Frequently Asked Questions

Many people are concerned with being exposed to x-rays or undergoing an x-ray at the dentist. X-rays are excellent for the diagnosis and assessment of many dental health issues which cannot be detected otherwise, however they are only carried out when necessary. Over the last few decades thanks to the development of better equipment and advances in digital radiography, x-rays are now carried out with very low doses of radiation. Much research and studies have shown that the level of radiation to which you are exposed to during a dental x-ray is very minimal and therefore poses no reason for concern. If you would like to find out more information about dental x-rays then speak to us at Spa Dental Ryde.

It is important to visit the dentist on a regular basis for preventative dental treatment to make sure that your teeth and gums remain clean, strong and healthy. This is the most cost-effective way of looking after your dental health. If you require further dental treatment then here at Spa Dental Ryde we can choose treatments and procedures which are suitable for your budget or we can organise a payment plan which may be more affordable for you.

If you are suffering from toothache then it is important that you visit the dentist here at Spa Dental Ryde as soon as possible as this is usually a sign of underlying decay or disease and the earlier it is addressed the less complications there will be further down the line. If you have a broken tooth it is also important that you visit our dentist immediately and bring any broken pieces of your tooth with you where possible.

Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your dental health. If one or more of your teeth are missing then this causes the remaining teeth to shift out of their normal positions to try and fill the gap of the missing tooth. This affects the alignment of your teeth, and it can result in bite disorders. It can weaken your surrounding teeth and result in further tooth loss. Speak to our dentist to find out about the different tooth replacement options that are available for you.

Do children under the age of three need to clean their teeth?

It is important to maintain a good dental hygiene routine from an early age. Baby teeth appear between the age of 4 to 9 months and the teeth need to be cleaned on a daily basis to prevent the formation of cavities and tooth decay. Parents should supervise brushing up to the age of 7 to ensure healthy teeth and gums. It is also important that young children become accustomed to visiting the dentist on a regular basis from an early age so that it becomes a part of their routine and they can enjoy healthy teeth and gums for life.
