Are you usually afraid of visiting the dentist? The sooner you learn how to face your fears, the sooner you will protect your teeth from cavities and loss.
– Recognise what scares you about the dentist, search for a dentist who specialises in treating patients with fears and let them know about your fears.
– Ask your dentist about dental tools and procedures and being sedated.
– Bring someone your trust, who doesn’t have your dental fears and will hold your hand through the procedure.
