Overcoming Your Fear of the Dentist
“I hate the dentist”
Is one of the common thing I hear from patients. We all know walking into a dental practice can be daunting. Although making that initial decision to pick up the phone to make an appointment could be a tough one but also life changing.
Be aware you’re not the only person who is scared of the dentists. At your initial appointment we would like you to tell us what you dislike while visiting the dentist, whether it be the bad childhood memories, the sound or it could simply be the smell.
The top 3 reason why people dislike the dentist and how we can help you:
Dreading to see the dentist cause of childhood memories or hearing stories from friends or family could leave you completely drained. Some people can’t sleep properly the night before their appointment. People hate feeling so anxious but they can’t shake it. At Gosford Family Dentist we do have Sedation Dentistry, which is a great option to reduce anxiety.
Yes, one of the biggest adult phobias and even more fearful for children. During a dental procedure it always best to maintain Pain management and one of the ways is with Local anaesthetic.Before the local anaesthetic is delivered, the dentist will apply numbing gel on your gums which make it a less painful experience which brings us to.
The question on everybody’s mind “is it going to hurt?”. Your teeth are a sensitive area of our body, so the threat of dental pain is extremely scary. That is why proper pain management is vital in dentistry. We believe dentistry should be comfortable. Our dentist makes sure you are completely numb or out of pain before any dental treatment. We can help make your dental appointment a more pleasant experience for you.
