What are common conversations when seeing dentist? Sorry for not making it clear. I am thinking about conversation involved with technical terms, for example, like tooth extraction, tooth implant. I am not sure if even my two examples are correct.

M.Karmy is joking, but it's a bit of a strange question, to be honest. Besides discussions about the state of our teeth, we would normally talk to a dentist the same way we would talk to anyone: about the weather, of course! Small talk is a skill that even native English speakers (myself definitely included) can have trouble with. There are even books written about it. Just talk about whatever you like! I wasn't kidding about the books: https://www.amazon.com/Fine-Art-Small-Talk-Conversation/dp/1401302262

there are many techniqual terms related to dentistry such as tooth extraction, implant, fixed or removable prosthesis, endodontics, periodontics, restoratives. for conversation, It depends on what your dentist sees what should be done.and what you need. fot example: your dentist may say that you have small caries in one of your teeth, in this case they will advice you to make a restorative filling for your tooth. if there is severe pain, they will advice you for endodontic treatment ( trating of pulp ). many missing teeth, removable appliance ( prosthesis). small number of missing teeth, fixed prosthesis. etc.
