If you are one of those who have been guilty of neglecting your oral hygiene and dental care all these years, then maybe this short, friendly note will serve as a useful reminder. Perhaps one of the reasons why you ran away before was because you may have been a little scared of the needle or drill. So, let this short, friendly note serve as a friendly reassurance that you have absolutely nothing to fear from the good dentist Columbus practice these days.
And if the dentist is an ethical gentleman or lady, he will be telling you these things anyhow. Well, of course the good dentist is ethical. Nevertheless, he or she will be more than willing to fill you in on all the things that you need to do at home to take care of your oral and dental hygiene. This will certainly happen after your long awaited visit to the dentist has come and gone. He or she will be telling you new things that you may not have been aware of before.
Like brushing your teeth after each and every meal you enjoy, not just brushing your teeth in the morning and later at night before bed. And did you know that these days, a cup of coffee in-between regular meals qualifies as a meal per se. And more than likely, you will be told to drop that can of soda habit, given that it is loaded with carbonated water and sugar that kills your teeth and gums. Finally, given all the modern technologies that the good dentist has at his or her disposal, necessary surgery and other procedures are relatively pain free these days.
You will learn this after your first checkup.
