Dentophobia: Overcoming Your Fear of the Dentist

One of the most common reasons that people neglect their oral health is their fear of dental work. Dentophobia shouldn’t stop you from receiving the oral treatment you both want and need. Advancements in dental care have allowed for anyone to have a comfortable experience at the dentist with sedation dentistry. This article will explore your options for having a stress-free visit to the dentist.

Do Your Research:

When considering any dental procedure in the Beverly Hills area, it’s always important to do your research. Finding a comfortable setting and experienced dentist will help ease your worries. Consider reading patient reviews to see how others found their visits and avoid a negative experience.

“I hadn’t had a cleaning or any preventative work done for years. Why? Because I hate visiting the dentist. There are a host of reasons, but suffice to say, I’m not a fan of needles and drills. (Dr Raanan) sat me down to perform an examination. Simultaneously, he explained, in real time, exactly what he was seeing and what his conclusions were. Each time he made contact with my teeth or gums, he asked how I felt… I felt totally at home and comfortable…What I also noticed were the open exam rooms. You can hear what each patient is going through and the conversations/context concerning every procedure. This means there is absolute transparency into the treatment others are receiving and the service provided by the professional staff. ” – Mars M.

Consider Sedation Dentistry:

Sedation dentistry is your first line of defense against dentophobia. There are various options of sedation for different levels of anxieties ranging from oral to intravenous. Sedation helps ease your fear of the dentist, and makes every procedure painless and easy. For more information on sedation dentistry options, see our post on Stress-Free Sedation Dentistry.
