Do Your Teeth Chatter When You Make a Dentist Appointment?


It’s a familiar scenario. You’ve found an affordable dentist to treat your toothache, but your hands are shaking so badly you can’t dial the office phone number. Fear of going to the dentist prevents millions of Americans from getting the dental care they need. Not only does dental fear stop them from enjoying a healthy smile, it also may harm their general health. Untreated periodontal disease is linked to a number of serious health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

What’s So Scary About the Dentist?
For some people, the noises, smells, and sounds of the dentist’s office trigger fear. Anyone who’s suffered pain or other trauma during a dental appointment is likely to associate the office atmosphere with their traumatic experience. The effects of local anesthesia or even the dentist’s chair itself can cause some to feel trapped or out of control.

Tips for Managing Dental Fears
Fortunately, there are ways that you and your dentist in Mount Dora can help alleviate the anxiety. Here are a few practical tips that may help reduce dental fears.

  • Have someone you trust accompany you to the appointment.
  • Distract yourself by listening to music through headphones, so you can’t hear the sound of dental tools.
  • Practice relaxation techniques such as guided meditation, yoga or slow, deep breathing.
  • Talk with your family dentistry practitioner about pain control and sedation methods. Conscious sedation is a great option for patients with dental fears.
  • If your fear is unmanageable with conservative treatments, seek help from a therapist or psychologist.

How Your Dentist Can Help
An affordable dentist who also helps you manage your fear is the ultimate find. A compassionate, thoughtful dentist will explain everything that’s happening during a procedure, regularly ask for your permission to continue, offer breaks, and make sure you have a way to stop the work at any time if you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed. With a little effort and intuition, you and your dentist can manage or even reverse your dental fears, so you can receive the quality dental care you need.
