Here at Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry, we know that not everyone is excited to see the dentist. We do our best to bribe you here with laughter and cookies, but we know that not everyone is excited to book their 6-month cleaning appointments to take care of your teeth.
We would like to strongly recommend though that you book your next cleaning today. That’s because the best way to avoid uncomfortable dental visits is to come for a regular cleaning.
Dental Problems Are Why People Fear the Dentist
One of the primary reasons that patients fear their dental visits is because of the pain or discomfort of a deep cleaning. But often that pain is the result of a delay in cleaning. The longer your dental issues are unresolved, the more you will have abscesses, gum infections, or difficult to clear tartar buildup – all of which make the cleaning more uncomfortable.
By attending all of your dental appointments on time, your teeth will be much easier to clean and much less likely to be infected. Your dental visit will be easier, and you will be less likely to have anxiety for your next visit.
What to Do if You Already Have Severe Dental Anxiety
If the idea of coming to the office for a cleaning already causes too much anxiety, our team is here to help. Dr. Chen can talk to you about options like sedation dentistry, which allows you to take some relaxation medications so that you feel far less stressed coming in for your cleaning.
We are also happy to have you visit the office and get used to your surroundings, and will even walk you through the procedures so that you know what we are doing and why it will help.
