The fear of the dentist can be caused by traumatic dental treatments experienced by people, wrong teachings taught from school age, mostly when people are consciously hearing the sounds and seeing the procedures performed.
First of all, while it is possible to receive painless treatment with small filling procedures, delaying the treatments or not coming from fear supports the treatment to become a more difficult process. Both material and spiritual loss are becoming inevitable. For this reason, even if you do not have any complaints, we should take care to visit your dentist routinely.
Local anesthetics have increased large-scale opportunities in medical interventions in our era and increased patient comfort to the maximum level. In addition, the widespread use of sedation and general anesthesia and dental treatments have become powerful alternatives for patients to receive comfortable treatment and reduce their fears.
The warm and sincere approach of physicians in your fears will support you to show that they understand you with empathy; it will make your physician work more carefully by explaining your fears clearly to your physician.
Routine applications such as oral care, tooth brushing and flossing will have a protective effect against painful dental problems that will reduce the risk and frequency of dental problems.
Since technology and treatment techniques are developing rapidly, painful procedures used to be done today are painless and in shorter times. Tools and systems used in dentistry continue to be developed in order to increase patient and physician comfort. In addition, with the shortening of the procedures, treatment preferences consisting of a few short sessions instead of single and long tiring sessions will allow you to overcome your fears.
People who receive psychiatric treatment may have anxiety that affects not only dental anxiety but their entire life. In such cases, preferring dental treatment in the morning and continuing treatment in consultation with the psychiatry department will reduce anxiety.
Asking your physician to be in contact with your physician, asking questions about the question, introducing the tools used, showing the hygiene conditions, and explaining the treatment procedures step by step will support your physician and you to be in a more comfortable treatment process.
