A Few Things To Remember After A Treatment

Whether you come to us for teeth whitening, a filling, or otherwise, there are some things that are pretty much always true in terms of what you can expect afterwards. What might these be, you wonder, and why are we mentioning this? Well, our Southlake, TX team realizes that you may become very focused on the dental treatment you are about to receive and then, once you’re home, you may realize you’re not entirely sure about what should be happening, how you should be feeling, etc. Let us help.

#1: You Can Always Call Us

When in doubt after a dental treatment, our team reminds you that you are always free to call us. We know that particularly if it’s been a long time since you received dental care or if you have experienced a procedure that is brand new to you, it can be difficult to determine whether sensations and other post-treatment details are “normal” or not. Go ahead and contact us and let us know if you’re worried. We may be able to address your concerns over the phone or you may need to come in for a follow-up visit. In any case, we are here to help!

#2: Your Smile Doesn’t Love Being Treated

As you know, it is extremely important for you to keep your smile healthy, which sometimes means receiving dental treatments like fillings. In addition, you know that it’s perfectly safe to receive any treatment from our practice, from cosmetic to preventive to restorative care! However, that doesn’t mean your smile particularly loves being treated. Is it safe and important? Yes. Is it possible your smile will be a little bit sensitive, since we have aggravated your nerves every so slightly? Yes! Just remember that your nerves will settle down, everything will heal up, and your smile will feel normal again soon.

#3: Take It Easy And Follow Our Suggestions

You may think that you feel just fine after a dental treatment, so you figure you can just ignore our suggestions. However, this can be to your detriment! It may negatively affect your smile and the results of your procedure, it may negatively affect your ability to heal, and so on and so forth. Whether you come in for whitening, an extraction, or anything else, remember to simply abide by the post-treatment requirements we set forth, so you enjoy the best results possible!
