Dental FAQs

In many cases, you will hear our dentist recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year. Biannual dental cleanings help prevent plaque buildup, cavities, and gum disease. However, the frequency of your cleanings will ultimately vary based on your oral health.

In a dental emergency, it is essential to remain calm and contact our office immediately. We see dental emergencies the same day and offer a variety of treatments to restore your oral health. Whether you’re experiencing severe pain, swelling, or injury, it is essential to seek professional help.

At Dental Smiles, we treat every smile differently, as every patient has unique needs. On average, patients can expect a routine checkup to last up to an hour, while more comprehensive visits may require additional time. If you are concerned about timing, we encourage you to mention your concern to our front office team, who can provide an estimate of your appointment length.

We typically recommend changing your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed or worn. Over time, the bristles of your toothbrush can deteriorate, making them less effective at removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. It’s also advisable to replace your toothbrush after recovering from a cold, flu, or other contagious illnesses to prevent reinfection.

Preventing cavities involves regular brushing and flossing, limiting sugary foods, drinking water, and eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Visiting our office for regular check-ups and cleanings and receiving additional preventive services, like dental sealants and fluoride treatments, can also be very beneficial.

Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms on the surface of teeth. It develops when bacteria in the mouth interact with sugars and starches from food, producing acids that can attack tooth enamel. If not removed through proper oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing, plaque can harden into tartar, which is more difficult to remove and can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.

In some cases, patients know which services they need to achieve their oral health and smile goals and are searching for an Austin dental team who can assist them. If you’re not sure what your smile needs—no worries! Feel free to get in touch with our team and schedule a consultation. Dr. Shetty would be happy to assess your smile and create a custom treatment plan just for you.

When choosing a new primary dental care provider, it’s important to consider factors like office location, financing options, and the services your family currently needs as well as treatments you may want or need in the future.
