And Other Frequently Asked Dental Questions

How Often Do I Need to Visit the Dentist?

Every six months for children and adults is recommended for proper preventative maintenance. Many people believe brushing and flossing consistently justifies fewer dental visits, which is simply not true. Cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer are all dental problems that aren’t evident until later stages when problems begin to develop. Visiting every six months will ensure any issues with your teeth, gums, or mouth are treated early. Waiting until issues develop symptoms can make them more difficult to treat.

What is the Best Way to Whiten my Teeth?

Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes can lift some stains from the surface of teeth. They are safe and somewhat effective, but don’t have the whitening ability most patients are seeking. The safest and most effective way to get a super-bright smile is a professional bleaching, performed in our office. This method is faster and more effective than at-home systems. We also monitor the process to ensure results are effective, without damaging teeth or gums.

Why Do I Always Have Bad Breath?

Bad breath can be caused by several different factors. Poor hygiene is a major culprit. Without proper brushing and flossing, bacteria can build up, producing foul odors. If you brush and floss regularly, there may be other problems. Infections, medications, salivary gland problems, dry mouth, or diet can all be reasons for chronic bad breath. Visit us for an exam to rule out serious issues.

When Should My Child Visit the Dentist for the First Time?

The recommendation for a child’s first dental visit is between six months and one year of age. The initial visit for your child will include an exam to see how tooth formation is evolving. Visits at this age are also a means for parents to learn how to care for toddlers’ and children’s teeth. Factors such as proper brushing, flossing, and dietary influence on baby teeth are important for proper development. Be sure to maintain visits every six months to avoid anxiety and fear from building. If they’re familiar with the process, they will be more likely to like us.

Do I Really Have to Floss?

Yes, always. Many adults only floss when there is food stuck between their teeth, but that’s not the purpose. Flossing on a regular basis plays a large role in preventing gum disease. Gum disease is an inflammatory condition caused by bacteria present in plaque buildup. As fair warning, we can tell if you floss with just a glance!

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
