Frequently Asked Questions On Oral Health

Do I need x-rays at each visit?

How often you should visit your dentist in Spruce Grove will depend on your oral health. If you have demonstrated excellent oral health for the last few years, you likely won’t need X-rays at every appointment. Note, dental X-rays are a vital diagnostic tool and deliver very little radiation.

How can I get my records transferred?

The dentist who provided past treatments will own the original dental records. You can request for a copy of records to be transformed from your former dentist. Consult with your dentist or contact the provincial dental regulatory body if you have any questions about the record transfer process.

Does my dentist need to wear gloves and a mask, and how do I know he or she is using clean tools?

Yes, it’s essential for your dentist to wear gloves and a mask for infection control. You can ensure clean tools by confirming their sterilization protocol and observing the use of sealed, sterilized packages for instruments.

When should I take my child to the dentist for the first time?

Take your child to the dentist for their first visit by their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. Early dental visits help establish good oral hygiene habits and detect any potential issues early on.

What’s the difference between in-office and at home whitening kits?

In-office teeth whitening treatments, performed by professionals, usually use stronger bleaching agents and often include light or heat to speed up the whitening process, offering immediate and significant results. At-home whitening kits, on the other hand, involve lower-concentration bleaching agents and take longer to achieve noticeable results, but they offer the convenience of gradual treatment in the comfort of one’s home.
