Root Canal Dentist
A dentist is a doctor who is skilled in and licensed to practice in Trinidad. His practice is in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, injuries, and malformations of the teeth, jaws, and mouth. Simply put your dentist is a person who cares, treats, and repairs your teeth.
You can prevent dental problems by visiting your general dentist office in Trinidad and Tobago on a regular basis. The frequency of your dental office checkups is determined by your age, present condition of your teeth, as well as your overall health. We want you to be proud of your healthy bright smiles. The best way to promote dental health is to brush often, floss daily, and eat healthy foods.
Your mouth, teeth, and gums function as tools for eating. But there’s more. These tools are essential for chewing and swallowing; we use these tools to introduce food into the digestive system. Your mouth’s main duty is your body’s initial contact with the nutrient-filled foods you consume. So your typical foods or diet you enjoy impacts not only your general health but also these very same tools: the teeth and gums.What does that mean for you? Simple. If your typical food consumption is poor in nutrition, the first signs often show up in your mouth. Eat healthier. Hit the button below to connect with us so we could support your bright smile.
Although the debate over the benefits of cleaning between your teeth continues, using an interdental cleaner(floss) remains an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums. You should use an interdental cleaner at least once per day as brushing does not remove all plaque.
Other products that clean between teeth include a dental pick, pre-threaded flosser, tiny brushes that reach between the teeth, water flosser or wooden plaque remover (or toothpick)
Please ask your dentist how to use these products safely.
Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
The chewing of sugarless gum increases the flow of saliva, which washes away food and other debris, neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and provides disease-fighting substances throughout the mouth. Increased saliva flow also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel. Most importantly, please dispose of your gum responsibly.
