Why Do I Need to See a Dentist?
As important as it is, keeping up good oral hygiene habits alone isn’t enough to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Alongside keeping up good dental hygiene habits, you should be visiting your dentist once every six months for a cleaning and exam.
Cleanings can get to any plaque buildup that your brush misses, and exams help catch any dental issues early on.
It’s especially important to make an appointment with us if you are experiencing any issues–we can offer solutions that will keep issues from getting worse and encourage healing and rejuvenation.
When Should I Schedule My Dental Visits?
When in doubt, it’s always a good idea to schedule an appointment with us if you have questions or problems concerning your oral health. Preventing a dental issue before it develops is the best way to keep your smile healthy and avoid any costly procedures. If you are experiencing any symptoms or problems, make sure to visit Weinberg Dentistry as soon as you can.
Also, make sure not to skip your regular cleaning and exam. You should be coming in for an exam once every six months to help maintain your oral hygiene and protect your teeth. Prevention is key! These semi-annual appointments can do so much to defend against future dental problems.

What Can I Expect During My Exam and Cleaning?
It’s important to schedule a dental exam and cleaning with us once every six months so that we can ensure that your smile is healthy and catch any issues before they worsen. The exam and cleaning are fairly quick; we’ll have you in and out in no time!
During your exam we’ll do the following:
- Examine your teeth and gums. We’ll get some digital x-rays of your mouth and check both your teeth and gums to make sure your mouth is healthy. If we see anything out of the ordinary, we’ll let you know!
- Do a careful cleaning of your teeth. During your exam, we will clean your gums and teeth and remove any mineral buildup that your toothbrush may miss at home. This cleaning is one of the best ways to prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Polish your teeth. After cleaning your teeth and gums we will polish your teeth to give you a brighter and more confident smile. We have a variety of polish flavors to make your visit a little more fun and personalized.
- Give your teeth a fluoride treatment. During the exam, you’ll have the option to get a fluoride treatment. This strengthens the protective enamel of your teeth and helps to prevent cavities.
- Discuss recommended habits. After your exam, we’ll go over your current dental habits, and talk about any habits that might need to change. If any follow-up appointments are needed, we’ll also schedule those at this time.
- Oral cancer screening. We conduct a full screening for oral cancer each time you visit. Our dentists are trained to detect early warning signs of oral cancer that most people are unable to spot on their own.
Common Issues Treated by Weinberg Dentistry
Cavities are formed when bacteria wears through your tooth enamel. The longer a cavity is left untreated the worse it becomes, causing pain and swelling.
When you come in for a cavity filling, Dr. Weinberg will clean the cavity and then use a dental filling to fill in the affected area of your tooth. This thin protective coating defends your tooth from infection and bacteria and applying it is a pain-free process.
Toothaches are caused by a variety of different dental issues and can be a warning sign that something is wrong.
Common causes of toothaches include:
- Gum disease.
- Tooth grinding.
If you are experiencing a toothache, be sure to schedule an appointment with us as soon as you can. In the meantime, over-the-counter pain relievers should help with the pain.
Plaque and Tartar
Plaque and tartar buildup can seriously damage your teeth over time. This buildup slowly damages your gums and the protective enamel of your teeth, leading to cavities and gingivitis.
To protect your teeth from plaque make sure to brush twice a day and floss daily. You should also make sure to schedule an appointment with us twice a year for a cleaning and exam. Dental cleanings can get to anything the brushing and flossing don’t.
Gingivitis / Periodontal Disease
Gingivitis, or periodontal disease, is the earliest stage of gum disease. It occurs when the gums are infected by plaque. Warning signs of gingivitis include:
- Red and sensitive gums.
- Bleeding gums.
- Persistent bad breath.
It is important to treat gingivitis early on to prevent it from becoming periodontitis, a more advanced form of gum disease. If you have the above symptoms be sure to schedule an appointment with us now. To avoid gingivitis, make sure to maintain good oral hygiene habits!
Common causes of mouth sores include:
- Irritation, from a broken orthodontic wire.
- Irritation from a chipped tooth.
- Infection from bacteria or a virus.
- Specific diseases or disorders.
Mouth sores typically go away on their own, but if it persists for longer than a week make sure to schedule an appointment with us. You should also schedule an appointment with us if you are experiencing a lot of pain and over-the-counter medications aren’t helping.
If you think that the sore is due to a broken wire or chipped tooth, schedule a visit so we can take care of the cause.
