Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Care

How Often Should I Have Dental Visits?
How often you visit the dentist depends on your oral health needs. Your oral home care, diet, smoking, overall health, and history of cavities all play a role in determining how often you should visit your dentist.

How Often Do I Need X-rays?
Your oral health will determine how often you will need x-rays. On average at Séguin Dental, we take x-rays every two years to ensure proper oral care. However, some people may require x-rays to be taken more often depending on their needs.

At What Age Should I Start Taking My Child to the Dentist?
It is best to start bringing your child six months after the eruption of their first tooth, or by one year of age. This allows the child to become comfortable coming to the dentist, and gives the dentist an idea of how to the child’s teeth will develop to ensure proper oral care.

What’s the Difference Between Professional Bleaching I Get from the Dentist and Store-bought Bleaching?
At Séguin Dental we offer a bleaching kit that you can use in the comfort of your own home. We fabricate custom-fitted trays to ensure the best possible results, and keep track of your progress. The results you will achieve from a professional bleaching kit will give you a better and longer lasting result.
