Things to know before visiting the dentist in Alexandria

If you are barrelling through a busy week and you are thinking about postponing your appointment to the dentist – think again. Not seeing the dentist for a few days after your scheduled appointment due to other commitments is ok, but making a habit out of it and avoiding the dentist for months on end is not ok and can potentially harm your teeth and oral health.

At Healthy Smile Centre, we appreciate that you have a busy schedule and we want to make your visit to the dentist in Alexandria a quick and easy one. To help us ensure that we are not wasting your time, please take into consideration the following steps.

If you are a new patient, give us as much information as possible

If you are a new patient, chances are that we don’t have any information on your teeth and gums nor any x-rays. To avoid delays and ensure the best service possible, we suggest to check with your previous dentist and send us any x-rays prior to your next dental appointment with us. If that’s not possible, our dentist in Alexandria will take new x-rays of your teeth, which will help accurately evaluate the condition of your mouth.

Don’t try to make up for brushing and flossing

If you haven’t been brushing or flossing your teeth diligently prior to your next dental visit, do not try to make up for it the day before your appointment. Over-brushing and over-flossing can actually harm your teeth, irritate your gums and make the cleaning procedure altogether uncomfortable. Ideally, you should floss once every day, but even if you have failed to do so, we will remove all the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums safely and effectively.

Let us know in advance about a specific issue

If you are concerned about a particular matter and would like it to discuss it before your scheduled appointment, please call us before you come in, so that we can be prepared. If we don’t know about your problem in advance, it can be difficult for us to find time for additional treatments.
