You may think that following up with your routine dental visits is enough to ensure that your oral health is up to par. While this certainly will help keep your smile healthy, if you really want to get your money’s worth, then you have to take an invested interest in the health of your teeth and gums. Here are some ways you can get the most from your next trip to the dentist:
1. Write down any questions you have
Want to find out why your gums are always bleeding or the cause of your tooth sensitivity? If you don’t ask you’ll never know. While we can often catch dental problems during your routine exam, the best way to ensure that you’re getting the most from your next dental visit is to ask any questions you have about your smile or address any concerns you might have.
2. Ask how you can improve your oral health
The best way to promote a healthier smile is to make sure you are doing everything you possibly can to care for your teeth and gums. Because dentistry is always changing, you want to make sure you are giving your smile the best treatment at all times. This includes being up-to-date on the best dental products, as well. Talk to use about ways you can improve your dental hygiene.
3. Update medical history
You might not realize it but your general health also affects your oral health. This means we need to know about any changes to your medical history so we can handle your dental needs accordingly. Common disorders like diabetes can cause serious dental damage, so it’s important to alert your dentist to any changes to your overall health.
4. Ask about financial and payment plan options
We all know that there are times when money is tight and paying for dental care can seem daunting. However, this is the perfect time to talk to us about any special discounts we are offering, as well as payment plans and types of insurance we accept. We would be happy to work with you to give you the smile you want without it burning a hole in your pocket.
