Overcoming Dental Fear: Your Guide to a Healthier Smile

More than brightening your face, having a healthy smile will give you confidence and better overall health. Good dental hygiene is linked to improved cardiovascular wellness, reduced anxiety, and better quality of sleep. However, there are a great number of people who overlook this, leading to problems such as bad breath, toothaches, and gum diseases.

America’s Dentist

Conquer Dental Anxiety

Visiting the dentist can be a stress-filled moment, but with modern dentistry, it has become less so. Nowadays, dentists are more conscious of patients’ apprehension. Various relaxation techniques are employed in their clinics. Pain control methods have made significant strides with the advent of numbing creams and less painful injections.

Talk to your dentist if you fear dental procedures. The latter can provide some hints on how to make you feel more comfortable during these visits. Here are some tips:

  • Put on earphones and listen to music that will distract attention from anxious-making sounds.
  • Use breathing exercises, as well as relaxation therapy, when coming for an appointment.
  • Decide on a sign with your dentist if there is any need to stop the treatment at any point in time.
  • Ask your nurse or perhaps let her/him sit beside you during your visit.

Simple Steps for a Brighter Smile

You do not have to take drastic measures to improve your oral health status. Switch your toothbrush every two to three months. Eating a piece of cheese after eating helps to minimize the effects of acids that injure teeth.
Drink lots of water, about 8 to 10 glasses daily, and avoid carbonated drinks and fast foods. Today’s dental surgeries and treatments are designed for comfort and painless procedures. Our staff can handle nervous patients effectively, giving them a good experience.

Special Care for Diabetics and Heart Patients

Those with heart disease, diabetes, or a family history relating to these problems must be extra careful with their oral hygiene. Regular checks for hidden cavities and gum diseases are vital. This is crucial because diabetic patients are usually more affected by infections. Good oral hygiene can be maintained by having regular scaling and polishing twice a year, thus preventing complications.

Managing Post-Cleaning Sensitivity

It is common for some mild tooth sensitivity following teeth cleaning. This happens in part because tartar removal reveals more enamel, making it much more sensitive to air or temperature changes. After about two weeks, though, it should stop being sensitive. There might also be slight swelling of the gums, but this should go away within a few days, too.
