7 Best Questions for Your Dentist

Have a dental check-up coming up soon? Ask these 7 questions at your next dental appointment to learn how you can better care for your teeth and smile:

  1. How can I boost my dental health?: You should always ask your dentist what you can be doing to improve your dental health. This may range from more diligent flossing to dietary changes, but it's always a good question to have in your pocket.
  2. What dental problems should I watch out for?: We all have different levels of risk for different dental conditions based on our personal experiences and medical history. Asking your dentist which problems might come up for you specifically can help you know what signs and symptoms to look out for.
  3. Should I talk to my general doctor about anything?: Dental health and overall health are both deeply related, so asking this question is a great way to start a discussion of how you can improve both and prevent issues down the road.
  4. What procedures would you recommend for me?: Your dentist should talk over any recommended treatments as a matter of course, but it never hurts to ask about the procedures available to you.
  5. How can I improve the appearance of my smile?: While dental health is always the top priority, you should feel great about the look of your smile, as well! There are many cosmetic dental procedures available, so asking this question can give you a better perspective on how you can achieve a more beautiful smile.
  6. Do I need to change my diet?: What you eat and drink has a big impact on the health of your teeth. Ask this question to learn what you can do to adopt a more tooth-friendly diet.
  7. What would you do in my situation?: If you're trying to choose between different treatment options, sometimes it can be hard to know which is right. Your dentist will help guide you in making the choice, but sometimes it's helpful to simply ask them what they'd do if they were you.
