A little fun for Confidental Clinic patients to see how good your memory is!
In June 2015, we published the very first dental blog on our website. Since then, hopefully, we have provided our local Surbiton patients with a wide range of information, helping them to become more aware of dental issues and how to prevent them.
In the spirit and tradition of the end of year quiz, we thought we would see if our patients could remember some key facts that have been mentioned several times whilst writing these blogs.
Questions follow, with answers towards the bottom of the page. How well will you do?
- Name 2 types of gum disease
- How often should you change your toothbrush?
- What is the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK?
- Are you actually asleep during dental sedation?
- Name the two available options if you have an infection in the root canals of your teeth
- How often should you see a dentist for a check up?
- Why do we examine your cheeks and tongue during your checkups?
- Can dentists diagnose mouth cancer?
- Should you brush your teeth immediately after eating?
- What are sometimes described as ‘false fingernails for the teeth’?
- What is ‘bruxism’?
- (Well, there are 12 days of Christmas!) Name the process where the bone and titanium implant fuse, following a dental implant placement?
We hope that you enjoyed our little quiz and that it acted as a refresher in your quest for the best oral health possible. We are always happy to cover any topic that you are interested in, within the dental realm, and you can contact us via our website if you have any questions you would like us to cover in our dental blog.
There will probably be one more blog before our Christmas break, but allow us to wish all of our patients a Merry Christmas from all the team at the Confidental Clinic in Surbiton.
(Please note that we will be closed during public holidays. If you do have a dental emergency during this time, please contact us in the usual way on 020 8399 1291 where further information about emergency dental care will be available).
