The more you know about your dental health, the more easily you can make changes to potentially improve it. Next time you see your dentist, consider asking them these questions.

Can I Do Anything to Prevent Gum Disease and Cavities?

Gum disease and tooth decay are common, but both are preventable. After assessing your dental health, your dentist might have some suggestions such as changing your diet to avoid sugary foods and especially between meals, or they might recommend using an antibacterial mouthwash.

Do I Need to Change My Dental Routine?

Most of us stick to the same dental routine year in year out, but making some simple changes could improve your oral health. Possible suggestions might include changing your toothpaste or using a different type of dental floss.

Can I Improve My Oral Hygiene?

Even people with the best level of oral health still have room for some improvements. For example, perhaps some teeth need more attention when you brush or floss, or maybe your tongue could do with cleaning regularly.

Most often, we will tell you if we think we can give you some information that will help improve your oral hygiene routine. However, it never does any harm to ask or to ask any other questions about your dental health.
