There have been many studies showing that a large proportion of adults, and some children have at least some anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. Some patients have a genuine phobia about undergoing dental procedures, or even visiting the dentist for check-ups. But we can help you to manage your concerns using our special approach towards dental treatment.
Some people can trace their dental anxiety or fear back to a particular visit to the dentist, perhaps when they were a child. But, for many others, anxiety around dental appointments is not caused by a fear of dentist visits as such, but a fear of pain or a fear of the unknown. But, the fact is, advancements in dental treatments mean that they are now quicker, more effective and cause less discomfort than ever before. Talking to your dentist about your treatment and what you can expect can help to allay your fears.
If you are worried about visiting the dentist, you may put off making an appointment, even if you are in pain or have clear signs of tooth decay. This dental anxiety could even make it more likely that you will need more invasive treatments in the future. While you can brush and floss at home, proper care of your oral health generally requires professional deep cleans bi-annually to remove any plaque, tartar and bacteria from your teeth. Without these routine visits, deposits can build up on your teeth and cause more serious problems.
