So, you’re heading to the dentist this week? You should know that you are miles ahead of some people. Some have no idea how to find a good dentist and others have found what but just can make even the most affordable dentist work. But you’ve got your appointment and you are headed to your dentists office this week to veneers, a teeth cleaning, implants, it doesn’t matter. Regardless of what you are headed to the dentist for, there are a few things you should do during the week of for preparation.
Assess your happiness with your teeth
If you are unhappy with any part of your teeth, now is the time to really take note of it. Maybe you are part of the nearly 20% of people who don’t show their smile when they smile. Maybe you’ve recently realized you are part of the 50% of Americans over 30 who have periodontitis. Maybe you just have untreated cavities. After all, around 25% of people do. Make a list of things you are unhappy with so that your dentist can help you work on them. If you aren’t intentional about it, you may wind up at the dentist getting very little accomplished. Squeeze the most out of every dental visit. Even if your just looking for a professional teeth whitening dentist, if your dentist doesn’t offer that service, he can refer you to someone who does.
Test your teeth
Eat foods that will really test the strength of your teeth before you go. This means really cold ice cream, really hot soup and maybe even a giant candy bar. You should also try brushing vigorously to see if there is every any blood. Gum disease becomes more prevalent in the 30s and 40s and its good to head to your dentist with an idea of what may be going awry. The idea is to put your teeth through the ringer and see how they fare.
Get a budget together
You could be hit with a big bill when you go to the dentist, so what in with an idea of how much you can afford to spend. Americans spend around 1.4 billion each year on teeth whitening and billions more on general dentist care. Now is a good time to decide if you can truly afford a professional teeth whitening dentist or if you should stick to the structural and leave out the cosmetic.
