If you have a dental checkup coming up, then it’s time to start thinking about your appointment preparation. That’s right—You can prepare for your appointment! In fact, appointment preparation is recommended because it can help you feel more calm and comfortable in the dental chair. So, our dentist, Dr. Vera Matshkalyan, recommends preparing for your appointment by doing the following things:

-Get plenty of rest the night before your appointment. Letting your brain rest helps improve your mood and reduce your anxiety.

-Avoid eating or drinking sugary or caffeinated foods or drinks before your appointment. This is recommended because sugar and caffeine increase your energy and anxiety, which can make your heart race during your appointment.

-Thoroughly clean your teeth and gums before your visit. The cleaner your smile is, the less time our dental team needs to spend cleaning it.

-Tell our dental team about any dental nerves or anxiety you have before your appointment. This is important because if we know how you feel, we can do everything we can to help you feel more comfortable during your visit.
