Taking care of your teeth means more than brushing and flossing. For complete care, it’s important to visit a dentist every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning. Here are 2 things to follow before going to your Dental Appointment
- Brush and floss
It is always important to brush and floss a couple of hours before you go to the dentists, but don’t overdo it. Just go about as normal. It just helps to clear everything up and to keep your breath fresh for the dentist.
- Try not to eat beforehand
This is more for courtesy than anything else, but if you have eaten anything beforehand, particularly if it is rather pungent, the flavor and residue may still be in your mouth even after brushing. If you feel like it, you can always treat yourself to a nice lunch after having visited the dentist, just try not to eat for at least an hour beforehand.
