You may have heard that making a list of concerns before visiting your family doctor is important and time-saving. Well, doing the same thing can also help make your dental checkup be more productive as well. So, today, our dentist, Dr. Robert Doyle would like to share ways to help you make the most of your next dental appointment with Complete Dental Care.

Writing down your concerns before you come in means you won’t forget anything important while you are here. It allows us to evaluate any oral issues so that nothing is overlooked. Some of the things that might be important to include on your list are any of the following concerns you may have:

— If you are having issues with tooth sensitivity.

— If you notice that you are grinding your teeth in your sleep, or you wake up with a sore jaw.

— If you notice bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth.

— If you have found any sores in your mouth, even if they aren’t painful.

— If you have pain in a tooth or in your gums.

In addition, if you have not already informed us of any medical conditions you have, please let us know, and any medications you have begun taking for them. Medical conditions might include pregnancy, if you have dry mouth, or have diabetes, etc. This will help our team to give you the best care we can. Also, don’t forget to include any new supplements you have begun taking regularly.

And finally, please let us know if you have any questions about your oral health care. We want you to be able to give your mouth the attention it deserves in between visits. We are happy to review brushing and flossing techniques if needed, and also give you recommendations for oral care products to ensure that your at-home oral hygiene is most effective.

If you would like to know more or wish to schedule your next appointment with our dentist in Martins Ferry, Ohio, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 866-471-4028. We look forward to helping your smile receive the best care all year round!
