Questions to Consider Asking Your Dentist

Dentist and patient shaking handsIf you’re trying to make the most out of your next visit to your general dentist for a cleaning and exam, there are a few questions you can ask to boost your understanding and maximize your time spent in the dental chair. Here at Endodontic Specialists, we believe in patient education and we know that the more you know about your oral health, the better you’ll be able to care for your teeth and mouth.

Questions to Ask Your Dentist

Below are a few questions you can ask to learn more about your oral health:

  • How is my overall dental health?
    This question can give you a good idea of how well your oral hygiene routine is working. This is also a great way for you to gain insight into other areas of your lifestyle or health that could be contributing to your dental health, good or bad.
  • How can I improve my oral health?
    Pay close attention to specific procedures or treatments that your dentist recommends for you. Your dentist can also help you determine if you’re brushing correctly, using the proper type and amount of toothpaste, or if it’s time to incorporate a new product or practice into your daily oral hygiene routine.
  • Should I make a visit to my family doctor?
    You’d be surprised at how connected your dental health is to your overall health. Your dentist may be able to spot the signs of a non-dental medical problem that may require attention from your family doctor. Asking this question will make sure that all the right people have the relevant information regarding your health.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to make a list of any questions or concerns you may have about your oral health. Let your regular dentist know of any changes you’ve noticed in your mouth, teeth, or gum tissue. Even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal it could be a symptom of something more serious.
