Do you have fear of dental visits? Don’t feel you are alone. 80% of people experience some sort of tension in the dental environment.
In fact, 25 million Americans are so frightened they avoid treatment entirely. But delaying or avoiding treatment often results in unnecessary tooth loss or costly restorative procedures.
There can be many reasons for dental anxiety. Some of the most common ones include: 1.) Prior experiences- Many patients have unpleasant memories about their childhood dentist or have heard “horror” stories from other people. 2.) The sensory stimuli of the dental office such as sights, sounds, smells, etc. We offer head phones, TV’s in every operatory, large windows which let in natural light and an open feeling in our operatories. Patients at this Golden, CO Dentist practice tell us that we have a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere. 3.) Embarrassment and/or lack of control- you may feel your teeth are hopeless and afraid you will get reprimanded for not going to the dentist in so long. We ask that you be honest and tell us all your concerns. Effective communication between the dental team and the patient is critical to helping you overcome your fear.
