Ridding Yourself of Dental Fears

dca-blog_dental-fears-girl-teeth

Dental fears can be the result of a particularly painful or unsettling office visit in your past, or there may be deeper issues that prevent you from making regular dental appointments. No matter the cause, the potential consequences of avoiding the dentist can be quite serious. For that reason, it is worthwhile to identify local dentists specializing in the care and treatment of patients who have these very real, often debilitating worries.

Those who fear their dentist may actually be more worried about their inability to control what happens there than the actual discomfort they expect to feel. Others may have strong memories of an especially painful dental experience from their past. A compassionate dentist will treat patients as individuals and carefully assess their comfort level, pain tolerance, and dental fears. Patients should feel free to speak up if they do not feel their concerns are being heard.

Family dentistry professionals treating patients with dental fears often work to create office environments designed to foster a feeling of calm and relaxation. They may include soothing artwork, water features, and may provide patients access to their choice of music. Others give patients the ability to select a movie to watch while undergoing treatment. All of these things combine to produce a non-threatening atmosphere that feels quite different from the negative experiences patients may be recalling or anticipating.

The trick for anyone with serious dental fears is to find a dentist in Quail Meadows willing to thoroughly explain what will occur at every stage of the treatment, to communicate to the patient that he or she is able to stop things at any time and take a break, and to discuss sedative or pain control options freely. If dental fears still pose such a problem that proper dental care is likely to be neglected, a visit with a psychologist may be the best way to get those concerns under control.
