Health Tip: Seniors, Be Prepared for Dental Visits

Follow this checklist of items to bring

(HealthDay News) -- If you're a senior, make the most of each dental visit by preparing a list of questions to ask to maintain good dental health.

The American Dental Association lists these tips to help you prepare for your dentist appointment:

  • Make a list of all of your medications, and be sure to include both prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements.
  • Make a list of all your allergies and medical conditions.
  • Write down phone numbers and contact information for all your other doctors, health care providers and any previous dentists you have seen.
  • Bring a list of emergency medical contacts, who may be required to make medical decisions on your behalf if there is an emergency.
  • Bring your Medicaid and/or dental insurance cards.
  • Bring your dentures or partials to the visit, even if you're not currently wearing them.
