Worried About Going Back to the Dentist?

Thursday, August 27, 2015

When is the last time you’ve sat in the dental chair? Has it been years since a dentist has peered into your mouth? If you’re anxious about coming back to the dentist, let our warm and welcoming dentist in Calgary put you at ease. Here are a few tips and tricks for people who are afraid to open wide:

1

Talk to us. As your Calgary dentist, I will listen carefully to you as you talk about any concerns you may have. Brushing cleanses your mouth of sugars, acids, and harmful bacteria.

2

Ask questions. I will make sure that you understand which procedures are available to you and will explain things step-by-step. Tooth decay often occurs between teeth where your brush can’t reach. Floss to purge these hard-to-reach areas.

3

Breathe deeply and relax.

4

Schedule an appointment for earlier in the day before the stresses of your day add up.

5

See your dentist in Calgary on a regular basis to prevent larger problems requiring more extensive treatment procedures.

6

Visit our dental office in Calgary before your first appointment. Discussing your treatment options and asking questions to your dentist can help to put your mind at ease before you sit down in our chair. We offer sedation dentistry for those who experience dental anxiety, allowing for a relaxed and comfortable experience.

If you are looking for a dentist in Calgary who won’t be alarmed by the fact you haven’t seen a dentist in 20 years, come see us at Abougoush Family Dental Care. If you need a Calgary dentist who will put your mind at ease, please call and make an appointment.
