When you come to Artistic Dentistry, Dr. Amir Nikraz and our dental team want you to have the best experience possible. To help you do just that, we encourage you to make the most out of your appointment.

The first thing we recommend is bringing a list of questions or concerns you might have. It’s best to write them down because sometimes the dental office can occupy your mind, making you forget your questions and concerns. It’s also important to mention anything like bloody gums when you brush, pain or sensitivity in the mouth, or even oral hygiene problems. It’s also important to mention any sores in the mouth or if you tend to grind your teeth at night.

The second thing we recommend is updating us on your medical history. This means you need to tell us about any medical conditions you have (like dry mouth or diabetes or if you’re pregnant) and about any medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking. Telling us about these things can help us give you the treatments you need as well as help us give you the tips you need to properly care for your oral health.

The third thing we recommend is asking us questions about what you can do better for your smile. The dental world is constantly shifting, changing, and improving, so there might be new-and-improved ways to keep your smile and oral health in tip-top shape.