General Dentistry FAQ
How Do I Know When I Need a Dentist?
Many dental issues can be prevented by maintaining good oral hygiene and coming in for regular cleanings and exams, but sometimes dental issues still occur. If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms, you may want to schedule an appointment with us.
- Red and irritated gums. Swollen, tender, and red gums can be a sign of gum disease or infection.
- Bleeding gums. If your gums bleed when you brush or floss, it could be a sign of gingivitis.
- Receding gums. Receding gum lines and gums that begin pulling away from the teeth are common signs of gum disease or other issues.
- Loose permanent teeth. Loose permanent teeth are commonly a symptom of gum disease.
- Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold. If it hurts to eat hot or cold foods, this could be a sign of a dental issue.
- Persistent bad breath. Lingering bad breath could be a sign of bacteria, which can lead to cavities or gingivitis.
- Pain when chewing. Painful or difficult chewing could be a sign of a variety of different dental issues such as gingivitis, cavities, or temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
Whether you are experiencing multiple symptoms, or just one, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinberg.
What’s the Best Routine for Good Oral Health?
Maintaining a good oral health routine will take care of your teeth and gums. Give your mouth the best chance by following these steps:
- Follow a good brushing routine. You should brush for two minutes twice a day, using ADA-approved fluoride toothpaste. It is best if you angle away from your gums and use soft, circular motions. Also, be sure to floss at least once a day.
- Keep up good dietary habits. Eating balanced meals is a good way to keep your teeth healthy, as well as the rest of your body. Try to avoid eating or drinking overly acidic or sugary foods and drinks, such as coffee or candy.
- Avoid chewing on hard foods. Eating hard foods like rock candy or ice can chip and damage your teeth. It’s also much better to open tough packages with scissors than with your teeth.
- Schedule regular dental visits. Maintaining regular exams and checkups, and getting dental work completed sooner rather than later is a good way to keep your mouth healthy and prevent issues from worsening.
Is Dental Treatment Really Important for Everyone?
Whether a child or adult, dental treatment is crucial for people of all ages.
Some people think that because baby teeth aren’t permanent, dental treatment isn’t very important. However, while baby teeth aren’t permanent, it’s extremely important to take good care of your child’s teeth and gums. Unhealthy baby teeth can affect the permanent teeth as they grow in.
Dental treatment is important as you get older as well, and it’s important not to skip cleanings and exams or to put off dental work.
How Can I Protect My Child’s Teeth During Sports?
Mouth guards are an excellent way to protect your child’s smile. By cushioning any blows to the face, mouth guards protect not only your child’s teeth but their jaw, tongue, and cheeks as well.
Mouth guards work great for collision sports, such as:
If your child plays a contact sport, you might want to consider getting them a mouth guard.
General boil and bite mouthguards are available at your local drug store, but the best mouth guards are those custom-made to fit your child’s mouth. If you’re interested, ask our dentists about how you can get a custom mouth guard for your child.
Mouth guards are important for protecting your child’s smile during sports, but to protect their smile from bacteria make sure to wash the mouth guard often. Wash the mouthguard with soap after wearing it, and make sure to keep the mouthguard dry between games.
How Can I Prevent Bad Breath?
There are many things you can do to improve your breath, such as the following:
- Maintain good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, and don’t forget to floss.
- Use mouthwash. Selecting a dentist-approved mouthwash can help!
- Change your eating habits. Avoid overly acidic or sugary foods and drinks.
- Quit smoking. Smoking and tobacco can cause bad breath and stain your teeth.
Everyone deals with bad breath every now and then, but persistent bad breath could be a sign that something more serious is at play, such as cavities, sinus infections, or gum disease. If you are still experiencing bad breath, make sure to schedule an appointment with us.
How Can I Maintain Oral Health During Pregnancy?
Oral hygiene is always important, but it’s especially important to take good care of your teeth while pregnant. The changes in hormones during pregnancy can greatly affect your oral health, making you more susceptible to issues such as:
- Tooth decay.
- Swelling gums.
To help keep your smile healthy, be sure to maintain good oral hygiene and visit Weinberg Dentistry at least once every six months. If you’re experiencing any dental symptoms make sure to schedule an appointment with us as soon as you can.
While we may postpone certain cosmetic dentistry until after your pregnancy, it’s perfectly safe to come in for dental work during your pregnancy. Both our anesthetics and x-rays are safe for you and the baby.
