Overcome Your Fear Of The Dentist

  • June 25, 2017

Hello and welcome back to our smile blog! Our Plainville, CT dentist’s office takes a comprehensive approach to dentistry. That is to say that here at Gentle Dental Care, we do it all: preventative teeth cleanings and oral exams, cosmetic smile makeovers, dental implant surgery, and a whole lot more. But regardless of what kind of service you are seeking, the important thing to remember is that we also offer sedation dentistry. This is to make it easier on all you folks who get anxious about visiting the dentist for whatever reason. Dr. Peltzer is the go-to guy when it comes to putting your fears to rest. As such, we’d like to use today’s post to talk about what we can do for you in this realm. When you are finished reading, be sure to get in touch and schedule your next appointment with us. You’ll be glad that you did!

Dental Anxiety Is A Common Problem

It goes without saying that if you are the least bit fearful or anxious, you won’t be as likely to pick up the phone and schedule that six month appointment most patients get to enjoy. By staying away from the dentist, you get to avoid confronting the reality of the situation on your mouth, which is nice in the short run, but you won’t be doing yourself any favors in the long run. By steering clear of us, you are only putting yourself at more risk for bigger health problems in your mouth and, quite possibly, the rest of your body. In the end, you could be creating a mess that is a lot more painful and costly to clean up.

Sure, you can still do your part at home by brushing your teeth every day and flossing and rinsing and all that good stuff. But you will be missing out on the additional care you need. You see, our professional teeth cleanings can build on your good work at home and rid your mouth of any lingering bacteria, tartar, and plaque that would otherwise be able to cause some real damage (disease, decay, etc.).

What’s more, letting Dr. Peltzer have a look around every six months or so will help us stay on top of any issues that might be developing in your mouth, like oral cancer, for example!

Look, we really do understand that there are often legitimate reasons for wanting to stay away. Most commonly, folks have had a bad experience elsewhere with a rude staff, an unkind dentist, or a painful procedure. But whatever has happened to you in the past, we want to make your future dental encounters much more positive with sedation dentistry. What have you got to lose?
