Have questions before your dental appointment? We provide questions to the most common questions that we’re asked in our office.
Questions and Answers to Know
Are baby teeth important?
Yes. While baby teeth will fall out, they’re integral in chewing, helping children speak and also in forming a natural path for adult teeth growth.
What do I do if my child has a toothache?
Rinse the area with salt water and apply a cold compress to the area. Acetaminophen can be given to alleviate pain while you wait for your dentist appointment.
How do dental sealants work?
A dentist or certified dental assistant fills in the crevasses in your teeth to stop particles from getting caught in your teeth. Sealants last years, and it’s a fast and painless process.
Is my child getting enough fluoride?
If your child’s old enough to use a Fluoridated toothpaste that’s normally the most a child will need for Fluoride
How do I protect my teeth when playing sports?
Custom-fitted mouthguards offer the best protection from teeth and head injuries. Soft-plastic mouthguards can also be used to limit sports-related injuries to your cheeks, lips, gums and teeth.
Are dental X-rays safe?
We understand your concern about X-ray safety. We're careful to limit the amount of radiation you’re exposed to and we take safety to the next level with lead aprons and digital x-rays, which produce up to 90% less radiation.
Common Terms to Know Before Going to Your Langley Dental Care Clinic
We use a lot of dental terms to explain certain dental-related issues, and while we’re going to cover many of the terms below, feel free to ask your favourite dental office in Langley about any terms not covered
A few of the terms you may hear are:
- Dentist. A dentist is a specialist who works in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all oral cavity diseases and conditions. A dentist is also known as a dental surgeon.
- Dental Caries. Lack of proper care leaves plaque on your teeth and can lead to cavity formation. The term “dental caries” is the same as a cavity.
- Dental Prophylaxis. If you need to stop the spread or growth of gingivitis and periodontal disease, a thorough cleaning can be performed. This cleaning is called a dental prophylaxis.
- Pregnancy Gingivitis. Changes in hormones during pregnancy lead to an increase in gums swelling, irritability, sensitivity and blood flow to gum tissue, leading to pregnancy gingivitis.
For centuries Lighthouses have been a symbol for safety and have played a key role in guiding people in the right direction. Our hope is that our office will be the embodiment of those principles to yourself, family members and friends for years to come.
Welcome to our harbour and we hope you enjoy your time at Lighthouse Dental Centre.
