When you book at one of our dental practices for crooked teeth you probably have a lot of questions and want answers as soon as possible. That’s understandable. It’s useful to think ahead about what your dentist will need to know to assess and treat your teeth.
Generally your dentist will ask you about your medical history and then thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw, tongue, throat, sinuses, ears, nose and neck. You may also need an x-ray, depending on the condition of your teeth.
Your dentist will ask you some questions about your teeth, such as:
- What are you unhappy about?
- Do you have any pain?
- Do your crooked teeth create problems when you're eating?
- Do you have any problems eating?
Think about your answers to these questions before your appointment. Being prepared can speed up the diagnosis.
