Don't Let Being Embarrassed Keep You from Getting Proper Dental Care

Posted on 2/15/2017 by Dr. Justin Lai
A man covering his smile, because he’s embarrassed of his oral health.
A lot of people are nervous to go back to the dentist after not seeing them for a while. They are embarrassed about the condition of their mouth, and don't want ridicule or a lecture about why they didn't come in sooner.

The dentist you pick plays a very important role in how you are treated when you go in. If you have been looking for a new dentist to go to, look for one that specializes in fearful patients and restorative care.

These Dentists Really Want to Help You

When you have a dentist that not only understands the fears that patients have, but is also able to help restore the problems, it can go a long way in helping you overcome your fear of going in to the dentist.

They are not going to make you feel bad. No dentist ever should, but that is not to say that some haven't in the past. However, these dentists are going to praise your strength and courage to come in now instead of waiting even longer.

It takes courage and faith in the dentist you pick to go back into the dentist after being away for any length of time. You know your mouth is not in perfect condition, and the idea of getting a lot of work done is overwhelming. Don't put your focus on that. Put your focus on the idea that you are going to be able to get the process started with compassion and understanding.

Fear should never stop you from taking care of yourself. Make sure you tell the dentist that you are fearful and what things frighten you the most. Then, they can work to help make you comfortable and you can get the care you need and deserve.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about your smile.
