At Seven Dental, we receive questions all day long from our patients. Typically, the questions are quite common, and we find it easier to provide information for all of our patients. Notice a question is missing from our Frequently Asked Questions page? Let us know at your next appointment; we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

How often should I brush my teeth?

We recommend brushing your teeth after each meal (about 30 minutes) however if that is not possible you should brush a minimum of twice a day.

How often should I floss?

We recommend flossing in between ALL of your teeth at least once a day.

How can I clean my tongue?

Certain toothbrushes come with tongue scrapers, or you can buy one separately. It is important to also clean your tongue to remove bacteria.

What kind of toothbrush should I use?

We recommend only using soft-bristled toothbrushes. Make sure that any toothbrush used fits correctly in the mouth and can reach all areas.

How often should I replace my toothbrush?

We recommend replacing your toothbrush at least 4 times a year. In the event you are sick or notice your toothbrush is worn, we recommend replacing your toothbrush immediately.

When should I start brushing my baby’s teeth?

We actually recommend starting immediately; you can use a soft washcloth to gently massage the gums, removing bacteria while also getting your child used to dental care.
