Have No Fear – Your Dentist Understands

dca-blog_dental-fears-female-dentist-light

Has it been more than a year since your last dental check-up? Your dentist probably wants to see you at least once or twice a year, but maybe your dental anxiety is keeping you at home. If you are afraid of pain, needles, strange smells, or embarrassment over how your teeth look, don’t worry; you’re not alone. Although some dentists in the past wrongfully shamed patients in an effort to make them take oral health more seriously, today’s dentists understand that they’ll be more likely to keep up with their oral health when they don’t feel guilty or afraid.

Dental Fear Could Be Compromising More Than Your Smile
Without routine dental care, you may suffer severe dental problems or early tooth loss, but that’s not all. The condition of your teeth and gums conveys important information about your general health. A dentist is often the first person to spot signs of serious health issues like cancer, diabetes, and other systemic diseases. Besides managing early dental disease before it becomes severe and requires more costly intervention, your dentist can help you obtain earlier treatment for many life-threatening or chronic diseases.

Get the Dental Care You Need


Dentist know that when patients associate dental visits with pain and fear, they’re less likely to return, so they will do everything possible to avoid dentist phobia and make patients feel both mentally and physically comfortable during treatment. No matter how awful you think the condition of your teeth and gums is, your dentist has likely seen much worse. If dental anxiety is standing between you and a healthy smile, be upfront about your fears. You may be surprised to find that your dentist is much more understanding and supportive than you expect. Take a positive step toward better health by scheduling a dental check-up today.
