Have you been putting off a trip to your holistic dentist Brisbane office? For many people out there, going to the dentist is something we would rather avoid. For others, not having dental insurance can keep us from getting the services we need to have. Regardless of why you have put off seeing your dentist regularly, you should note the importance of maintaining a healthy smile.


Once you lose your baby teeth, you are outfitted with a set of teeth that were designed to last you the rest of your life. It is your job to care for these teeth and ensure they are free of problems. Sadly, with what we eat and drink, the condition of our teeth can suffer. Cavities can develop. Teeth can weaken and break. The result can often mean tooth pain or tooth loss. Is there anything you can do to prevent these things from happening. Absolutely!


Most dental professionals agree that you should visit the dentist every six months for cleanings, and once a year for exams and x-rays. These are essential services that everyone should be doing, and realistically they are not as expensive as you might think, even if you have to pay out of pocket for them. Cleanings, exams, and x-rays are all considered preventative dentistry services and are the cornerstones to excellent oral health. But these aren’t the only times when you should be seeing a dentist.


Are you experiencing chronic toothaches? There might be something going on that needs to be addressed. Teeth usually don’t hurt, and have little to no feeling, other than being able to tell the difference between hot and cold. When a person has emotions like a toothache most of the time, it is from an infection inside the tooth. If a cavity grows deep enough to reach the center of the tooth, the pulp and nerve can become infected, which can be extremely painful. This is the time to visit the dentist too because the problem won’t resolve on its own.


When it comes to children, parents often wonder when is the best time to start seeing the dentist for the first time. Most dentists recommend that children begin seeing the dentist right when their first tooth erupts. While this may seem slightly early, it can set the stage on how a child will care for their teeth, as well as grow comfortable visiting the dentist. However, if you prefer to wait, bringing your child in after they turn one or two is also an excellent time. The dentist can catch issues early on, that may affect eating or speech later on in life.
