I’m afraid to go to the dentist, what should I do?

Dentophobia (fear of dental treatment) affects adults and children, until the last postponing a visit to the clinic. As a rule, this only aggravates the situation and forces one to spend more time in the doctor’s chair than was required, and it can also be felt significantly in the pocket. In this article, we will figure out how to solve the problem.

How to defeat the fear of the dentist

Why you can not postpone a visit to the doctor
Reproduction of carious bacteria brings not only pain, but also infects the entire oral cavity. This leads to headaches, digestive disorders, diseases of the throat, rashes on the skin, asthma, inflamed lymph nodes and other dangerous phenomena. It is no less dangerous to launch gum disease – the inflamed mucosa will give the bacteria bacteria a chance, expose the neck of the teeth and may even lead to tooth loss.

Causes of Fear
In impressionable adults, phobia has occurred since Soviet times, when caries was treated without anesthesia and outdated equipment. Now sedation deprives any discomfort during drilling and turning, and modern tools save treatment time from 2 hours to 15 minutes.

However, it is difficult for some patients to stop associating a white office with something other than pain and humiliation. Many doctors in state clinics still allow themselves to condemn the condition of the client’s teeth, which does not add confidence. These fears must not be allowed to stand in the way of health. In a good clinic, doctors will understand your anxieties, calm them down and tell you in detail about how to deal with them.

Practical tips
In no case do not drink alcohol before the session “for courage” and pain relief. Firstly, control over yourself and your health will worsen, the perception of pain will change, you will not be able to inform the doctor in time if there is discomfort somewhere, and you will not be able to quickly answer him a question. Alcohol also causes vasodilation, which will increase bleeding – this is very dangerous with any medical intervention.
Choose cabinets with a radio or TV above an armchair. Any visuals and unobtrusive music, TV show will instantly distract you and help you relax. Involuntarily you will cease to focus on what is happening, and the time in the chair will fly by.
Order a treatment under general sedation if the fear of the drill is completely unbearable. You will have to pay the amount 3-4 times more than the original, but you will save yourself a huge amount of nerves and time. Light anesthesia lasts no more than is necessary for the procedure, and you can return home on the same day. The service is also suitable for very sensitive and shy kids.
Go for professional cleaning once every six months. Firstly, it will protect your teeth from tooth decay and delay the forced visit to the dentist. Secondly, you will get used to the doctor’s office and once again remind yourself that there is nothing scary or painful in visits to the dentist. It is also advisable to find “your” specialist and go only to him in order to avoid additional stress.
Get enough sleep before treatment, come full and relaxed. Adequate blood sugar and vitality will help you withstand temporary inconvenience and not be afraid of dizziness after. In advance, you can drink chamomile tea, visit a relaxation massage.
Use earplugs and special media glasses to muffle the sound of the drill and not look at frightening instruments. In a good clinic, they will meet you and offer you such things to make the treatment comfortable.
