If you think you’re a smarty when it comes to dental care, then it’s time to test your knowledge! The more you know about dental care in Houston, Texas, the more your oral health will benefit. So, our Smiley Dental Houston team encourages you to test your knowledge by taking this test:

Question: How often should I visit my dentist?
Answer: It’s very important to visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. If you avoid these appointments, your smile could easily fall victim to tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues.

Question: How safe are dental X-Rays?
Answer: Because of the advances in dental technology, dental X-Rays are very safe. They only focus on one part of your body and they only require the use of small amounts of radiation. Also, the federal law requires that X-Ray machines are checked for accuracy and safety every two years.

Question: I’m scared of the dental office. What should I do?
Answer: Tell your dentist and dental team about your dental fears. If we know about your anxiety, we will be able to accommodate your needs and help you feel comfortable in the dental chair. We also encourage you to consider the use of sedation dentistry.

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 many dental issues. They are great products for those who have weak teeth and are vulnerable to tooth decay.

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.
