Frequently Asked Questions

These FAQs are for general research only. Dental health is very specific to each patient, so we’d love to talk you through any decision you’re making with the right facts for you. Call or e-mail us today, and let’s get started.

General

What can I do to care for my teeth day-to-day?

There are a few things anyone can do at home to make their time in our chairs easier and faster — and you’ve probably heard them before!

  1. Brush, twice a day, for at least two minutes. Your toothbrush should be soft-bristled and should be replaced every three months. If you’re wearing through toothbrushes quickly, you’re likely brushing too hard — teeth and gums are living, so be gentle! You should also replace your toothbrush if you’ve had a cold or illness, as your brush will harbour those bacteria.
  2. Floss. The spaces between teeth take up about a third of the surface area in your mouth — so even though flossing can be tedious, it’s a must. If you have wide spaces between your teeth, consider an interdental pick or proximity brush, available with the floss at most drugstores.  Flossing every 24 hours is recommended.
  3. Technique. These steps are simple, but important — ask us for pointers at your next checkup!

When should I schedule an appointment?

Children: The Canadian Dental Association recommends you bring your child in within six months of his or her first tooth becoming visible. Your dentist will be able to tell you how often to visit after assessing your child. At Fairlawn, we know it’s important to make dentist visits as stress-free for your child as possible — a gentle approach and friendly staff are some of the ways we encourage great dental health for life.

Adults: Generally, adults need to visit the dentist every six months. This allows us to monitor your whole mouth health, and catch problems before they require extensive repair work. However, you may need to go to the dentist more often if you aren’t taking thorough care of your teeth. Other factors, like sugar and acid in your diet, smoking, your overall health and your dental health history, also play a role. Your Fairlawn dentist will recommend your next visit date at the end of your appointment.

Preventative care: At Fairlawn, preventative medicine is the backbone of our approach. Book an appointment immediately if you notice heightened sensitivity, persistent sore or bleeding gums, or nagging bad breath. Also watch out for sores, red or white gum patches, numbness, tingling, and lumps or thickening of the gums. These can be early signs of oral cancer and other diseases. Most oral problems are reversible if caught early.

What happens in a typical check-up?

Check-ups start with a thorough and professional teeth cleaning. This gives us a clean slate to work on — and your teeth will feel amazing! Your hygienist will also conduct an evaluation, looking for potential problems and following up if we worked on anything at your last visit. You may or may not need an x-ray.

After that, your dentist will be available to examine your teeth and mouth, as well as answer any questions you have and address whatever problems he or she may have noticed. Now is your time to ask whatever questions you have — feel free to bring a list with you! We aim to be comprehensive, knowledgeable partners in the oral health of all our patients, so fire away.

If you’re new to Dentistry at Fairlawn, your exam may take longer than you’re used to. We’re just getting accustomed to you as a patient, and it’s our goal to understand your needs completely, so don’t be alarmed.

What dental products should I be using?

It seems that each year the aisles in drug and grocery stores grow with dental health options. Each brand brings out dozens of new products at every price point, and it can be confusing to identify your own needs in such a wide bevvy of options.

We recommend that you use a soft toothbrush, floss or dental picks, and a thorough approach to cleaning your teeth. Mouthwash can be useful, but it can also be damaging to your delicate oral tissue. It also masks bad breath that can be a symptom of a bigger problem, putting you in the dark.

A common behaviour is the overuse of oral care products. This includes brushing or flossing too hard, using too many abrasive products or obsessively cleaning your teeth. These actions can actually wear down your enamel and put you at risk for sensitivity.

Whitening products specifically can cause issues for sensitive mouths. Even if you don’t generally have sensitive teeth, these products can create or worsen sensitivity, damage dental work and discolour teeth and gums. The directions may also need to be altered to suit your needs.  Please consult with us before starting a new whitening regimen.

I have not been to the dentist in a number of years. What can I expect from a visit?

Dentistry has come a long way in recent years. At Fairlawn, we pride ourselves on professional services in a low-stress environment. Regardless of when your last check-up was, we’ll be able to bring you up to speed.

The results of an exam after an extended hiatus can surprise some patients. People live with serious dental problems for years, as their bodies develop a tolerance for their symptoms, and are often surprised by the results of a thorough check-up. Even if you have minimal tooth pain and brush regularly, lacking a dentist in your oral care routine can let small problems turn into big ones. If you’ve been avoiding the chair because you’re a nervous patient, sedation dentistry might be for you.

I have heard conflicting facts about fluoride exposure for my child (and myself!). What’s true?

Fluoride is an important part of maintaining healthy teeth — you’re exposed to it every day, in tap water and in toothpaste. As you age, it’s recommended you use fluoride toothpaste to maintain strength and density in your teeth. Fluoride has even been shown to reverse damage in adults! Kids can also benefit from fluoride, but the amount they can use depends on their age:

0 – 3 years: Use fluoride toothpaste only if your child is at risk for tooth decay, which we’ll assess when you bring your child in for an appointment. If tooth decay isn’t an issue, you can use an extra-soft toothbrush or even a washcloth, both moistened only with water, to clean your child’s teeth.

3 – 6 years: Use a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste, no more, and assist your child in brushing his or her teeth. Try to ensure your child swallows minimal amounts of toothpaste and brushes for a full two minutes.

6+ years: You can begin to increase the amount of toothpaste used as needed. By this time, your child has learned great dental habits — and goes to regular check-ups — and isn’t as sensitive to fluoride.

What are the risks associated with x-rays?

X-rays have a bad reputation, but recent advances in dental science and x-ray technology have made them safer and faster.

In a typical dental x-ray, the dose of radioactivity you’re introduced to is extremely low. You may have worn a lead vest in previous x-rays — this is a safety precaution, but generally, errant rays are very rare and harmless.

Making x-ray technology faster has also made it safer. Now, with faster-exposing film and more exact camera technology, we can limit the number of shots taken and the amount of time needed to get them. In short, it’s never been safer to get an x-ray.

When to Replace a Filling?

Fillings are never as strong as unfilled teeth, and rarely will fillings last a lifetime. They occasionally need to be replaced, especially if you do not look after your oral hygiene. But how do you know when to replace a filling?

It might be obvious when a filling needs to be replaced, such as when it falls out, but there are many more reasons to replace a filling that you may be unaware of. Fillings may need replacing for a multitude of reasons; tooth decay and physical damage to the mouth are two very common ones. You should have your fillings checked regularly, ensuring you get them replaced when problems are found. Making regular dental appointments is the best way to ensure that you don’t have any underlying problem and that no future problems arise.

Call us at Fairlawn today to see if your fillings need replacing.

Sedation

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives in a routine procedure. Sedation is always offered for more in-depth procedures like root canals or dental surgery, but now the benefits of sedation are available for general visits to Fairlawn.

Sedation dentistry is beneficial to both patients and dentists. By opting for sedation, patients can reduce their stress and have more relaxing visits with almost no recollection of the procedures. This allows the dentist to work more efficiently, and without the risk of movement or gagging.

How common is it?

Seventy percent of patients become anxious at the thought of going to the dentist, and 15% avoid it altogether out of fear. We understand your concerns — some procedures can be nerve-wracking, no matter how good your dentist is. Sedation dentistry is a problem-solving option for patients like these, and is extremely common.

Is it right for me?

Are you generally nervous, fidgety and stressed out in the dentist chair? Do you avoid dentist appointments because of this? If so, sedation might be right for you. To learn about the best options for you, please ask us about it on your next visit, or contact us for more information.
