Notes to Bring to Our Office When Something in Your Mouth Hurts

Posted on 5/10/2019 by Dr McMurray
Notes to Bring to Our Office When Something in Your Mouth HurtsIt is normal when something in your mouth hurts to call our office and make an appointment. That is the first step, but there is something else that you can do to help us give you the best care possible. You can make some notes about what is happening when your mouth hurts. The notes can over some areas that will make it easier to help you overcome the pain you feel.

When You Have Never Been Before

If you have never been to our office, it is important to provide us with a history of your oral health. This history includes any family history as well as your own. Information such as when you last visited a dentist, where and when that was and what type of dental procedures you have had done in the past are helpful. Many people think that they will remember all this information, but without bringing some notes, things are often left out that can help us.

Notes About the Pain

To diagnose the cause of pain in the mouth, we need to know about the pain. Bring notes that include information about when the pain started, if you did anything that caused the pain to start and where the pain is. The more details you can provide about the pain, the easier it is for us to find the cause of the pain and determine what we can do to help.

You may also want to let us know what you have done to try to manage the pain. This includes any pain medication, oral anesthetics and other treatments. Notes can show when you took any medication and how much. They can also tell how effective the home treatment was.

Many people may think bringing notes to our offices when their mouth hurts are not worth the effort. They think that if there is any information, we need that we will ask or that they will remember to tell us. This can lead to missing important information that could make it easier to diagnose and treat the cause of the pain. Everyone in our office and every patient wants to find the simplest, easiest and fastest way to stop the mouth from hurting and notes can help accomplish that.

Contact our office to speak with one of our dental professionals about any oral health questions you have.
