Why Do Adults Avoid the Dentist? And Why They Shouldn't!
There could be many reasons as to why someone would want to avoid the dentist, but the most common reasons are pain, fear, and cost.
Today, Dr. Dunlap is going to break down each of these fears and how we can help ease them!
Fear of the Dentist
Many people have a fear of the dentist because of a past experience or for whatever reason. However, we do our best to make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible. If you experience extreme anxiety about the dentist, we can discuss possible sedative techniques.
Is it Painful?
Pain often goes hand in hand with fear of the dentist. They worry that their visit will be painful. Again, we do everything we can to make you comfortable and mitigate any pain.
Going to the dentist regularly also prevents pain. With good dental care and habits, you should be able to avoid any of the treatments that people view as "painful."
"But the Dentist is So Expensive!"
We know that cost is often the biggest reason that people avoid the dentist. Dental hygiene is extremely important, so we have devised a Dental Savings Plan to help those who do not have dental insurance be able to afford their appointments.
