Work Through Your Fear Of The Dentist In 2019 [BLOG]

Last year, a condition that can best be summed up as a fear of the dentist prevented millions of Americans from receiving the basic dental care they deserve. If you, too, are afflicted with some level of dental anxiety, it can be bad for your continued wellbeing. And the gentle dentists at our Fredericksburg, VA office want to work with you to make 2019 the year that you finally take back control over the health and appearance of your smile. So, after you’ve finished reading this post, be sure to call us today at 540-369-4926 to request your next appointment.

Why Do Dental Checkups Matter?

The one thing that we want you to know is that the team here at Lloyd F. Moss, Jr., DDS & Lloyd F. Moss, III, DDS is here for you. By avoiding the preventive teeth cleanings that we can regularly administer to keep cavities and disease at bay, you’ll only be setting yourself up for more pain and expense down the line.

And by skipping the thorough dental exams that alert us to anything that may already be amiss in your mouth, you will be delaying the start of treatments for such emerging issues as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer until they have become major problems, that may not have conservative solutions the longer you wait to address them.

But that doesn’t have to be your fate.

Given all that we’ve just told you about what you’ll be missing, we don’t think it is in your best interest to dwell on the past so much. So, if you have had a bad experience with other dentists, it is time to move on. We can give you a better dentistry experience moving forward that will make it possible for you to get back on track in regards to your oral health.

Our Doctors Listen

Maybe communication has been part of the problem in your past. No one likes surprises. But once you are entrusted to our care, we will we explain your treatment plan and cover precisely what you can expect. We will also make sure you are on the same page as us by listening to your questions and concerns along the way.

If you are struggling with fear or anxiety, we’ll listen to your concerns. Please just let us know before you arrive, and we will do everything we can to relax your fears enough to get back in the dental chair.

And, unlike at some other practices you may have been to, when you do visit our office, you will never be made to feel rushed during an appointment. That’s your time, and you are entitled to it. You also deserve a positive, pain-free experience. To that end, we have the tools and training to be able to administer dental sedation while you are here.

Don’t be shy about telling us if you need a little something extra to relax. We know that some folks need more help letting down their guard than others. That is why we offer several types of sedation dentistry to help you get through your return visit to the dentist.
