How to Get the Most Out of Your Dental Appointment

You take good care of your oral hygiene on a daily basis with regular brushing and flossing. You follow the recommended two visits to your dentist each year for examinations and cleanings. But are you getting the most out of your dental appointment?

Let’s take a look at the following tips to make sure you are taking full advantage of your time with the dentist at your next appointment with your dentist in Fairfax, VA.

Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Next Dental Appointment

  1. All of those questions you think of between your regular exams? Jot them down and bring them along to the dentist for your next appointment. You can finally get the answers you have been wondering about all this time.
  2. If you have been slacking on the brushing and flossing, brushing twice as hard right before your appointment is not going to make up for past neglect. In fact, you might even hurt your gums in the process!
  3. If your dentist is recommending treatment, you want to know the “why” behind it, and it’s tough to remember the details after you leave your appointment. Take notes during your appointment. If you don’t have anything to write with, ask your dentist to email you the details of your conversation.
  4. If it has been an embarrassingly long time since you flossed, it is important that your dentist be aware of that fact. The answers to other questions too will enable your dentist to make an accurate assessment of your oral health. Be honest!
