Patients in Surrey able to overcome their dental anxiety with help from dentists

Dentists are trained professionals who devote their working lives to helping to prevent oral hygiene problems occurring in their patients. But you have to go and see the dentist in order for them to be able to examine your mouth. This is a problem for people who suffer from dental anxiety and it is a problem that needs to be overcome so that the health of their mouths can be monitored by those who know the most about it.

Dental anxiety can take a number of forms and has different levels of severity. There are those who are simply not keen on going to the surgery and so avoid it while their teeth are in a reasonable standard of health. Some are not keen on what they perceive to be the ambience of dental surgeries and some have had a personal disagreement with a member of staff and so don’t want to return to the surgery. At the more severe end of the spectrum are those who are simply terrified of being in the dentist’s chair and worry about drills, injections and so on.

Whatever the reason for feeling anxious about visiting the dentist, it is vital that it is overcome. In doing so it can be helpful to overturn some of the stereotypes about dentistry which persist. For a start, many dental procedures are different in substance to what they used to be. Pain free gels make injections more comfortable and Waterlase technology is replacing the dental drill where possible.

Book an informal appointment with your Surry dentist so that you can put to rest your feelings of dental anxiety.
