If you’re afraid of making that dreaded trip the dentist’s office, you’re not alone. Phobias and anxieties stemming from the thought of visiting the dentist plague roughly 1 in 5 people. With such a large percentage of people letting this fear affect their dental and overall well being, it begs the question; why exactly do people feel so uncomfortable about going to the dentist?
For some people, it may have something to with past painful experiences at the dentist. Baby Boomers are likely to remember visiting the dentist before many groundbreaking strides were made in treatments and procedures to help reduce pain. For others, the stress and anxiety of the dentist’s office itself may be the largest motivator. So many people feel uncomfortable going to the dentist because they fear feeling helpless, and as a result let minor dental issues become major problems.
There’s no reason to be ashamed if you feel uncomfortable about going to the dentist. The skilled and sensitive team at Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry are prepared to help make every one of your visits as simple and stress-free as possible.
