It seems that our last article hit a nerve (pun intended) with some readers who haven’t yet tried Puredental’s services. As we suspected, some people do fear their dentists, which is a shame.
At Puredental we’ve always offered a great service in a very relaxed and friendly environment, from day one, so it’s sometimes easy for us to forget what other dental patients go through with their respective dentists.
This is why we decided to post a few handy tips to help them get over their fear of the dentist.
The first one is communication. Communication is key — voice out your concerns, fears, or any previous bad experiences to your dentist. Talking things and receiving feedback can go a long way to reassure you that you’re in good hands.
Technology. You’ll be relieved to know that technology and research have worked hand-in-hand with your dentist. Overcoming dental anxiety is now easier than ever, whether it’s done through sedation or using quality equipment that may not have been available during a previous experience.
Choosing the right dentist. Here at Puredental we always stress the importance of choosing the best dentist to take care of your smile.
Trust plays a role in determining whether or not you will go back for another dentist appointment — so make sure your dentist sincerely cares for you and your teeth.
Ask for the opinion of family and friends, since word-of-mouth recommendations can be the best way to find a great dentist in your area. Inspect the clinic and make sure you feel relaxed in that environment.
If possible, choose a dentist that has already established him or herself in the industry.
