It is not uncommon for patients to dread an upcoming dental visit, but many also feel notable anxiety or fear about seeing the dentist. Unfortunately, professional dental care is non-negotiable if you want to retain a healthy and lasting smile. That’s why it is important to recognize the source of your anxiety and let a dentist create a comfortable and relaxed experience for you. Modern dentistry offers a number of techniques to help patients feel at ease while in the dental chair, including sedation dentistry, less invasive treatments, advanced technology and comfort amenities that make you feel like you are at home instead of a sterile, uptight dental office.

Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is one of the most important things that you can do for your entire health. The health of your mouth is a huge indication of your overall health; therefore, making your oral health a priority is necessary for living a health life. However, millions of people in America alone refuse to visit the dentist out of fear of what will happen at the dentist. Dental phobia is a true fear that allows the stress, anxiety, and/or panic of dental visits and treatments to keep them from stepping foot inside the dentist’s office. If dental phobia affects you, your child, or a family member and is keeping you from receiving he dental care that you need, please contact Dr. Wayne G. Suway today.

Much advancement has been made in dentistry, and more advancement is made each year, to allow patients to experience a pleasant dental experience. Many adults allow a traumatic memory from childhood to keep them from visiting the dentist as an adult. Others are leery of visiting the dentist because they know they have not been in a few years and they worry that they have let their problems get “too far gone.” And yet others have a sensitive gag reflex that makes them anxious about how they will react during a simple teeth cleaning procedure.
