Cosmetic dentist hoffman estatesAt Best Dental Spa, Dr. Dhara Patel is here to help you improve and maintain your best smile for many years to come. We emphasize patient education because we believe that an informed patient is a healthier patient. If you have any questions pertaining to your dental health, do not hesitate to call our office or ask us during your routine dental exams. To make the most out of your visit, consider asking the following questions during your routine dental appointment at our Hoffman Estates dental office:

How can I improve my oral hygiene?

Your oral hygiene directly impacts your overall health. This is why we pay close attention to your teeth, gums, and jawbone during your routine dental appointments. Typically, patients will have their teeth thoroughly cleaned during oral health and wellness visits. Our skilled hygienists will remove any plaque or tartar buildup surrounding your gum line. This prevents dental concerns like gum disease and tooth decay from developing. Your hygienist can answer any questions you have about improving your oral hygiene. They can tell by the buildup on your teeth which areas in your smile are in need of extra brushing and flossing during your at-home hygiene routine. Ask them to let you know how you can improve your at-home hygiene routine to prevent future dental concerns. They can also offer advice on proper flossing techniques, how to brush your teeth with an electronic toothbrush, or what ingredients to look for in a good mouthwash.

I have a dental concern. What are my treatment options?

Informing your dentist about any dental concerns that you have been experiencing is an important part of your routine exams. If you’ve experienced any toothaches, tension headaches, jaw pain, or gum bleeding outside of the dentist’s office, make sure to let them know so they can factor those symptoms into your treatment plan. After examining your teeth, gums, and jawbone, your dentist will offer a customized treatment plan to address your needs. At Best Dental Spa, there is rarely a dental concern that we cannot treat in our Hoffman Estates dental office. Dr. Patel offers general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry services to meet the needs of all of her patients. She is happy to inform you on your treatment options and let you know what to expect every step of the way.

What are your cosmetic dentistry recommendations?

Following your exam, you may consider asking your dentist for their cosmetic dentistry recommendations. Whether you want to address minor dental blemishes or you want to achieve a complete smile makeover, Dr. Patel has the expertise needed to help you create your dream smile.
