You may have your summer and spring visits all sorted out. You may even know how to go about prepping to come in for your autumn checkups and cleanings with our Riverside, CA team! However, we cannot help but wonder: In the dead of winter, when the temps are at their lowest and your skin is potentially at its most parched, are you ready to head on in? Or, are you thinking that, though it’s never occurred to you before, perhaps some tips from your Riverside dentist might do you some good? It just might be time to find out!

Load Up On Lip Balm

Remember that when you come in for a visit with our team, in order to access your teeth and other tissues, you will be stretching your lips! So, one thing you don’t want to do is show up with a dry pout. Instead, simply take the following tip from your Riverside dentist to heart: Use lip balm the night before and just before your visit. If your lips have been very dry, start using the treatment a week in advance! It makes for a very comfortable dental visit.

Brush Before We See You, Please!

Before you come in for any type of visit with your Riverside dentist, we suggest you brush your teeth. Think you’ve got some food stuck? Go ahead and floss! A clean mouth is like a clean slate, providing us with the ability to quickly get down to essential care, examining, cleaning, or treating your smile! We thank you in advance!

Gather Up Those Questions

Question for us? We expect them! So, before you come in, take some time to review anything that’s been on your mind in the recent past in terms of your oral health or other smile-related details. By jotting them onto a piece of paper, into your phone, etc., you’ll have them within reach, so you can cover each one.
