If you’re a dental care expert, it’s time to test your knowledge with this dental care quiz! Feel free to answer the questions below and let our Heather Bobb, DDS, FICOI team know how you did:

Question: How often should I visit my dentist?
Answer: It’s best to visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup. If you attend these appointments, your dental team will be able to keep your smile in tip-top shape by eliminating the plaque from your smile.

Question: How safe are dental X-Rays?
Answer: Dental X-Rays are safe, especially because of the latest developments dental technology has made. Now dental X-Rays only produce low radiation levels and only focus on a small section of your body. In fact, federal law requires that dental X-Ray machines are checked every two years for safety and accuracy.

Question: I’m scared of the dental office. What should I do?
Answer: The first thing you need to do is tell your dentist and dental team about your dental anxiety. If they know about your anxiety, they will do all they can to accommodate your needs and help you feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed in the dental chair. We also encourage you to consider the use of dental sedation.

Question: What are dental sealants?
Answer: Dental sealants are small, natural-looking shells that cover the entire surface of your tooth and protect it from tooth decay and other dental issues. This treatment is generally meant to protect children’s teeth, but adults can take advantage of it as well if they don’t have any fillings and if they take good care of their teeth.

Question: What are common restorative treatments?
Answer: Some common restorative dental treatments used to correct smiles include dental fillings, dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
