How do you spend your time with us when you come in for a visit? If you’re someone who has dental implants replacing missing teeth, then we would like to cover a few things you might not be doing when you come in for visits that could absolutely be benefitting both your experience and your smile. Remember, the greater your education regarding your teeth and implants, the greater your potential level of success and oral health!
#1: Ask Us For Demos
When you see our team for a visit, it’s a wonderful time to ask for demonstrations for your smile, particularly if you have questions about your dental implants. If you wonder about your brushing technique or flossing or you just need help with one detail, be vocal about it! We will show you just what to do.
#2: Ask Us Questions
Have questions about your smile and your dental implants? Ask us during visits with us. Whether you think it’s a very basic question or something more advanced that you may even be having trouble wording correctly, just let us know! Feeling informed is always worthwhile.
#3: Tell Us About Your Experiences
When we ask you how you’ve been doing and how your dental implants are, don’t feel compelled to respond with a quick stock response, such as, “Great!” We really do want to hear what’s been going on with your oral health. If you’ve noticed changes or have had any type of experience that’s out of the ordinary, let us know. We can tell you whether it’s very common or we may investigate further to ensure all is just fine.
