The team at Parkview Dental Centre have tried and tested techniques to help you overcome dental fear
“Very professional from start to finish. As a new patient I was extremely impressed and very pleased to have found such a great dentist in my new area.”
At the minimum, you should see a dentist for a check-up and dental clean twice per year. You may need to have more frequent visits if you are struggling with a dental health problem like gum disease or heavy tartar build-up.
X-rays are very important to diagnosing your dental problems and planning safe treatment. This kind of imaging is the only way a dentist can see into your tooth without cutting it open. When you have a dental checkup, your dentist will let you know if you are due for a new set of X-rays.
Advanced tooth decay can make your teeth sensitive to temperature and sweets and may present as brown, grey, or yellow stains on your teeth. A throbbing toothache is also a sure sign that your tooth may need repair. But early tooth decay does not cause such noticeable symptoms. In most cases, you will not know that you need a filling unless the dentist notices one on a dental X-ray.
