What questions should I ask a new dentist?
Asking questions before choosing a dentist is very important. That way, you can get to know the dental team and the environment in order to decide whether they’re a good fit for you.
Here are some questions you’ll want to ask a potential dentist:
- Is gum disease or gingivitis something I should be worried about?
- Am I at risk for future dental issues?
- What are your tips for better oral hygiene at home?
- Do you have any payment plans?
- Why are my teeth so sensitive?
- Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening treatments?
- What is causing the pain in my teeth?
- Do you offer any procedures that would benefit me?
Your dentist should be an advisor and an advocate for your dental health. Dr. Hatch can recommend dental products, give advice on minor problems before they become bigger issues, and provide information on ways to improve your dental hygiene based on your specific needs. We are here to help you and want to make sure you’re comfortable at our office.
Why is visiting the dentist so important?
Visiting the dentist is important for the appearance of your smile and also for the health of your mouth. Even if you take good care of your teeth, there are areas of your mouth that can be difficult to clean consistently. Those areas can become prone to cavities or bacterial infection.
When you visit us every six months for your cleaning and exam, we’ll thoroughly clean every area of your mouth and see if you need any additional treatments. You’re less likely to undergo invasive dental procedures if you keep up with your regular appointments.
