How to have the best dental visit

Having a positive and effective dental visit involves a combination of preparation and communication. Here are some tips from Tooth Booth to help you have the best dental visit:


Pre-Appointment Preparation:

Questions for the dentist or the hygienist? Write down any questions or concerns you may have about your oral health.Make a list of any medications you are taking and share it with your dentist.Have a light meal before an appointment, especially if you are getting freezing for dental procedures, you may have to delay your next meal.

Arrive Early:

Arriving early (especially in your first dental visit to Tooth Booth!) allows you to complete any necessary paperwork and relax before your appointment.

Communication with the Dental Team:

Be open and honest with your dentist about your oral health habits and any issues you may be experiencing.Inform the dental team about any changes in your medical history or medications.

Discuss anxiety:

If you feel anxious or have concerns about the procedures, discuss them with your dentist. They can provide information and options to make you more comfortable.If you experience dental anxiety, discuss comfort measures with your dentist, such as sedation options or listening to music during the appointment.

Regular check-ups and cleanings:

Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to catch and address issues early on. You could be recommended to have a dental cleaning every 3-4 months or every 6 months. Regular dental cleanings help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar, reducing the risk of dental issues. Missing cleanings could mean you may need a longer session in the upcoming hygiene appointment.

Follow Recommendations:

Pay attention to any recommendations or advice given by your dentist and follow through with recommended treatments or changes in oral care habits.Feel free to ask for a minute to note down the recommendations.

Excellent Home Care:

Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.Floss daily to remove plaque and debris between your teeth.(Remember, waterpik can’t replace string floss!)Continue with good oral hygiene practices at home to maintain the results of your dental visit.

Remember that dental visits are crucial for maintaining good oral health, and a proactive approach can help prevent more significant problems down the road. Open communication with your Tooth Booth dental team is key to a positive experience.
