Why You Should Not Be Afraid Of The Dentist
January 27, 2014 by Dr. Emanuel Layliev Dentistry
Fearing the dentists and dental procedures is very common and widespread. Fortunately, it is also founded on misconceptions that are quickly dispelled after a fearful patient meets with a dentist and progresses through the once-feared treatment. The days of painful and crude dental methods are over, and the future of dentistry is painless, modern and convenient.
If your fear of dentists is keeping you from getting much-needed dental treatment, you may be heading for something far scarier than a dentist. Untreated dental issues won’t only destroy your teeth and gums; they often lead to infections in the jaw and cause damage to your heart.
What’s more, if your teeth aren’t in good working condition you will be unable to eat and are at risk of becoming malnourished. Going to a dentist is certainly far less frightening than starving to death.
Talk to your dentist about all of your fears. He will gladly explain every step of each procedure you need to have performed and will give you a realistic assessment of what you should expect. Seeing how modern and sleek today’s dental tools are and getting to hear from your dentist what he will be doing will both go a long way to putting your mind at ease.
