Why Am I So Afraid to See the Dentist?
It surprises many people to learn that more than 90% of dental patients experience some form of fear or anxiety. If you're anxious, worried, or fearful about seeing your dentist for a checkup, deep cleaning, cosmetic work, or another type of dentistry, you're not alone. Most dental fear stems from a previous traumatic experience at the dentist, such as pain, or fear-triggering sounds and smells. The good news is that modern dentistry has significantly reduced the discomfort associated with seeing the dentist- and most dentists practice painless dentistry.
How Can I Overcome Dental Fear?
Find a dentist who uses the newest equipment and techniques in dentistry, and ask about sedation to maximize relaxation and comfort during your visit to the dentist. Schedule a new patient consultation with our team at Smile Loft Westwood Dental- smiles keep our staff focused on our patients' experience while visiting our office. Let us know about your dental anxiety when you call to book your appointment or when you come in for your next checkup.
Should I See a General Dentist or a Specialist?
Dental care experts recommend building a relationship with a general dentist in your community who offers a full range of services. Smile Loft Westwood specializes in a wide variety of dental care services, eliminating the need for a referral for root canal therapy, extractions, dental implants, crowns or bridgework, and other specialized treatment. Speak with our staff if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
