Overcoming Dental Phobia

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Evan
Overcoming Dental PhobiaEvery single patient should feel relaxed, comfortable, and at ease. Despite this, over 80% of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. With our variety of techniques, we have helped thousands overcome their fear. As dentists, we are passionate about changing patients' perceptions of dentistry.

Dental Anxiety Effects on Your Health

If something scares you, what do you do? Stay away from it! The same applies to dental phobia. You need to visit the dentist regularly, receive preventive care, and address issues. A dental phobia can prevent you from going to the dentist or getting recommended treatments, resulting in discoloration, cracked or broken teeth, gum disease, cavities, and mouth pain. Also, various other dental-related issues will go undetected or untreated (such as TMJ, sleep apnea, and oral cancer). Dentists only benefit you. For your journey to overcome dental fears, keeping this in mind is essential.

Tricks to Overcome Dental Anxiety

The right dentist can make all the difference. As a result, you'll feel more confident and comfortable. Consider a dentist who is caring, and friendly, offers great reviews, answers all your questions, is comfortable, and provides personalized care. Before your appointment, prepare yourself. Deep controlled breathing, meditation, or stretches are useful for many people. In the case of extreme anxiety, you may want to consult with your dentist about possible sedation techniques. Your appointment can be made more enjoyable with a friend. A supportive person waiting in the lobby during your appointment or in the room with you can help you feel safer and more relaxed. The stress of rushing to make it on time can cause you to lose your cool. Take your time and arrive extra early. Take a few minutes to relax, talk to the front desk staff, or ask questions if you arrive early. Any concerns, questions, or discomfort should be expressed throughout the visit. Is there something you'd like to know about? Need a moment before continuing treatment? Feeling anxious? Tell us.
