Vital Tips For Overcoming Your Fear of Dentists April 20, 2015

Vital Tips For Overcoming Your Fear of Dentists, Manhattan, New York

Why is there so much fear associated with general dentistry? Allow Preferred Dental Care Chelsea in Manhattan to alleviate some of the most common adult concerns with going to the dentist's office. Let's identify, and debunk, some typical fears people have with dentistry:

  • Pain: Horror stories of dental work from days gone by still live on, like urban myths, among popular culture. The days of dentistry by pliers is long gone, as there have been significant medical and pharmacological advances to manage pain. Because it has taken so long to get to this point of relative medical modernity, dentistry continues to be stigmatized by a bad reputation for pain.
  • Injections: Needles are scary, and people have every right to be afraid of such an invasive medical tool. However, powerful local anesthetics take the sting out of injections; thus the fear of needles, at this point, is largely mental and not too practical.
  • Loss of control: A general sense of helplessness can occur when you're in the dentist's chair with your mouth wide open. When the dentist or dental hygienist is poking around in your mouth, you cannot see what is going on, only feel it. This is when trust must be placed in the hands of the trained professionals whose livelihood is the successful handling of your dental health. If you would trust a pilot to fly your plane, you should also trust a dentist to take care when inside your mouth.

Whether it be teeth whitening, veneers, or just general dentistry, you need the dentist for a variety of dental services. Come visit the friendly dentists at Preferred Dental Care Chelsea. Make an appointment by calling (212) 594-7171
