Proper oral hygiene should be based on regular brushing of teeth twice a day for 2 minutes and dental check-ups once every half a year. Moreover:

  • use toothbrushes safe for enamel, i.e. manual ones with medium-hard bristles, sonic or electric ones,
  • remember to clean the interdental spaces that the toothbrush cannot reach, for example using a dental irrigator,
  • use toothpaste with fluoride, which strengthens the enamel and protects the teeth from dental caries,
  • regularly clean the tongue from the accumulated sediment,
  • avoid eating after brushing your teeth in the evening.

Check-up visits are recommended once every 6 months, but you should also visit the dentist whenever you feel discomfort in the oral cavity – teeth, gums, muscles or joints.

The first visit does not require any special preparations. All you need to do is fill in the health questionnaire and clean your teeth thoroughly before meeting the dentist. Details related to the first visit and document templates can be found here: first visit.

A child’s first normal visit to the dentist should take place around 2-3 years of age and it is worth preceding it with an adaptation visit. The entire process of familiarizing children with the dentist and the office is described in the Parents’ Guide.

Teeth sensitivity is manifested by a feeling of pain or severe discomfort, which is a reaction to stimuli – most often to the cold or sugars contained in food. If you notice that you experience sudden pain when you eat ice cream or drink cold drinks, and it lasts as long as your teeth are in contact with the stimulus, you are probably hypersensitive. In such a situation, you should visit a dentist who will select the appropriate method of treatment.

Absolutely! Treating teeth during pregnancy is even advisable, because untreated lesions and inflammation can spread bacteria throughout the body and cause complications, such as premature birth.

There is no single cause for this condition, so if you have bleeding gums, you should see a dentist. The dentist will identify the cause of the bleeding and select the right treatment. Gum problems should not be ignored, because untreated inflammation can lead to periodontitis.

Unfortunately, no. Toothache will not go away on its own, and if it becomes less intense for a moment, you can be sure that it will return – but stronger. That is why you should visit your dentist as soon as possible. We accept people with extremely severe pain outside the standard work schedule – as emergencies.
