Frequently Asked Questions

Come visit our clinic at Dr. Hubert Gomes dental clinic for an exceptional dental experience. Our friendly and skilled team is ready to welcome you with open arms and provide you with top-notch dental care.

At what age should I start taking my child to see the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children first see a dentist as early as six months of age and no later than one year of age. During this time, your child’s baby teeth will be coming in and your dentist can examine the health of your child’s first few teeth. After the first visit, be sure to schedule regular checkups every six months.

At Dr. Hubert Gomes Dental Clinic, our regular check-ups and cleanings can help prevent common dental problems like cavities and gum disease. By visiting us every six months, you can ensure your smile stays healthy and bright, thanks to our expert care and personalized dental hygiene advice.

Why is visiting the dentist so important?

Visiting the dentist regularly will not only help keep your teeth and mouth healthy, but will also help keep the rest of your body healthy. Dental care is important because it:

  • Helps prevent tooth decay
  • Protects against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
  • Prevents bad breath – brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly will help reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath
  • Gives you a more attractive smile and increases your self-confidence
  • Helps keep teeth looking bright by preventing them from becoming stained by food, drinks, and tobacco
  • Strengthens your teeth so that you can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of your life!

By visiting Dr. Hubert Gomes Dental Clinic regularly, you can take proactive steps to prevent cavities and gum disease. Our dental experts will assess your oral health, offer personalized advice, and perform thorough cleanings to keep your smile healthy and free from dental issues.

My teeth feel fine. Do I still need to see a dentist?

Your teeth may feel fine, but it’s still important to see the dentist regularly because problems can exist without you knowing. Your smile’s appearance is important, and your dentist can help keep your smile healthy and looking beautiful. With so many advances in dentistry, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, missing, or misshapen teeth. Today’s dentists offer many treatment choices that can help you smile with confidence, including:

  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Fillings that mimic the appearance of natural teeth
  • Tooth replacement and full smile makeovers

At Dr. Hubert Gomes Dental Clinic, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry options to enhance the appearance of your smile. Whether you’re looking for teeth whitening, dental veneers, or orthodontic solutions, we can help you achieve the stunning smile you’ve always wanted.

How can I address bad breath (halitosis) effectively?

Regular brushing, flossing, tongue cleaning, and staying hydrated can help combat bad breath. If the issue persists, visit your dentist to rule out any underlying causes.

Are dental implants a suitable option for me, and what is the procedure like?

If you’re concerned about bad breath, our dental experts will identify the cause and recommend effective solutions. With our guidance and professional care, you can enjoy fresher breath and renewed confidence.
