Practice Consistent Oral Hygiene

To have a successful dental checkup, it is essential to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and use an antimicrobial mouthwash. Following these habits can help keep your teeth and gums healthy and minimize potential problems.

Remember that consuming too much sugar can lead to tooth decay and other dental issues, which can complicate your checkup. Instead, choose nutritious snacks like fruits and vegetables and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Prioritizing your oral health is crucial to having a positive dental experience.

Dental Insurance Verification

If you have dental insurance, verify your coverage before the appointment. Understanding your insurance benefits can help you plan for any potential out-of-pocket expenses and make informed decisions about your dental care.

Review Your Medical History

Before your checkup with Dr. Ted, take some time to review your medical history and any medications you may be taking. This will help our professional team better understand your overall health and potential risks or concerns. Be sure to mention any changes since your last appointment, even if you think they're insignificant. Bring your insurance card, photo ID, and other necessary documentation to your appointment. This helps expedite the check-in process and ensures accurate record-keeping.
