Q:What is the best toothbrush to use?

A: There are a lot of options out there when it comes to toothbrushes, but making the right choice is actually fairly simple. You need a soft-bristle brush that is the right size for your mouth. Typically, adults need a toothbrush with a head that is half an inch across and an inch long, but this can vary based on the size of your mouth. Look for a toothbrush that provides adequate coverage to the surface of your teeth, but is not so big that you have difficulty reaching the back of your mouth.

Beyond size and bristle firmness, everything else is a matter of personal preference. So find a toothbrush you like and that keeps your teeth and gums clean, and go with it.

Q: Can my family be seen at the same dentist?

A: Absolutely! First Dental Associates is a family-focused dental practice. We not only accommodate every member of your family – we welcome them. Our friendly staff will get to know your family, so we can provide the quality dental care you need to stay healthy.

Q: Which is better, implants or dentures?

A: Although much of this depends on your individual needs, one thing to consider is that dental implants provide a level of stability and security not available from dentures alone. But you do not have to use implants to replace one tooth at a time. A few implants can be used to anchor and stabilize a set of dentures, either partial or full. Consult with the experts at First Dental Associates to find out which option is best for you.

Q: What is the safest athletic mouthguard option?

A: There are many options for athletic mouthguards, but for the most comfort and protection, you need a mouthguard that is custom fitted and built specifically for your mouth.

Q: Do you have any specials?

A: Yes. With our referral program, we offer a $25 gift card for every patient you refer to First Dental Associates. We also provide free athletic mouthguards to local students – all you need is a student ID.
