How do you choose your dentist?

Toothache is one of the most unbearable pains a person can experience.

We’ve all experienced it at least once in our lives and we certainly don’t want to feel it again.

Curia is the most commonly blamed “villain”. In order to successfully avoid the occurrence of a toothache, it is mandatory to take daily and careful care of the whole teeth by using a suitable toothpaste and flossing after every meal.

Another important aspect of preventing problems in the oral cavity is a dental check-up every 6 months.

How do you choose which dentist to go to?

By following some simple rules:

  • Location – dental offices are often conveniently located very close to areas inhabited by many people to serve the surrounding community.

It is most comfortable to look for the dentist’s office in your neighborhood and inquire about the quality of services of that doctor. If you don’t find a practice in your neighborhood, don’t worry, widen your search area and you will surely find one that suits your needs.

  • Office hours – Most dentists have an 8-hour day, from 8am to 4pm.

However, this schedule coincides with the work schedule of many of us.

Fortunately, there are doctors who work by appointment after 5pm or on an emergency basis at all hours.

You can always phone the surgery to find out the doctor’s hours and make an appointment.

  • Patient opinion – most of the time the patient knows best what they are talking about, and as far as the dentist is concerned you should take into account the opinion and experience of those who have already been treated by the doctor you want to go to.

If you are told only negative experiences, it is best to look for another dental practice.

  • Cleanliness of the waiting room and surgery – when you go to a dentist’s surgery, check carefully at the entrance how clean the place is. If the floors are dirty, the bin is full and there is no soap in the bathroom it is best to leave and not go back.

A doctor or landlord who doesn’t keep to the simple rules of hygiene will also disregard the rules of sanitation and antisepsis during procedures, and you can end up with serious infections and illnesses.

  • Sterile instruments – pay close attention to the instruments your dentist uses.

If you notice that he or she is not using needles or other instruments fresh out of a sealed package, you can get up and leave the office without any problems. Don’t compromise on your health!

Your dentist can be your best friend and can help and advise you to keep your teeth beautiful and healthy.

All you have to do is find the right doctor for your needs and visit him or her at least once a year.
