(HealthDay News) -- Good dental care protects your teeth, and helps prevent other health problems. So, it's important to talk to your dentist about how to take proper care of your teeth.
Here are questions to ask your dentist, courtesy of the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
What kind of toothbrush is best for my teeth and gums?
Do I have specific problems with my teeth and oral health that need watching?
How do I floss properly?
Should I use any special instruments to clean my teeth, such as an electric toothbrush?
Should I use any special rinses or mouth washes?
