Why do I need dental X-rays?

Dental X-rays, or radiographs, are essential tools in dentistry for diagnosing various oral health issues. They help dentists detect tooth decay, assess damage to teeth, monitor tooth development and alignment, identify gum disease, and plan dental procedures. X-rays provide detailed images of teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures, aiding in early detection and treatment of dental problems. While they involve minimal radiation exposure, the benefits they offer in maintaining oral health outweigh potential risks when used appropriately.

How do I prevent cavities?

Fiori Dental San Mateo follows American Dental Association guidelines to help patients prevent tooth decay. Preventing cavities involves a combination of good oral hygiene practices and healthy lifestyle choices. Brushing teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste helps remove plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that contributes to tooth decay. Flossing daily removes plaque and food particles from between teeth, where toothbrushes can’t reach. Limiting sugary and acidic foods and drinks, as well as snacking between meals, helps reduce the risk of cavities. Drinking water throughout the day, especially fluoridated water, helps rinse away food particles and strengthen tooth enamel. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings allow dentists to detect and treat cavities early. Additionally, dental sealants can be applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to provide an extra layer of protection against decay. Overall, maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine, eating a balanced diet, and visiting the dentist regularly are key components of cavity prevention.

How often should I floss my teeth?

It is recommended that people floss at least once a day to ensure that food does not build up between teeth and form harmful plaque. Contact Fiori Dental San Mateo for more information or to schedule an appointment.

What do I need to bring to my first dental appointment?

Typically, you will be asked to bring a photo ID and a copy of your insurance details (if any) to your first appointment. You can complete your New Patient Form online. Contact Fiori Dental San mateo for more information or to schedule an appointment.
