Three Great Questions to Ask Your Dentist

CoupleIf you’re trying to make the most out of your next visit to Balota Family Dentistry, there are a few questions you can ask to help maximize your time spent in our office. We put a huge emphasis on patient education and we feel that the more educated you are about your oral health, the better you’ll be able to care for your teeth and mouth.

3 Questions to Ask Your Dentist

  • What can I do to improve my oral health?

Pay close attention to any specific treatments that your dentist recommends. Additionally, your dentist can help you figure out if you’re brushing correctly, using the right kind of toothpaste, or if you may want to incorporate a new product into your oral hygiene routine.

  • How is my overall oral health?

Asking this question will help you get a broader view of your overall oral health. This can help you learn what you’re doing well at and what things you could be working on. This is also a way for you to gain some insight on other areas of your health or lifestyle that could be contributing to your oral health.

  • Is there anything I should talk to my family doctor about?

Lastly, your oral health is linked to your overall health. Your dentist may be able to spot the signs of a non-dental medical issue that requires medical attention from your regular doctor. Asking this question will ensure that all the correct people have the relevant information.

Another great way to make sure you’re taking advantage of your time in our office to be prepared. Please let us know about any kind of dental problem you may be experiencing or if you’ve noticed something unusual about your teeth or the soft tissues of your mouth. Even if you may not think it’s a big deal, it could be a symptom of something bigger.

To make an appointment to receive a dental cleaning and exam, please contact Balota Family Dentistry. Our general dental office is located here in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
