If you are not sure about your oral health and have dentistry questions, you can ask them to your dentist when you visit them the next time. But to give you a head start, here are some questions which patients frequently ask along with their answers.
How Can I Whiten My Teeth?
We are all want to make sure we have a perfect smile, and white shining teeth are an integral part of your smile. Patients always ask about whitening their teeth. It is a difficult question to answer because there isn’t a one-size-fits-all teeth whitening treatment. You can come in for an in-office professional whitening session. This is a fast and effective way to whiten your teeth. If your teeth are not in very bad condition, you can get good results with over-the-counter teeth whitening treatment kits. Your dentist will be able to help you with which is the best solution for you.
How Often Should I Visit A Dentist?
It would be best if you visited your dentist once in six months for a regular check-up and cleaning session. But if you have a history of gum disease or are undergoing orthodontic treatment, you will be required to see your dentist more frequently. Make sure you comply with those recommendations.
What Is Cavity?
We all know that cavity is not good for our teeth. But most people do not understand what a cavity is. If put in simple words, a cavity is when decay causes a hold in your tooth. The tooth structure from this hollow space is completely eaten up, and you must immediately get the cavity filled. Else, it can get bigger with time.
Is It Safe To Have An Dental X-Ray?
Nowadays, dental X-rays are very safe. The amount of radiation your body will receive is the same amount of radiation you receive when flying on an airplane.
