Welcome to Springfield Dental! We understand that you may have questions about our services,

so we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you get started.

What are the benefits of regular dental visits?
Regular dental visits are key to maintaining good oral health. During regular visits, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums, check for any signs of oral diseases, and provide preventive treatments to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Regular dental visits also help to identify any potential issues early, before they become more serious and costly to treat.

How often should I visit the dentist?
The Manitoba Dental Association recommends that adults visit the dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and professional cleaning. If you have any particular concerns or issues with your teeth, gums, or mouth, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.

How do I make an appointment at Springfield Dental?
You can book an appointment by calling our office and speaking to one of our friendly staff members.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

At What Age Should my Child See the Dentist?

It's recommended that children first see a dentist as early as six months of age and no later than one year of age. During this time, your child's baby teeth will be coming in and your dentist can examine the health of your child's first few teeth. After the first visit, be sure to schedule regular checkups every six months.

First visit under 3 is free!

How Can I Take Care of My Teeth Between Visits?

  • ALWAYS remember to brush your teeth at least two times a day, and floss at least once!

  • Make sure to use toothpaste that contains fluoride, and ask your dentist if you need a fluoride rinse. This will help prevent cavities. Teeth are the only bones in the body that can't repair themselves.

  • Avoid foods with a high sugar content (sugar increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth causing more plaque and possibly cavities) and avoid tobacco (this can stain your teeth, cause gum disease, and eventually lead to oral cancer).

  • Don't be afraid to brush your tongue! By brushing your tongue, you will remove food particles and reduce the amount of plaque-causing bacteria. Tongue brushing also helps keep your breath fresh.
