What can I do about my dental anxiety?
Dental anxiety is a real fear for many people, and at our Chagrin Falls, OH dental clinic we understand that. Rest assured you are not alone.
Common Dental Fears
- They are afraid of needles
- They dislike the sound and vibration of the drill
- They fear feeling pain
- They are embarrassed about the state of their oral health
If you are anxious about visiting the dentist, one of the best ways to overcome this is to find a sympathetic dentist who will go out of the way to ensure your comfort. Ask family and friends for recommendations of a trusted dentist with whom you can build a good relationship.
How Modern Dentistry Helps
You should also know that with today’s modern dental technology, most procedures are either painless or can be with the use of a local anesthetic. Because a numbing gel is applied to the gums before the injection takes places, the tiny needle stick will not hurt.
At Chagrin Family Dental Care, we will never judge you based on the current state of your oral health or make you feel embarrassed if it’s been a while since your last visit to the dentist. We just want to set you on the path for good oral health in the future.
