True or False Dental Questions

  • True or false: The only way to straighten your teeth is with braces
  • True or false: Sealing permanent molars in children can help reduce cavities by 80%
  • True or false: Titanium dental implants can be used to stabilize dentures and improve chewing and comfort
  • True or false: Dentists can help treat snoring and sleep apnea
  • True or false: A regular soda contains between 4 to 5 teaspoons of sugar

The Answers 

True or false: The only way to straighten your teeth is with braces

False! There are multiple ways to help straighten your teeth, such as clear aligners and contouring them or bonding them or covering them with a porcelain material such as a porcelain veneer.

True or false: Sealing permanent molars in children can help reduce cavities by 80%

True! Sealing those deep grooves in the permanent molars can really have a profound impact on the amount of decay in those teeth. Children around age six get their first molars - that's when we seal those. Then we do a second round of sealants at age 12.

True or false: Titanium dental implants can be used to stabilize dentures and improve chewing and comfort

True! People typically think of dental implants as replacing a missing tooth, but they are also very effective in helping to stabilize a denture.

True or false: Dentists can help treat snoring and sleep apnea

True! Most people don't think about their dentist when they have snoring or sleep apnea problems, but dentists are the only licensed medical professional that can make an oral appliance, which can help to alleviate these conditions. Usually, we will work with your physician and or our sleep specialist for a proper diagnosis.

True or false: A regular soda contains between 4 to 5 teaspoons of sugar

False! A regular soda actually contains double that amount which is 8 to 10 teaspoons of sugar. Sugar can be really harmful to your teeth in the long run, especially if you're drinking on a daily basis. So, if you do have a soda, make sure you brush your teeth afterward, or at least rinse your mouth out with some water to help keep those teeth strong and healthy.
