  2. Q.1 Why should one see the dentist regularly? Many people do not see their dentist regularly unless they have any dental problem. Dental visits are important to keep your teeth & gums healthy in order to prevent dental problems in future. People have misconception of wasting money over a regular dental check up but they are not actually aware that they are preventing dental problem before they reach advanced stages. Usually most of the dental conditions do not show any symptoms unless they attain the advanced stages of the disease. DR. SACHDEVA’s DENTAL INSTITUTE

  3. Q.2 Is flossing teeth mandatory even if I follow brushing regularly? Yes flossing is as important as brushing teeth. Brushing helps in cleaning & removing the plaque & debris present at the surface of teeth, whereas flossing helps to remove the film of bacteria & food from between the spaces of your teeth. Flossing helps you to preserve & keep your gums healthy by cleaning them regularly. One should floss once a day in order to get rid of plaque present between the two surfaces of teeth. DR SACHDEVA’s DENTAL INSTITUTE

  4. Q.3 How can I convince my kids to brush their teeth regularly? Kids follow what they usually see, try brushing your teeth in front of them so that they become keen to follow the same activity. Once they see you following the good dental habits, ultimately they will try to implement the same into their regular activities. Besides all this you can show them videos of kids brushing their teeth, also consult your dentist as soon as child’s first tooth erupts into the oral cavity. DR. SACHDEVA’s DENTAL INSTITUTE

  7. Q.6 What is fluoride & why it is important to dental health? Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral available in water & various foods, helps to prevent caries in children & adult. When the outer surface of teeth is treated with fluoride it makes the tooth resistant to acid attacks from bacteria that leads to decay.
