Investing in Your Dental Care

Dental Health and Basic Dental Care

When you invest in something, you want to get the most out of it. You know your dental care is something worth investing in because you want healthy teeth and gums for your entire life, but are you maximizing your investment? Do you get everything you can out of each dental visit? If not, you should be. As with most things in life, it comes down to communication. Talk to your dentist about the things that have impacted your oral health since your last visit. If you are not sure exactly what your dentist needs to know to keep your teeth shiny and healthy all year long, use this list as your guide to maximizing your dental care investment:

Talk to Your Dentist – The better you communicate what is happening with your oral health, the better your dentist can care for you. Write down any questions or concerns you have and take the list with you to the dentist. If you have experienced any of the following oral issues, tell your dental care professional:

  1. A mouth sore that doesn’t heal. One of the first signs of oral cancer is a mouth sore that doesn’t heal. Early detection is the surest way to get effective treatment and protect your health.
  2. Bleeding gums when brushing. Bleeding gums is an early sign of gum disease.  Don’t neglect to tell your dentist—early treatment can save your teeth and gums.
  3. Sensitive teeth.  Sensitive teeth are caused by exposed nerves, leading to uncomfortable sensations. Treatments are available to reduce discomfort or repair damaged teeth as needed. Tooth sensitivity is also a sign of cracked teeth, broken fillings, or cavities.
  4. Brushing or flossing problems. Broken teeth, sensitive gums, leaky fillings, and even arthritis can affect your ability to properly care for your teeth. If you are having difficulty  with basic dental care, such as brushing and flossing, tell your dentist.
  5. Teeth grinding or jaw clenching. Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw is a habit typical to some people’s sleep patterns. It can cause the protective enamel of the teeth to wear down, leading to long-term damage. Talk to your dentist if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw—there are solutions.

Tell Your Dentist About Your Medical History – Make sure your dentist is aware of past and present health conditions and any disease that you may be struggling with, since many diseases can impact your oral health.

List Your Medications and Supplements – Certain medications, vitamins, and supplements can have side effects that may impact your dental care. Make a list of all your medications, vitamins and supplements—prescriptions and over-the-counter—so your dentist can help you adjust your dental care plan to suit your needs.

Budget for Dental Care – You may have an affordable dentist, but when the budget gets tight, you still may be tempted to skip a visit or two. Skipping dental care visits is not the best way to save money on your dental care. Instead, talk your dental team about affordable dental options and payment plans that may be available.
