Why We Take Your Dental History During Exams


Posted on 10/11/2021 by Evan Admin
Why We Take Your Dental History During ExamsThe privacy that surrounds our medical information is one of the most precious information we would like to protect, and those feelings certainly extend to our dental history. When you come in for an exam, you might wonder why we need to know everything that has gone on in your mouth, but there are very good reasons for that.

Reasons for Seeing Your Dental History


One primary reason why we need to see your dental history before an exam is so that we can know what has already been done to you in the past. Knowledge of any cavities, aversion to certain medicines, or work done on teeth is crucial so that we do not do similar work on your mouth again. When it comes to examinations or procedures that are more invasive, the more crucial it is that we have your dental history.

You might not remember every detail about the various surgeries or operations that have happened in your mouth, because that is what the dental history is for. It allows us to look over your record, see what pre-existing work exists, and if there are any concerns or worries for future work. For example, perhaps you are going to receive anesthetic for an examination or surgery. It is beneficial for our staff to know beforehand if you have any allergies to the anesthetic or if you have any conditions that would make us hesitant to put you under.

Overall, having your dental history allows us to best recommend what surgeries or routines you may need in the future, allow us to give you the most practical and helpful advice on how to maintain your own teeth, and allows us to avoid doing repeat procedures that would waste both your time and money. If you have any further questions about how we utilize your dental history, please feel free to contact our office and we will do our best to appease any concerns.
