If you are anxious or worried about seeing a dentist because you haven’t been to one for a while and that you may experience a hard time, please don’t be.
It’s okay to be afraid of the dentist. 🙂
If you didn’t visit the dentist as a child, or have had a bad experience in the past then facing the dentist can be nerve wracking. Culturally, there is a lot of fear surrounding visiting the dentist compared to any other doctor. But if you are now at a point where your teeth hurt when you chew, are sensitive to hot and cold, your gums bleed when you brush or your have a broken tooth, it is time for you to make an appointment with the dentist. Our team here at Pennant Hills Dental Centre want you to know that we understand nerves and jitters about visiting the dentist, and we want to help you overcome them with our help.
If you want to avoid dental pain and tooth decay then preventative dentistry is really important. We always recommend coming in for a check up even if you don’t have pain to prevent dental emergencies and small (often easy to fix) problems turning into big (and often expensive) problems. especially if you are fearful of the dentist. preventing the pain is much easier that treating the pain. A dental check up is easy and painless, and calming your dental nerves with straight forward procedures is much better than combatting them when you are already in pain and emotions are running high.
That being said if you are dealing with dental pain or discomfort our team is ready to assist you through the process to overcome your fears and restore your smile. We have a variety of options and will do whatever we can to make your experience as pain and stress free as possible.
People worry about cost, and while we appreciate dentistry is expensive we aim to provide good value dentistry, the right treatment at the right price. We do not compromise on our level of service, safety or hygiene. The longer you leave your dental care the more complex problems become. More complex problems require more complex solutions which can be expensive. So don’t delay, come in, know your options and be informed and in control of your oral health.
We know some people are scared of the dentist because they are embarrassed about the state of their teeth. There is no need to feel embarrassed about not having dental treatment done in the past or ignoring the recommendations of earlier dentists. Here at Pennant Hills Dental Centre we have seen it all, we don’t judge, we are here to help you.
We want you to enjoy your life, pain free, smiling the whole way. 😁 And even though you are nervous, we believe there is no reason to live with pain or live without smiling.
