Your annual six-month checkup with Dr. Margaret L. Romeo at Margaret L. Romeo, DMD in Macclenny, Florida, should be something you look forward to, not something you dread.

However, a lot of people don’t enjoy their routine checkups. There are a number of reasons for that, and today we’ll look at some advice on how you can enjoy your checkups and visits with our team.

Dental anxiety

The most common reasons people don’t enjoy a dental visit is due to dental anxiety. This is a real problem that few people realize can be addressed through sedation dentistry, wherein a patient is put under a certain amount of sedation in order to relax them for the procedure.

Bad oral health

Another reason people don’t enjoy the dentist is because they’ve been slacking on keeping up their oral health, and don’t want to go in and find out they have cavities to be filled, or other oral health problems. The best way to combat this, obviously, is to practice good oral health every day. Brushing twice a day, flossing once, and using mouthwash are all easy things to do that’ll boost your oral health and make sure you have nothing to dread when coming in for your annual appointments.

We’re here to help you have the best oral health possible, which is why we recommend you come in every six months. There’s no reason to not enjoy your time here. If you have any questions, or need to schedule an appointment, call us today at 904-259-5007.
