Whether you have a routine check-up, require professional dental cleaning or require an advanced dental procedure, here are some things you need to consider and prepare for before your every dental appointment.
1. It is important to confirm your appointment if possible 24-hours in advance.
2. In case you are a new patient, it is advised to transfer your dental and medical records from your previous dentist to your new dentist.
3. It is advised to clean your mouth before a dental check-up. This includes brushing your teeth and flossing before your dental visit.
4. It is considered rude to arrive for your dental appointment late. Reaching a few minutes before your appointment allows you to complete the required forms, get the know the office staff and relax before your appointment.
5. In case you are a new patient, you should provide your dentist with your previous medical history and dental records, details of your dental insurance, updating your dentist about your medication and recent health developments.
6. You should discuss all your dental problems and oral health issues with your dentist. Discussion these beforehand helps your dentist to find an issue much more easily and accordingly take corrective action and prescribe treatment. You should also ask your dentist about any queries or doubts you might be having about your dental and oral health.
7. In case you are experiencing any anxiety during your dental appointment, feel free to inform your dentist. Your dentist will work with you and help you find a solution to help you relax during your dental treatment and procedure.
