Having your dentist on your side is really important – especially if you want to enjoy good oral health for years to come. And while ‘white little lies’ are not that harmful, honesty is the best policy with your dentist.
At PS Dental Care, we want you to know that we are here to help you and that we will never judge the state of your teeth. Therefore, you have nothing to be afraid of. Our dentist in Soho is kind, compassionate and has experience in preventive dental care. Even if your teeth have problems, we will do our best to restore your oral health.
Your dentist in Soho needs to know everything about your health
You may have heard that there is a connection between your oral and your overall health. Indeed, conditions such as diabetes and gum disease are associated with gum disease and can affect your oral health significantly. Your dentist in Soho needs to know about any general or oral health problems you have encountered in the past. For instance, if you noticed blood while brushing your teeth, it’s important to alert your dentist. Lying about this can cost your oral health in the long run.
Don’t lie about your oral hygiene
If you don’t have a regular oral hygiene schedule, brushing and flossing your teeth just before visiting the dentist is not the way out of the problem you have created. Firstly, your dentist will be able to tell if you haven’t been taking good care of your teeth and gums because of the accumulation of tartar and other potential problems. Secondly, brushing your teeth aggressively just before your dental visit can cause problems with your gums. In any case, your dentist in Soho won’t judge you for not taking good care of your teeth. Instead, they will try to convince you that the only way to a healthy mouth is a thorough oral hygiene routine.
Fostering a good relationship with your dentist
While your dentist can tell everything about your mouth without prior knowledge, it’s really important to create a truthful relationship with them. Letting them know about problems you may be encountering will help them create a personalised and effective preventive treatment plan.
