Dental Phobia



Recently our office received a copy of WebMD, while glancing through the articles I found a great one on dental phobia written by Lisa Zamosky.  I'd like to share some of her article here with you.

Does the thought of succumbing to the dentist's chair send a jot of anxiety through your body?  When it comes to triggering a fear response, few things can set people off like an upcoming trip to the dentist.
   That fear can set in early.  Threatening comments from a parent, such as "If you don't brush your teeth, you'll have to go to the dentist," can leave a lasting negative impression.  But today there's no need any longer for people to fear dental pain, modern dentistry is virtually painless.
   New dental instruments and technology have come a long way over the past few decades.  New topical anesthetics that numb the area before and injection are more profound and keep patients comfortable during injections and deep cleanings.  New, thinner disposable needles are being used to deliver anesthetic into the gums at a slower rate, easing the discomfort from the pressure of the injection.
Nitrous Oxide ("laughing gas") relaxes patients during more involved procedures.  And many offices offer iPods, headphones, and TVs that help put your mind at ease.
   Talk to your dentist or hygienist about your concerns and give them the chance to make it a better dental experience by offering you the numerous comforts they have at their disposal.

The Greek word “phobia” simply means fear. The dental phobia causes a lot of distress, and impacts on other aspects your life, not just your oral health. Thanks a lot for such a nice and iformative information about dental fobia.
