Do you have an upcoming dental appointment? If so, good for you! It’s a great step toward a strong, healthy, and even attractive smile. It’s important to get the most out of your dental visit so you can maintain your oral health and achieve your smile goals. To help you do so, Dr. Steven Rodriguez has some tips.

First, it’s best to make a list of any questions or concerns you might have. This way you don’t forget about them when you’re in the office. When you talk to us, make sure to mention any bleeding when you brush, pain or sensitivity, oral sores, problems with oral hygiene, or clenching and grinding habits.

Second, make sure your dentist knows about any medical conditions you have. It’s important to mention things like diabetes, dry mouth, and pregnancy because there are treatments and tips we can give you to help you. This also means you need to tell us about any medications, vitamins, and supplements you take.

Third, ask for ways you can better care for your smile. The dental world is constantly changing and improving, so there may be things available to help you keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.
