Think about what you feel like when you don’t eat for a while. Now, think about what you feel like when you are getting really, really hungry, your stomach is rumbling, and you’re doing something that causes you a little bit of stress. Not a wonderful sensation? We didn’t think so! Your Moreno Valley dentist would like to remind you to eat before you come in for your dental care! “Really?” you might think to yourself, “I thought I was supposed to skip snacks and meals before visits!” Nope. Not true! (We’ve got additional details ready for you).

Unless We Tell You Otherwise

It’s entirely possible that your Moreno Valley dentist will suggest that you do not eat before you come in for your visit in particular instances. These will likely include if you’re receiving a certain type of dental sedation or if you are coming in for oral surgery. Remember that there are such exceptions, so pay attention to the instructions for special visits.

Generally Speaking

In general, your Moreno Valley dentist will encourage you to go ahead and enjoy your usual eating schedule even if you have a visit planned with us for the day. Remember all of that stuff about how not-so-great you can feel when you don’t eat something? These are definitely feelings that will not make your dental visit a good one. Instead, avoid feeling antsy, famished, tired, stressed, etc., by having a nice, light meal before we see you (one that is higher in protein and lower in simple/refined carbs and sugars is best). Have questions about this? Just call us up!
