Don’t Let Dental Fear Ruin Your Smile

If you haven’t seen your dentist in a long time, you’re not alone. Most dental professionals recommend having a thorough exam at least once or twice a year, but many people neglect to keep up with their dental health due to fear of embarrassment or general dental anxiety. Perhaps you’re afraid of pain or sharp instruments, or maybe you fear what the dentist might find. You may even worry that you’ll be lectured about the condition of your teeth and gums. Today’s dentists have moved away from placing blame on patients and toward strategies that help them achieve oral health without guilt or fear.

Is Dental Fear Compromising More Than Your Smile?
If you don’t obtain regular dental care, you may suffer severe dental problems or early tooth loss, but that’s not all. The condition of your teeth and gums conveys important information about your general health. A dentist is often the first person to spot signs of serious health issues like cancer, diabetes, and other systemic diseases. Besides managing early dental disease before it becomes severe and requires more costly intervention, your dentist can help you obtain earlier treatment for many life-threatening or chronic diseases.

Beat Dentist Phobia and Get the Care You Need


Your dentist knows that when you associate dental visits with pain and fear, you are less likely to return, so he or she will do everything possible to make you feel both mentally and physically comfortable during treatment. No matter how awful you think the condition of your teeth and gums is, your dentist has likely seen much worse. If dental anxiety is standing between you and a healthy smile, be upfront about your fears. You may be surprised to find that your dentist is much more understanding and supportive than you expect. Take a positive step toward better health by scheduling a dental check-up today.
