If you have been avoiding the dental chair because of dental anxiety, call and schedule an appointment with Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills.
Staying away from the dentist will only make things worse and sadly, that means more time in the chair which is exactly what you want to avoid.
Dental anxiety, phobia or dental fear is manageable with sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry puts people at ease whether it’s a fear of the needle or a fear of sitting in the dental chair.
Being anxiety free means you won’t skip dental appointments because of fear and that means you’ll have healthier teeth and gums.
For example, if you ignore bleeding gums because of dental anxiety your gingivitis can easily turn into periodontal disease.
Periodontitis is manageable, if treated, but not curable. Gingivitis on the other hand is completely curable as long as you see your dentist when symptoms present themselves.
If you have any of the above symptoms your dentist in Anaheim Hills recommends scheduling a dental appointment as soon as possible as some of these symptoms means that you might be dealing with periodontitis and not gingivitis. As mentioned previously, periodontal disease is not curable.
Tooth decay is another issue if you suffer from dental anxiety, fear or extreme phobia. Just like gum disease tooth decay won’t repair itself. Tooth decay will progress making that small toothache much too big for a small and simple filling.
If the cavity is large Dr. Ringer may have to crown the top of the filling to strengthen the restored tooth. If the tooth is damaged beyond repair and dead inside root canal therapy may be the only answer.
You can avoid unnecessary less conservative treatments by seeing your dentist regularly. Regular dental checkups along with bi annual professional cleaning appointments will keep your teeth and gums and the rest of your body healthy.
Don’t let fear get in the way of your dental health. Dr. Jack Ringer provides options for people suffering from mild to severe dental anxiety. Dental sedation is painless and the best way to keep your dental problems from getting worse.
Schedule your dental checkup with Dr. Ringer today. Your teeth and gums will be so happy you did and so will the rest of you.
