle even the most complex cases, whether they are related to periodontal disease, missing teeth, or other significant dental issues. We rarely need to refer patients to outside dental offices.
