In taking proper care of your teeth, gums, and mouth, regularly seeing your dentist is just as important as brushing twice and flossing every day. That is why dental care experts continue to stress that you should visit the dentist frequently, every six months to be specific.
However, there can be certain aspects that prevent you from getting the most out of your dental visits. One of these issues involve the effectiveness of communication between you and your dentist.
A team of researchers from the University of Florida found out that ineffective communication can still lead to poor dental and oral health despite visiting the dental clinic regularly.
According to the findings of the study, the difference between the expertise of dentists and the limited knowledge of patients can create a communication barrier that keeps you from forming a great and effective dentist-patient relationship with your dental care partners.
