When you don’t say anything during the consultation, the dentist assumes you understand what they are talking about. This assumption is very unsafe for your health and to their career. To avoid any complications before or after the procedure, ensure to speak out about any worries or queries you may have.

  • How long the dental operation will take to get finished
  • If you will need to redo the procedure in the course of time
  • What other alternatives you have to that particular procedure plus the cons and pros of each choice.
