Your smile is important to you, and it’s also important to us at Beveridge Dental in San Jose CA, since it’s our job to help keep it clean and healthy. We encourage all our patients, from newcomers to those who have been with us for years, to bring any and all questions they might have to their checkups.
In this article we’re going to describe some of the most common questions we get.
- How Can I Improve My Smile? This is one of the most common, and it’s a really good one. The answer is not going to be the same for every patient, of course. If you’re already in good dental health, we can talk about what cosmetic dentistry procedures may be best, like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. If your dental health has room for improvement, we can discuss what improvements we can make.
- What Should My Daily Dental Health Routine Be? Your at-home care is probably the most important part of your dental health regimen. We strongly recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste. Brush for at least two minutes, gently and thoroughly. Right after breakfast and just before bed are good times. Don’t forget to floss!
- Do I Have Any Dental Health Conditions I Should Know About? If you do, we’ll spot the signs and let you know, but it’s still good to ask. Think of it as a conversation-starter. If there are issues, we can talk about treatment plans.
- How Often Should I Have a Checkup? There is no hard-and-fast answer for this. As a rule of thumb, we recommend every six months. Some patients can go longer between checkups, while others may need to see us more often, especially if there are ongoing issues and treatment.
These are the most common, but we encourage you to bring your unique questions to every appointment. Patient education is an important part of what we do. People come to Beveridge Dental in San Jose CA from South San Jose, Los Gatos, Campbell, and Morgan Hill for family and cosmetic dentistry. Request your appointment today!
