A Checklist For Your Next Dental Appointment
Plan Your Personal And Work With The Appointment:
Many people don’t enjoy going to the dentist because their appointments are often scheduled amidst their busy schedule. When planning your appointment, consider how your day will be affected by the timing. Do you have lunch with a client or business professional afterwords? How about a public speaking event or a presentation? You may not feel up to it after your mouth and teeth have been worked on! Be sure to give yourself enough time and care to adjust after an appointment! This is why...
You Should Schedule Your Appointment In The Morning:
There are 3 reasons why scheduling your appointments in the morning works better! To start, your teeth are fresh and clean after your nightly and morning brushing. Two, it can be relieving to ‘get the dentist appointment ‘out of the way’ instead of dreading it throughout the day. Third, your dental appointment will more than likely include a nice cleaning! You’ll want to show off your pearly whites throughout the day!
Relieve Your Stress, Simply:
Avoid taking any paid medications preemptively to your visit. Consider alternative methods such as deep breathing or listening to calm music. Of course there are other methods, but it’s important that your dentist sees you without chemicals in your body.
Don’t be afraid to voice concerns or ask questions when visiting your dentist! We want to hear what you’re thinking, or know if you have any worries.
Make Sure To Bring Info:
Make sure to bring all the documents and information your dentist may need for your appointment, such as your I.D., insurance card, previous dentist information,etc.
Brush Your Teeth!!!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but alot of people arrive to their appointment without having brushed their teeth. Always, always, always, brush your teeth before an appointment. Please.
