Do You Like Your Dentist?

07.11.2011

If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you are not alone. Many people count a fear of dental services worse than a fear of heights, a fear of dogs or speaking in public. What is it about dentistry and other health services that causes people so much anxiety? And how can a person overcome these fears?

Everyone wants their teeth and mouth to be in good health and few will deny that a trip to see the dentist now and then is important. If you do not maintain good oral care, how can you expect to have a healthy smile, free from germs, cavities and bad breath? Even if it is scary to you, if you avoid general dentistry you will sooner or later require even more serious dental care. If you wait until it is an emergency, you may need more than dental services, you many need medicine services or worse, cancer services.

I have had some pretty painful experiences at the dentist myself and have heard horror stories of the mishaps in dental school. But let me assure you that not all dentists are rough and uncaring. After asking around to friends and neighbors in the Utah Valley area, I know that Delta Dental, American Fork Dentist and West Jordan Family Dentist all have very good reputations for being gentle. If you live in Utah Valley and are facing a fear of a painful experience, I recommend you check these places out or ask your friends and neighbors for their opinions too.

The environment of the dental clinic is also something that can help you trust your dentist and feel more comfortable. I find it very reassuring especially in pediatric dentistry, when the dentist is friendly to the kids and there are toys for them to play with. Grown-ups are not the only ones who face a fear of the dentist, but both kids and adults appreciate care services that are caring. I am told that West Jordan Dentists and West Jordan Wisdom Teeth specialists have a reputation for this.

Wherever you go, it is always a good idea to talk to your dentist about your dental anxiety. Let them know your fears. After all, you are the one who is paying for the procedure and the customer is always right. Many dentists will offer mild sedatives to help calm your nerves, or take extra care to be gentle. This is true not only at your dentist, but for periodontics, endodontics, and prosthodontic services as well. If your dentist does not listen to your concerns that is a sure sign you need a new dentist.

A last bit of advice is that you must fight your fear of the dentist. If you use your courage and reason, you will be able to admit that oral health is essential to the happiness of you and your family. It may be difficult to make a habit of dental visits at first, but the longer you put off going to the dentist the harder it will be to make yourself go. Everybody likes to see a pretty smile, and if you want a pretty smile you must brush your teeth, floss them and make regular visits to the dentist for cleaning. What are you waiting for? You can do it!
