If you are like most people, you do not look forward to going to the dentist and want to make the most of each visit. Trips to the dentist entail far more than a routine cleaning or a quick check for cavities. They are an important component of your oral health. Christensen Dental gives you the best treatment in town.

  • Bring a List of Questions With You

Make a thorough list of any questions you want to ask the dentist. Your dentist will gladly answer any questions you have about teeth, gums, sinus pain versus tooth pain, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and other tooth-related issues. Do not rely solely on the results of a quick Google search.

  • List Down Your Problems and Concerns

Have your teeth become cold-sensitive? Is your jaw clenched? Is there a specific tooth that hurts? Make a list of all your concerns and do not leave until you have spoken with your dentist about them. You will not be able to get all of your problems and concerns addressed in a single visit, but you can get a treatment plan in place to address them.

There are a few things you should tell your dentist. They may indicate a minor issue that can be resolved quickly or a more serious issue that requires immediate attention. Inform your dentist if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Gums that bleed
  • Mouth ulcers that do not heal
  • Pain or sensitivity
  • Clenched jaws
  • clenching your teeth
  • Brushing and flossing issues
  • Inform Your Dentist of Any Health Changes

Inform your dentist of any changes in your health or new medications you are taking. Your overall health is intertwined with your oral health, and certain diseases can also affect your teeth. Diabetes, for example, can have a significant impact on your gums and teeth. 

Some medications also have side effects that can affect the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Dry mouth is one of the more common side effects that affect oral health, which your dentist can help you with. A dryer mouth can lead to serious complications if left untreated. So give your dentist a list of all medications and supplements you use.

If you have any of these issues, please notify your dentist or our team at Christensen Dental and we will be happy to assist you with these dental issues. Book your appointment at (702) 331-2121 or visit us at 10521 Jeffreys St #200, Henderson, NV 89052.
