Are you nervous about some upcoming dental treatment? Let The Carrollton Dentist offer 6 ways to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and physically before your big dental day.
First, remember Dr. Melissa Rodriguez is trained to provide the best care and comfort possible.
Second, take some time to relax and consider what you are anxious about. Take deep breaths in and slowly let them out as you examine how the treatment will improve your dental health. Remember that many nervous patients have been in your shoes and have gotten through the treatment just fine. Especially all of our patients who came in for dental crowns, one of our most popular services.
Third, know your medical history. You may be asked to fill out a medical history and medications form, so be sure you know what medications and supplements you are currently taking and review past hospitalizations and illnesses.
Fourth, have a dental plan. Come in for a thorough consultation. If we know all the dental work or cosmetic dentistry you want to get done, then we’ll know if combining any of it can save you time and money. We offer sedation dentistry, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, gum disease treatment, and teeth whitening to name just a few.
Fifth, trust the passionate staff at The Carrollton Dentist to guide you through the before, during and after process. We’ve been doing this since 2003.
Sixth, our final and most important suggestion! Ask all your questions before you have dental tools and gloved hands in your mouth!
