Perhaps implant dentistry, or even the drilling of a cavity can be scary. Let Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offer 6 ways to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and physically before your big dental day.
First, remember Dr. Stephen Ratcliff is trained to provide the best care and comfort possible.
Second, take some time to relax and consider what you are anxious about. Take deep breaths in and slowly let them out as you weigh the reasons for and against taking these steps to a better you. Remember that many folks have been in your shoes and everything worked out fine. Especially all of our visitors who came in for restorative dentistry, our most popular service.
Third, know your medical history. You may be asked to fill out a medical history and medications form, so be sure you know what medications and supplements you are currently taking and review past hospitalizations and illnesses.
Fourth, have a dental plan. Come in for a thorough consultation. If we know all the dental work or cosmetic dentistry you want to get done, then we’ll know if combining any of it can save you time and money. We offer dental implants, dentures, porcelain veneers, Invisalign clear braces, and teeth whitening to name just a few.
Fifth, trust the outstanding staff at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to guide you through the before, during and after process. We’ve been doing this since 1990.
Sixth, our final and most important suggestion! Ask all the questions that you actually want answered before you have dental tools and gloved hands in your mouth!
