Overcome Your Dental Phobia

Essex dentists signal an end to dental phobia with new approaches to dentistry

The first step towards keeping a healthy mouth is to make sure you brush and floss at least twice a day.  This helps ensure that plaque is not allowed to build up and attack the enamel which protects your teeth.  But alongside this it is very important that you visit your dentist every six months to have your mouth examined by an expert.  This is so that any potential conditions can be stopped in their tracks before they develop into something worse.

However, many people feel anxious about visiting their dentist.  This is a condition that is often known as dental phobia and there are a number of causes for it.  Some people are afraid of going to the dentist because of a fear of needles, for example.  Such anxieties might be rooted in childhood and can be difficult to overcome.  But it is worth bearing in mind that, should you require an injection, pain free gels are now commonplace to make injections far less uncomfortable.

If you have not visited the dentist in a number of years you might feel embarrassed about the state that your teeth are in.  You should remember though that dentists have seen it all.  They are trained to help you with any oral issues you might have and really just want to help you out.

If you have experienced a dentist who is not sympathetic to your problems, that can put you off visiting again too.  The feeling that you are not being listened to can be very frustrating and mean that you are loathe to return to the same dental practice.  In such a case you ought to seek out a different dentist as communication is the cornerstone of a good relationship.
