The very idea of visiting a dentist holds a negative connotation for many people. If you are an adult with dental anxiety, or your child is preparing to visit the dentist for the first time, here are a few tips that may help ease you into regular dental checkups and put you on the path toward increased oral health and wellness.
Choose a dentist in Alexandria who is appropriate for your needs. When you meet your new Alexandra dentist for the first time, make an effort to ask questions about the care you will receive. Be sure to communicate with your dentist about his/her experience, age range of patients, and recommended procedures for any troubles you may have. Get to know your dentist so you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Be prepared to provide your dentist with information. Whether you are experiencing specific pain at that moment, or anticipating a problem, be sure to discuss everything with your dentist. Many patients become intimidated in the office environment and avoid expressing pain or discussing issues. As your dentist, we need to know your history and everything you are experiencing. We will be better prepared to help if we have accurate and complete information.
There is no need to feel self-conscious if it has been a long time since you have received dental treatment. We have treated many first-time patients in your situation and have developed a trusting relationship with them.
At Center for Dental Anesthesia our professional staff will work to make your dental experience a pleasant one. We know it can be uncomfortable to visit the dentist for the first time or after a long while. We’ll do what we can to make you feel relaxed, secure, and among caring friends.
