Put Your Fear Of The Dentist Behind You

Put Your Fear Of The Dentist Behind You

Welcome back to the Moss dental blog!

We are in the practice of making dentistry solutions pain-free and easy for the families of Fredericksburg, Virginia. We know that some of you aren’t exactly excited about making your next dental appointment with us, and we want to help you work through whatever obstacles are in your way.

Have you…

…ever had a bad experience at another dentist’s office?

…been afraid to confront the reality of your oral health issues?

…felt rattled by the sounds and smells of drills and other dental devices?

Then it could be that you are afflicted by something known as dental anxiety, which is a very real and dangerous condition that influences the health care decisions of millions of Americans. Not addressing your dental anxiety head-on will be bad news for you in the long run, because you will likely avoid the professional teeth cleanings that can help keep tooth decay and gum disease on the run.

Additionally, if you let your fear of the dentist get the better of you, you will probably opt out of the thorough dental exams that can alert you to anything that has gone awry in your mouth or elsewhere in your body. Thus, you will not find out about emerging causes for concern like cavities, periodontal disease, and even cancer, until they have become more serious (and costly) concerns.

Your health is too important to ignore. And whatever is going on in your mouth, isn’t likely to just resolve itself. That’s why we want to help you get back on the good road, fast!

You’ll be happy to know that we provide a more gentle approach to dentistry in Fredericksburg, VA. As trained professionals, we will systematically address your dental anxiety starting with the way in which we conduct ourselves around the office.

Diffusing Dental Anxiety At Moss

We aren’t trying to toot our own horn, but there are some simple things that we do here that truly set us apart from our competitors.

In our office, we want you to be as informed and in-control of your oral health decisions, as possible. So, should you struggle with fear or anxiety, just let us know in advance, and we we can to put your fears to rest.
