Frequently Asked Questions about replacing missing teeth
How often do I need to see the dentist and hygienist?
At J&R Dental in Ruislip we recommend that you see a dentist and hygienist every 6 to 12 months. Your dentist and hygienist will recommend how often they want to see you, and this will be based upon the health of your teeth and gums and your lifestyle.
Is it better to use a manual or an electric toothbrush?
Research has proved that both types of toothbrushes are effective in removing plaque and keeping teeth clean as long as they are used in the correct manner. Our expert hygienists can show you how to best use both types of toothbrushes.
Should I use mouthwash?
Mouthwash is a good option to use, but it should not be used instead of brushing. Mouthwashes that contain fluoride will coat the teeth and help to prevent plaque from forming. Mouthwash also helps to kill off bacteria that causes bad breath.
