General Questions

How would I know if I have healthy teeth?
Some of the indications of healthy teeth are fresh breath, healthy gums, clean tongue and strong teeth. Brushing and flossing your teeth properly everyday contributes to healthy teeth and gums.

If you have bleeding or swollen gums, broken or chipped teeth that have discoloured over time then it is advised that you consult with your dentist.

How often should I visit the dentist?
The number of times you visit the dentist depends on your dental health, but on average it is recommended that you visit your dentist at least twice a year if there are little signs of cavities and gum disease. People who are at high risk of dental diseases should try to visit the dentist at least every three or four months a year.
What is the cause of severe tooth pain?
Severe toothache could be a sign of an infection within the tooth, a damaged or broken tooth, an exposed tooth root, a dental cavity, gum disease or the wisdom tooth having little space to grow.
What should I do if my tooth breaks or chips?
It is recommended that you see the dentist as soon as possible if your tooth breaks or chips to avoid further complications and underlying issues that may need attention immediately, and to determine the cause of the breakage.
What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that develop at the back of the upper and lower jaw of the mouth. They are usually the last set of teeth to appear when people get into their late teens or early twenties. Some people experience no problems when their wisdom teeth are growing but for others it can cause pain, infection and other forms of discomfort.
At what age can children visit the dentist?
It is recommended that a child’s first dental visit should be around four to six months after the first tooth develops. This happens when the child is around 4 to 6 months of age. An appointment should be made with the dentist for a dental check-up and assessment.
What foods can be eaten after an extraction?

It is suggested that patients who have had their tooth removed should eat foods that are soft.

Here are a few foods that you can eat if you have had a tooth extracted:

  • Ice-cream
  • Soup
  • Pudding
  • Mash potatoes
  • Yogurt
  • Oatmeal
  • Milkshake
  • Broths
  • Eggs
  • Banana
What foods should be avoided after an extraction?

After an extraction of a tooth, the affected area from which the tooth was pulled is very sensitive and can be painful, therefore, it is advised that certain foods that are hard, crunchy, chewy, fizzy or spicy should be avoided.

Below are a few foods that you should avoid eating after you have had a tooth extracted:

  • Soda
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Seeded bread
  • Hard candy
  • Nuts
  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Meat
