Keeping a regular dental care schedule is important for everyone, because it is usually like car maintenance or home repair projects in that most people do not worry about it until something is going wrong. Our staff is here to help each patient and their children keep a regular dental care schedule throughout the calendar!
First, it is important for our dental care patients to keep to a daily schedule of brushing and flossing, and this could include setting little reminders such as notes near the restroom sink or on top of clothes dressers. Any time you plan to travel, be sure to include dental care products with your belongings so the schedule is maintained and the risk of tarter, plaque and other issues is kept to a minimum.
Next up, be sure to ask you dentist about keeping a regular routine of check-ups that include a fluoride rinse and cleaning, as these are the meetings that help reduce any chance that teeth and gums may need surgery to repair. There are different requirements for each patient, so while each appointment should follow a routine, it is also the best time to ask particular questions a patient has about anything related to their dental care.
In any situation where it may be required to have surgery, such as pulling a tooth or filling a cavity, the dental care schedule will probably change up a bit. These sort of procedures are usually required when the daily schedule gets missed out on, or when a patient has difficulty keeping up with eating and drinking things that promote good dental care. As soon as there are toothaches or sudden pains, a dentist should be consulted immediately to address the pain and set up a plan to prevent future concerns from coming up.
Overall, a dental health schedule is all about keeping on top of daily brushing and regular visits. To set up an appointment, please go here or contact our Milwaukie,OR dental office . In the case of a severe pain, contact us immediately to determine if dental surgery is required.
