Why does my dentist want to know about my medical history?
Dentists needs to know about any health conditions in order to treat you accordingly. An initial complete medical history is taken and is kept up-to-date by checking with you on a regular basis. Sometimes a health condition can influence the way dental care is provided. For example:
Is there anything I can do to limit the cost of dental care?
Prevention is the best way to maintain good dental health. Practice good dental habits at home: brush and floss daily; limit sugary drinks and snacks; don’t smoke; and visit your dentist for regular care including an examination. Diagnosing problems before they become more complex and costly is the best plan of action. Dental disease is progressive and will not resolve itself. The cost of prevention is always far less than the cost of neglect.
When should I change my toothbrush?
Toothbrushes eventually wear out and are less effective. It is recommended to replace toothbrushes about every three months. If you are using an electric toothbrush, you may not need to change toothbrush heads as frequently, so check the directions on the packaging. Those who have gum disease are encouraged to change their toothbrush more often, about every four to six weeks, to keep any bacteria from spreading. Make sure you rinse your toothbrush with hot water to kill germs after brushing. If you have a cold or sickness, it’s important to change your toothbrush right away to prevent putting harmful bacteria back into your system.

How often should I see the dentist?
Everyone should see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.
How are dental fees determined?
Dental offices are similar to medical clinics and must adhere to strict regulatory standards in the interest of ensuring the highest level of patient safety and care. Dentists are responsible for a number of costs to operate their dental office. They need specialized equipment, sterilization tools, appliances and safety protocols for sterilization, they employee trained and licensed staff that require ongoing education courses. There are also external lab costs and materials used for treatment. Operating costs at dental offices vary between dental offices as well as provincially.
My teeth feel fine. Do I still need to see a dentist?
Your teeth may feel fine, but it's still important to have checkups because problems can exist without presenting any symptoms. If you can catch a small underlying problem, you may be able to prevent further damage and a costly solution.
