FAQ

Fluoride benefits oral health by remineralizing tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars. It helps prevent the formation of cavities and strengthens teeth.

The frequency of fluoride treatment depends on individual oral health needs and risk factors for cavities. For some individuals, fluoride treatment may be recommended during every dental visit, while for others, it may be done less frequently.

Children should have their first dental checkup by the age of 1 or within six months after the eruption of their first tooth. Early dental visits help establish good oral hygiene habits and allow the dentist to monitor oral development.

Myo appliances are used to address various issues related to oral muscle function, including improper tongue posture, thumb sucking, mouth breathing, speech difficulties, and malocclusions (misalignment of the teeth and jaws). They are often used in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry.

The treatment duration with Myo appliances varies depending on the specific issues being addressed and the individual's response to treatment. Some cases may require a few months, while others may involve longer-term use. The orthodontic or dental professional will provide guidance on the expected duration.

Night appliances are designed to minimize the effects of teeth grinding in children rather than prevent it entirely. By providing a protective barrier, these appliances help reduce the impact on teeth, minimize wear, and prevent potential damage to the tooth structure.

Habit-breaking appliances work by creating a physical barrier or introducing discomfort when the child attempts the unwanted habit. This discourages the habit and helps children become more aware, eventually breaking the habit over time.

While habit-breaking appliances may cause temporary adjustments in speech or eating patterns, children typically adapt quickly. The appliances are designed to allow for normal oral function while discouraging the targeted habit.
