Tips for Combating Dental Fears

dca-blog_dental-fears-girl-teeth

If you have had an unusually upsetting or even painful visit to the dentist in your past, it may be that you are still suffering from serious dental fears. While there are not many people who truly love a trip to the dentist, there are millions of individuals who actually have a paralyzing fear about even the thought of it. Because the health ramifications of poor dental care can be so substantial, this presents a real dilemma. The good news is that growing numbers of family dentistry professionals are receiving specialized training in the treatment of those suffering from dental fears.

Many people are more afraid about not being able to control what happens at the dentist than they are about the discomfort they think they may experience. The key for anyone with severe dental fears is to find a caring, affordable dentist in Pikesville who will explain the procedure in detail, allow the patient to interrupt the treatment if necessary to take a break, and discuss pain control and sedation dentistry. If dental fears are causing someone to avoid professional dental care, a therapist or psychologist can help deal with the anxiety.

Many dentists have designed calm, relaxing office environments to help alleviate their patients’ dental fears. They may offer their patients music to listen to or a movie to watch while undergoing treatment, and feature soothing artwork and calming water features. This creates a relaxing atmosphere that’s quite different from the stressful dental care experience patients may be expecting.

To get the dental care you deserve from an affordable dentist in Pikesville, call Dental One Associates of Pikesville today at (443) 898-1231 or make an appointment.
