Many people come to our Cary dentist office unprepared and as a result they do not benefit from their visit as much as they could have. Here are a few recommendations for getting the most from your dental visit.
Make A List Of Any Questions or Concerns
It is helpful to prepare any questions about your dental health and overall oral hygiene before your visit. Make sure you let us know if you feel pain in any area of your mouth, if your gums are sore, or if you are experiencing any bleeding so we can make sure that your teeth are healthy.
Make Sure Your Dental Records Are Up To Date
It is also very important to make sure that all of your dental records are up to date. Let us know of any current medicine you are taking, as well as any issues you have had in the past with your teeth.
Talk With Your Children About What To Expect
If you are taking a child to the dentist, make sure they have an idea of what it will be like. This can help them be less nervous or scared about going to the dentist. You can easily introduce your children to the dentist through books, or just by talking with them about what it will be like.
