If you’re apprehensive about going to the dentist for your routine dental appointments, you could be experiencing dental anxiety. At Dental Care of Stamford, we work to create a comforting, relaxing environment to address and alleviate the following reasons for dental concerns.
- Potential Pain
One of the most commonly reported fears associated with visiting the dentist is pain. While cavities and certain dental procedures can be uncomfortable, a quality dentist and his staff will do everything possible to put you at ease. Additionally, routine oral examinations aren’t painful and prevent you from experiencing future dental discomfort.
Many people feel anxious about letting someone examine their teeth, especially if they feel that attention will be called to their oral hygiene. Instead of being embarrassed, remember that your dentist is a trained professional who assesses your teeth to help improve them. Talk to your dentist about your cosmetic treatment options and how to raise your confidence in your smile. Being treated by the same dental hygienist may also ease your concerns by having your teeth cleaned by a familiar face.
- The Unknown
Much of the anxiety surrounding a dental appointment is a result of unknown expectations. Before your next routine examination, call your dentist’s office to get information about what to expect during your appointment. Typical oral examinations include a teeth cleaning, dental X-rays, and a visual assessment.
- Previous Experiences
Many dental patients have dental anxiety due to previous oral examinations. Don’t let a few poor experiences ruin your dental hygiene. Schedule an appointment with a reputable, quality dental office to ease your concerns and maintain your healthy smile. Once you experience several comfortable dental appointments, you can be at ease during your teeth cleanings again.
