How to Beat Dental Fears and Gain a Great Smile

dca-blog_dental-fears-girl-teeth

Some people just want to find an affordable dentist; others want to find an excuse to cancel their appointments because of paralyzing dental fears. Millions of patients across the country live in fear of receiving the dental care that could potentially save their smiles. Tooth and gum disease are associated with a variety of conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, so avoiding professional dental care can have far-reaching health effects.

The sounds and smells of a dentist’s office can trigger dental fears in some people. Someone who’s had a traumatic experience during a dental appointment may associate the dentist and the office atmosphere with their negative experience. Even the dentist’s chair can cause some to feel trapped and overly anxious.

Luckily, there are ways that your dentist in Ocoee can help you manage your dental fears. Here are some tips to reduce anxiety:

  • Take someone you trust with you to the dentist appointment.
  • Use relaxation techniques such as guided meditation or slow, deep breathing.
  • Listen to music through headphones to distract yourself from the sound of dental tools.
  • Ask your family dentist about sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is helpful for many patients with dental fears.
  • If you can’t manage your dental fears, a therapist or psychologist can help.

Find an affordable dentist in Ocoee who will explain a procedure, regularly ask for your permission to continue, offer breaks, and give you a way to stop the work at any time if you feel anxious. Your dentist can help you manage your dental fears so you can receive the professional dental care you need.
