If you experience anxiety about visiting the dentist, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans avoid the increasingly important bi-annual appointment for a myriad of reasons. People have cited such reasons as anxiety from the sounds of dental equipment, pain associated with procedures, fear of needles, fear of the dentist himself and criticism for not coming more often, fear of a diagnosis, and many more. With the mountain of research connecting oral health with a number of other health conditions growing, it is crucial to receive regular, professional cleanings and exams. And yet, millions still skip the dentist. This is a huge problem that we continue to work to overcome.
One of the most common fears about visiting the dentist stems from anxiety about the unknown. Some patients haven’t been to the dentist in years and are simply scared because they don’t know what to expect. This can be especially true if they’re visiting a dental professional for the first time. We know that, here at Miami Dental Sedation Spa, which is why we give you a head’s up about what you can expect the very first time you visit our office. Our primary goal is to create a personal, comprehensive, professional, and relaxing experience for all of our patients. Knowing what will happen during your first appointment is the first step in creating the relationship that allows all of that to happen.
