What to expect at the Dolton, IL dentist?
Patients who have ‘put off’ going to the dentist for several years may find that they are anxious because they do not know what to expect. Many people, especially those prone to dental anxieties, will continue to put off going to the dentist because it is an ‘unknown.’ Here are some tips on how to prepare for your first visit with our Dolton, IL dental team and what to expect at your first visit.
What to do before your visit?
-Get plenty of rest! A good night’s sleep is recommended!
-Wear clothing that makes you comfortable. The more comfortable and relaxed you are, the better the appointment will be.
-Prepare a list of medications and vitamins you are currently taking.
-Avoid caffeine and sugar before your appointment.
-Write down any questions, pains, or concerns you are having. Many patients get nervous and forget what they meant to ask!
What to expect?
- A member of our dental team will perform a thorough examination. They will be looking at any current issues, and also looking for potential issues. If they do find cavities or other oral health problems, they will bring them to your attention and work with you to develop a treatment plan.
-Our dental team will also examine the bone, teeth, and gums.
-You will receive a thorough cleaning as well!
