Posted on 2/28/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
A trip to our office is an important step to good oral health. We have the education and the tools to give you a good examination, but there is something else that we need. It is important to us to have all the information about what you are doing and what is happening with your oral health.
We need our patients to let us know what they have seen, feel or worry about when it comes to their oral health and habits. This allows us to give a more thorough examination and to give you the information you need to remain healthy.
Start with the Basics You are the person that is most responsible for your oral health. You are the one that needs to take care of your teeth and that gets the benefits from having healthy teeth and gums. For that reason, the first questions you should ask center around how you can take care of your oral health.
Are you brushing the right way? It is important to not only brush your teeth twice a day, but also to do it the right way. We can show you how to do this if you ask.
Do you have the right tools? A good toothbrush, the right toothpaste, floss and mouthwash are some of the tools you need to use at home to maintain good oral health. We can help you decide what fits your needs and your budget.
How often should I visit you're the office? Most people should come in for a checkup and cleaning twice a year, although some people may need to come in more often depending on their needs.
Deeper Questions The questions about the basics are not something you need to ask every time. There are some other questions to consider for your regular visits.
Ask about any pain, bleeding or other symptoms that something is possibly wrong with your oral health. Providing this information can help us look for specific problems that you may have. Ask about different options you have to improve oral health issues you have. It is possible there is a better solution to a problem.
Ask how your oral health is. We will tell you if we see something wrong, but you can still ask about different issues you have worries about. You can also ask if there is something you are doing well. As dental professionals, we know that people have concerns about their oral health.
We also know that some people are afraid to talk about it. We are willing to take the time to listen and answer any question to the best of our ability. That will help you maintain good oral health.
