FAQs

  • How often should I see my dentist?

    At Algester Dental we believe in preventing emergencies and unexpected problems through regular dental examinations and professional maintenance. We recommend having continuing care appointments with us every 6 months, according to widely accepted professional standards.

  • Should I have my amalgam (silver) fillings replaced?

    Dentists replace amalgam fillings for a variety of reasons including leakage of the filling, recurring decay, fracture of the tooth, endodontic treatment and appearance. Regardless of the type of filling that has been placed, teeth that are more the 50% filled are at a much higher risk of cracking, breaking and fracture. Here at Algester Dental we recommend regular monitoring of heavily filled teeth so preventative and protective measures can be taken if necessary.

  • What is Fluoride?

    Fluoride is the ion that comes from the naturally occurring element, fluorine. Fluorine is never encountered in its free state in nature because it combines with other elements as fluoride compounds in the earth. Water dissolves these compounds, creating fluoride ions that are present in all water sources, including the oceans. (Australian Dental Association, 2002)

  • How does fluoride stop tooth decay?

    Fluoride reduces the number of cavities an individual will develop in their life by about half. This is because it makes the enamel of the tooth more resistant to the acid attacks of plaque bacteria. Resistance occurs initially when the fluoride is incorporated into the teeth during their formation and secondly, as fluoridated water washes over the surface of the erupted teeth. (Australian Dental Association, 2002)
