Have a Question? Allow Us to Help!

Robin Su DDS offers various general and cosmetic dental services within its office in Upland, CA. If you have a question about any of these services, or about dental care in general, we encourage you to look at some of the frequently asked questions from our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Best Type of Toothbrush I Can Use?

We recommend using a soft toothbrush with a small head. Medium and hard brushes tend to cause irritation and can contribute to the recession of the gums. A small head allows you to get around each tooth more completely and is less likely to injure your gums. It’s unnecessary to “scrub” the teeth as long as you are brushing at least twice a day and visiting your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings.

Is There a Toothpaste That Is Better Than Others?

The short answer is, not really. However, it is recommended that you use a fluoride-containing toothpaste to help decrease the chance of dental decay. Dr. Su recommends that patients use a toothpaste that tastes good to them as long as it contains fluoride.

How Often Do I Need to Floss?

Flossing your teeth at least once a day helps to prevent cavities from forming between the teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing also helps to keep your gums healthy.

What Is the Difference Between a "Crown" and a "Cap?"

Both are restoration options used to repair a severely broken tooth by covering all or most of the tooth after old fillings, decay, and fractured tooth structures have been removed. Materials used in these restorations range from gold, porcelain, composites, and even stainless steel. Most dentists refer to all of these restorations as “crowns.” However, patients often refer to the tooth-colored option as “caps” and the gold or stainless steel ones as “crowns.”

If I Need a Crown, Does That Mean I Also Need a Root Canal?

No. While most teeth which have had root canal treatments do need crowns to strengthen the teeth and to return the teeth to normal form and function, not every tooth needing a crown also needs to have a root canal.
