Quiz: Providing Routine Dental Care For Adults And Kids

Providing dental care to patients of all ages means more than just providing the same dental care to everyone, regardless of age. For adult patients, your Celina, TX dentist’s office can provide terrific routine dental care during each checkup. Those visits will involve a cleaning, as well as a careful review of your oral health to identify problems like tooth decay, gum disease, teeth grinding, and more. When young patients come in for dental care, they can benefit from a focus on education and instruction. In addition to important dental health support, they can receive instructions on maintaining good oral hygiene.

Questions:

True Or False: Kids, like adults, receive an oral health review and dental cleaning during routine exams. Younger patients can also receive guidance on taking care of their teeth at home.

True Or False: A semiannual appointment schedule is recommended for patients, unless your dentist determines that you would benefit from a different schedule.

True Or False: By providing dental sealants and fluoride during pediatric dental visits, your dentist can make it easier for kids to avoid cavities.

True Or False: If you brush your teeth at least twice a day, the care you provide your smile is just as good as what you are provided during a routine dental cleaning.

Answers:

True! Offering instructions and guidance to young patients can help them do better at taking care of their teeth at home.

True! Unless you are told that you should use a different schedule, you should make appointments with your dentist every six months.

True! Fluoride helps keep enamel strong, so minor decay is less likely to turn into a cavity. Sealants act as a barrier to keep oral bacteria and food debris off of teeth.

False! Daily dental care matters, but the care you receive during a checkup will exceed the quality of support you provide yourself at home.
