2. How often should I visit the dentist?


It is generally recommended that you visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and check-up. Regular visits help to maintain your oral health and catch any potential issues early. However, some patients may need more frequent visits based on their individual dental health needs.


3. What should I expect during my first visit?


During your first visit to Dunwoody Dental, you will receive a comprehensive dental exam. This includes a review of your medical history, a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, X-rays if needed, and a professional cleaning. Our dentists, Dr. Amy Mosseri and Dr. Minta Lopez-Torres, will discuss any findings with you and develop a personalized treatment plan if necessary.


4. How can I improve my oral hygiene at home?


Maintaining good oral hygiene at home is crucial for your dental health. We recommend the following tips:


  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles between teeth.
  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash to reduce bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks and drinks.
  • Avoid tobacco products.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups.


5. What are the signs of gum disease?


Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a common condition that can lead to serious dental problems if left untreated. Early signs of gum disease include:


  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth


If you notice any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible.
