Nervous? You Are Not Alone
The very idea of visiting a dentist holds a negative connotation for many individuals. If you are an adult with dental anxiety, here are a few tips that may help ease you into regular dental checkups and put you on the path toward enriched oral health and quality of life.
Choose a dentist who is appropriate for your needs. If you decide to schedule an appointment with me, I will ask you many questions. I want to get to know you, and help you get to know me, so you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Knowledge is Necessary for Effective Treatment
Be prepared to provide me with vital information about your lifestyle and health. Many people become intimidated in the office environment and avoid expressing pain or bringing attention to sensitive issues. As your dentist, I need to know your history and everything you are experiencing. I will be better prepared to help if I have accurate and complete information. Bringing notes can be helpful in case you forget something you want to discuss.
The best way to have a favorable experience is to communicate. Let me know what you are experiencing so that I can make adjustments and help you feel more comfortable and secure. If we conclude that you are going to need a dental procedure more extensive than filling a cavity, let’s discuss conscious sedation.
