Ask Questions When You Are Not Sure About a Procedure We Are Doing
Posted on 5/29/2020 by Neil Starr DDS PC
When you have dental questions, don't hesitate to ask them. It dœs not matter if you are having your teeth cleaned, or your gums and teeth examined. You should also ask questions if we plan to bond teeth or fill them. The more you know about a procedure, the more confident you will feel about your oral health.
What You Should Ask Us at an Exam?
To better understand professional gum and teeth care, you should ask direct questions so we can help you understand some of the processes we need to take. For example, one question that is important to ask is â€œWhat is the cause of my tooth pain?â€ Once we examine your teeth and x-ray them, we can give you a diagnosis. Tooth pain can be caused for one of various reasons, including cracks, chips, or a break in the tooth. Make sure you ask about any discomfort you may be experiencing. You may also want to ask what procedures we offer that will strengthen your teeth. While fluoride treatments are suggested for children, we can also provide them for adults. Dental implants or crowns can also improve tooth strength.
