How to Make Your Next Dental Checkup Go Off Without a Hitch

If you haven’t been to the dentist’s office in a while, coming in for a checkup may make you a little bit anxious. While a good dentist is always happy to see you, you might find yourself looking into ways to make your next preventive visit a little bit easier.

Thankfully, dental checkups really aren’t all that difficult; and if you keep just a few things in mind it becomes even easier. If you’re curious, here’s what you can do to make your next appointment go off without a hitch.

Focus on the Appointment

When you show up for your checkup, your dentist is taking time out of their busy day to help you; the least you can do is to reciprocate that. When you show up for your checkup, try to put your phone on silent and home in on what your dentist is telling you.

Prepare Questions

While a dental checkup is an opportunity for your dentist to take a look at what’s going on with your teeth, that’s far from all it’s good for. It’s also a chance to talk to an experienced professional about anything that could be bothering you. It could be a good idea to think about any questions about your dental hygiene, any new medications you’re on, and problems you think you may have about your dental hygiene.

Be Honest

Dentists are smart. They can get a good sense of how rigorous you are with oral hygiene just by looking at your teeth. And yet, patients still insist on lying to their dentists.

The best thing to do is to just be honest. This allows your dentist to give you accurate advice based on what you may be doing wrong with your dental hygiene, and to help you get the smile that you’re hoping for.
