We know the dentist can be a scary time. To make things a little easier we decided to write this article talking about the five things you can do before your dentist visit to make it go as smoothly as possible. These are simple tricks that can make your experience less scary and help get you to look forward to coming to the dentist.
Pay Attention to Problems Between Appointments
One of the biggest things that you can do to make your dental visit go as smoothly as possible is to pay attention to dental problems between appointments. If a tooth started acting up let the dentist know (even if it isn’t acting up currently). This could prevent some major problems in the future and could save you thousands in the long run.
Write down any questions you have before the visit
We all do it, we think of a ton of questions before our appointment and then promptly forget to ask all of them. Our recommendation is to write down these questions and ask them to the staff. They are extremely knowledgeable and are happy to answer anything you throw at them.
Be Honest About Dental Phobias and Anxiety
If you are afraid of needles let us know! Our team is experienced in helping patients from all backgrounds and has some great options including sedation for those who have dental phobias. Be open about it and we are more than happy to help create a solution for you.
Care for Your Teeth Between Appointments
Floss your teeth! You know we harp on your every time you come in for not flossing. This is your time to shine, take that extra step, and prevent big problems in the future by flossing daily. Also, don’t forget to brush twice a day and follow any other directions your dentist gives.
Brush and Floss before your visit
Before you come in for your appointment make sure you have brushed and flossed your teeth. This will save tons of cleaning time and will allow our team to accurately diagnose any problems that may arise.
