Talk to the Dentist about Dental Phobia

teeth, health, smile, dentist, dentalhealth , oralhealthFor dental phobia sufferers even something as simple as having their teeth cleaned can be a traumatic event. The problem can be greatly alleviated by discussing any fears with the dentist.

The dentist can:

– Take the patient through the procedure step by step

– Lessen anxiety by suggesting methods of relaxation

– Possibly offer sedation to keep the patient comfortable and/or asleep during the procedure.

In extreme cases it may be “beneficial to find a dentist who utilises sedation dentistry” and this might be considered after a consultation.
