If it’s been awhile since you’ve seen a dentist don’t wait any longer. Maybe you’ve moved recently and you haven’t had time to find a new dental home or time has gotten away from you and you’ve just realized how long it has been. Whatever the reason, now is the time to get back on track.
Dentists have seen it all so there’s no need to hesitate because of the state of your dental health. Your dentist is there to make you comfortable and provide the service that you need to achieve and maintain good oral health. If you are anxious about the appointment don’t hesitate to say so. Things have changed in the dental office. A warm blanket, a pillow or soothing music are some of the amenities that are available to make the patient experience more relaxing. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is still an option and now there are several types of oral sedation that you and your dentist can consider.
If you’re transferring from one dentist to another arrange for your dental records to be sent ahead. The dental chart contains detailed information about every treatment you have received and when each procedure was done. This data will provide your new dentist with an accurate account of your oral health history. X-rays are an important part of your dental records. Your new dentist will need them to use for future reference.
