Quiz: Care You Can Look Forward To At Your Dental Checkup

Your daily dental care routine can help you stop problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and help you avoid having to undergo restorative dental work. As important as these habits are to maintain, you also need to keep up with regular dental checkups. When you see your dentist for preventive care, you can have the benefits of professional scrutiny over your smile, and a detailed cleaning from your hygienist. Your examination can catch problems in their early stages, which can limit your risk for more complicated concerns. Your hygienist’s cleaning of your teeth can lead to the removal of tartar, and valuable support against the threat of future cavities.


True Or False: Your hygienist can remove tartar, a particularly tough substance on teeth that can stay stuck on teeth even when you brush and floss.

True Or False: If you have no issues with tooth pain or sensitivity, there is no chance that you have any tooth decay issues to worry about.

True Or False: Your dentist can check for any issues with your jaw that might be causing pain or limited movement.


True! Tartar can persist when you brush, and when you floss, but your hygienist has the tools and training necessary to save your teeth from this harmful substance.

False! You may have the early stages of a cavity without realizing it, but your dentist can spot this level of decay, and provide a dental filling to restore your tooth.

True! Your examination is not just a search for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Once common problem your dentist will check for is TMJ dysfunction, which can cause discomfort, and limited jaw mobility.
