Keeping a dentist appointment can be hard, especially if you’ve had negative experiences at the dentist in the past. These can sometimes create dental anxiety. That anxiety can make going to the dentist difficult–even when you know how important regular check-ups are to your continued dental health. Let’s take a look at what sorts of things can cause dental anxiety, as well as a solution you may not have considered.
–Past Experiences: If you have had painful dental or oral procedures in the past, the experience may make it harder for you to see your dentist in the future. At Marze Dental, we will do all we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. Our skilled staff will assist you in anything that you need to be comfortable. It may also be beneficial to bring along some music or an audiobook to listen to to distract you during the procedure or cleaning.
–Lack of Control: Sometimes negative mental or emotional conditions can be triggered by a feeling of helplessness. Remember that at our office, you are in complete control of the situation and can stop or pause the procedure at nearly any point.
–Anxiety: If you know that you struggle with a lot of dental anxiety, ask our office about the possibility of sedation dentistry. Sedation can help you feel relaxed, comfortable, and calm during your procedure. Talk with our team about the sedation dentistry options available at Marze Dental.
