5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Be Afraid Of The Dentist

Posted · Add Comment

The high-pitched noise of a dentist’s drill brings on the shakes and a racing heart for many. Working in the dental field for over 8 years, I have seen many patients come in to the office terrified. There is no reason to be, and here’s why.


1. Nitrous (Laughing Gas).

If anything the laughing gas is a reason to be excited to go see your dentist!


2. Going to the dentist prevents heart disease.

And that should be enough of a reason to go see your dentist.  Heart disease is much scarier than getting a dental cleaning or a filling.

3. Pain free.

I could see how it could be scary back in the olden days, but now dental procedures are made to be painless with the novocaine that is available.


4. If you don’t like it, you can get up and leave.

If you feel uncomfortable, you can simply get up and walk out the door.


5. Dentists want to help you, not torture you.

Most dentists go into that field because they like to help people look and feel their best. Dentists have one job in mind and that is to keep your mouth healthy and your smile beautiful.
