Write Down Your Oral Health Needs and Bring Them to Your Dentist

Now that the excitement of the championship game is over, you might have a little more time to devote to your tasks. Bring your current level of excitement to your healthcare with an appointment with your dental provider. Start with a cleaning and examination to determine your current needs and while you are here, discuss all of the things that are affecting your daily life. It can be helpful to keep a journal of your needs before your visit so that you have a handy notebook to give to your dentist at E-Care Dentistry in Olathe, KS.

This approach has multiple benefits, as you can track any signs or symptoms in real time. Describe any feeling as well as the time when you experience certain sensations. These can be important in receiving a diagnosis in an instance such as dentin sensitivity. Note cosmetic changes you would like to change, as well, so that we can talk about all of your options. Schedule a time to bring home the dental trophy!

Schedule Your Appointment for a Dental Baseline

Your first step in improving your oral health is with a checkup with a qualified dental provider. This visit gives you the tools you need to keep your home hygiene at a high level by noticing areas that you may unconsciously miss. Even with diligent brushing for an appropriate amount of time, certain parts of your mouth can start to accumulate plaque and tartar. During your checkup, you will receive a cleaning to remove the bacterial buildup from between your teeth and along your gumline. Experience a cleaner mouth for fresher breath and protect your enamel from decay!

Bring Your Smile Journal for Additional Concerns

While you are in the office, discuss all of your oral health needs. Your smile journal can help in these times as you might minimize the importance of your concerns when speaking with a provider. Bring your notes with you to the appointment so that you do not forget or gloss over any of your concerns. This can be as simple as texting yourself any time you experience a symptom. This can also help you to notice any commonalities between instances, which is helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of dentin sensitivity.
