 regular dental checkup preparations

Before your dental checkup, here are the preparations to be done by you:

  • Collect your health history information, type of medications and all doctor’s information.
  • In case you visited a dentist before, request your former dentist to transfer your records.
  • Be prepared to share your most important health concerns like pregnancy, special needs, diabetes, etc. Be open to talk about your dental anxiety.

Now let us discuss what is the general version of the process that every dentist follows:

1) X-rays

To examine the type of case and the teeth condition, the dentist requests it’s patient to have x-rays. It is one of the important parts of the check-up as it is the first step. Without an x-ray, dentists are almost clueless. X-rays are safe, so no need to worry.

2) Comprehensive Evaluation & Treatment

Along with reviewing the x-rays, dentists examine your teeth, gum, tongue to look for signs of gum disease, cavities and other abnormalities so that the dentist can start dental treatment. Once the problem is identified, the dentist instructs about the type of treatment, surgery (if needed). Teeth floss & polish can be done, in some cases, fluoride is required. Again, don’t worry fluoride is safe. Based on the dental case, dentists prescribe medicine and recommends home care techniques for better oral health.

3) Talks and discussions with a Dentist

You can take an opportunity to talk with the dentist. Talk about problems that you face after your treatment, check whether the condition has gotten better or not, see if there is pain or not. Always feel free to discuss the true condition with your dentist.

4) Next Appointment

Discuss surgery, ask about all prescribed medicines. Make payment and get the information about your next appointment and confirm the appointment date & time.

That’s all. Sounds easy and smooth, right?
