Patients ‘should be educated about treatments’
Dentists should take the time to talk to their patients about treatments.
Dentists should take the time to talk to their patients about what elective and emergency dentistry treatments entail before they are carried out, it has been noted.
Dentistry IQ reported no one likes surprises when it comes to health issues and it is therefore important for dental professionals to be open with their patients about recovery times, the likelihood of pain and other issues surrounding cosmetic dentistry.
The news provider noted: “Good communication is the foundation that fosters the relationships we as dentists maintain with our patients, as they entrust us with the dental health and wellbeing of their families.”
Elsewhere, Big News recently reported professional teeth whitening treatments will often deliver better results than those achieved through over the counter or take-home teeth whitening kits.
However, it is important to remember the professional method uses stronger chemicals to whiten the teeth and as a result, there can be a greater chance of side effects.
