Here are some basic questions you should be asking your dentist on every visit.
By getting the information from these questions, you’ll be provided with the data that you need to protect your oral and whole body health.
1. Is there anything that I should be doing to improve my oral health?
This is a great question to ask!
Your dentist is going to be one of the best people to give you personalized advice on taking care of your teeth, gums, and tongue.
It’s great to get generic tips and recommendations online, but there is likely no one who is going to know your mouth, as well as your dentist, does. By getting first-hand information from them, you’ll be able to make basic adjustments that will help improve your entire health.
2. What is my current dental health situation?
Hopefully, you don’t need to ask this question, but if for some reason your dentist forgets to apprise you on what’s going on in your mouth, make sure you ask him/her.
People get busy and dentists are no exception from this.
Don’t leave your dental appointment without getting up-to-date information on your mouth’s situation.
3. Is there anything I need to communicate with my general doctor based on your exam?
Your oral health plays a vital role in your whole body’s wellness.
Make sure that the information between your dentist and general family doctor are open.
Find out if there is anything that your family doctor needs to know from your dentist and vice versa. It will do you little good if your doctors aren’t working together.
4. Ask if there are other procedures they would recommend?
Not every procedure is something that you need to get done, but there are some optional procedures and services that you may really benefit from.
One such excellent procedure is Zoom Teeth Whitening. Many people could benefit from having their teeth whitened in a safe, effective and quick way.
If you’re missing teeth, then it might be best to get tooth implants or dental bridges.
Maybe your bight is off and you would really benefit from Invisalign Braces. Whatever it may be, go ahead and ask your dentist and get their input.
Okay, here are just a few tips on making sure you’re getting the information you need to be getting from your dentist at each dental visit.
