Visit a Dentist You Trust

      One way to assuage your dental phobia is to make an appointment with a dentist that you trust. Maybe this is a dentist you’ve visited since you were a teenager, maybe you’re looking for a new dentist; regardless of the situation, make sure you trust them. Find a dentist that is experienced, knowledgable, and willing to help you fight your phobia. Do this, and your next dental appointment will go smoothly.

Visit a Dentist Who Knows About Your Phobia

     Another way to assuage your phobia is by visiting a dentist that knows you have a fear of dental visits. By doing this, you can give your dentists a chance to help you through the whole process whether it is a simple teeth cleaning or something a bit more serious. For example, your dentist will be able to do the following:

  • Explain what you’ll feel and for how long.
  • Ask if they have your permission to continue the process.
  • Give you the opportunity to stop the session
  • Give you the opportunity for breaks.

   These are just a couple of things you can do to relax while you are at the dentist’s office. If you’d like some more tips, please contact us.
