Dealing with Dental Check Ups

Yes, I know. Visiting the dentist isn’t always so pleasant and can be really scary. Dental fear usually stems from a previous painful experiences or reports from friends or pop culture. Many of these negative stereotypes originated a long time ago, when dental technology was much more rudimentary. The mouth if the gateway to the rest of the body. An oral infection or disease can easily spread beyond the mouth causing heart disease, premature death and osteoporosis.

But there are some things we can do to make those visits a bit more enjoyable. Here are a few tips :

  • Arrange a time to meet the dentist before any treatment to discuss the procedure and any fears. Knowledge is power.
  • Instead of worrying about pain before the exam even starts, try to visualise a positive experience while waiting in the reception area.
  • During the actual exam, remember to breathe deeply. Keep a pleasant experience or place in mind to stay calm.
  • Bring some tunes to drown out potentially scary noises like the drill. Most dentists don’t; mind and even encourage cranking up the volume.

    Hey! I almost didn’t recognize your site with the name change. G.S. are your initials I assume? lol..

    So weird..last night i fell asleep for like an hour, and when I woke up I couldn’t go back to sleep. I ended up watching the Celestine Prophecy for like the fifth time, and when I was finished I picked up my phone and went directly to article you just wrote. In some way, your article was related to the movie, I have to look for it again. ❤ I also need to book a dentist appointment..😁 Alright keep in touch.
