Useful Questions to Ask Your Dentist at Your Next Checkup

It’s always a relief to hear your teeth and gums are in great shape, but you may have wondered if there are other questions you should be asking your dentist? The more you learn about your teeth, the better you can take care of them.

Is My Dental Routine the Best It Can Be?

After your teeth are cleaned, it’s worth asking if there are any changes you could make, and which could improve your dental health. Often just small changes could make a difference, such as flossing more often or perhaps changing your toothpaste.

Should I Be Doing Anything Different When I Brush and Floss My Teeth?

During dental checkups your dentist and hygienist can identify areas that could do with a bit more attention, for example maybe you miss out specific areas of your mouth when brushing or perhaps you could do with cleaning your tongue.

What More Can I Do to Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease?

These two dental diseases can cause tooth loss and may need lengthy and expensive treatments. Straightforward changes that can be useful include watching your diet or cutting down on sugary or acidic snacks in between meals.
