Before the consultation with the dentist, it is best to think about how you want to approach your problem, your budget and health issues.
By having a clear idea of what you want before the consultation, you will avoid any confusion during the different stages of your treatment.
It is recommended to take notes before your consultation.
During the consultation, the dentist will discuss your medical history and current treatments with you. For example, diabetes can lead to gum problems or anticoagulant treatment must be stopped before extraction.
The dental surgeon will then perform an oral examination that will allow him/her to detect:
• Possible cavities
• Prosthetics to be renewed
• Gum problems (periodontal disease)
• Problems in the temporomandibular joints.
In order to refine the examination, the dental surgeon may take X-ray pictures (unit or panoramic).
The consultation should also be an opportunity to perform urgent procedures such as scaling, a crown to be glued back on or a small filling to be made.
A visit to the dentist is the perfect time to:
• Share your anxieties
• Explain your expectations
• And ask any questions about your oral health.
It is recommended to consult a dentist every 6 months.
