How Can I Get the Most Out of My Six-Month Checkup?
posted: Jul 10, 2017.
If you have a six-month checkup quickly approaching, Dr. Alan Nix and our dental team have some tips that can help you get the most out of your appointment. That way you can have a positive as well as efficient dental experience when you come to Alan L. Nix DDS.
First, we recommend bringing a list of questions and oral concerns with you. This will help you remember what you wish to talk to our dental team about. It’s also recommended to mention anything like bleeding gums when you brush, pain or sensitivity in your smile, problems cleaning your teeth and gums, and even sores inside your cheeks, on your gums, on your tongue, on the roof of your mouth, or in your throat.
Second, we recommend telling us about any recent changes with your health. For example, if you are pregnant, it’s important to tell us so we can avoid taking X-rays and so we can look for certain smile conditions that come with pregnancy. Other health conditions you should mention include diabetes and dry mouth.
Third, find out what you can do better for your oral health. Dental technology, tools, and treatments constantly change and improve. There might be new ways you can clean your teeth and gums and better achieve your smile and oral health goals.
