Your Dapper Dentist in Winter Park | How to Conquer Your Fear of the Dentist

Date of Post

Did you know that according to research, nearly 75% of American adults are afraid to step inside a dental office? The fear of dentists or dentophobia is a common phobia among individuals of all ages. In most cases, it is associated with a fear of needles or a fear of doctors. Considering most dental issues often occur without initial symptoms, avoiding the dentist can greatly increase your chances of developing cavities and periodontal disease.

Use Breathing Exercises

Deep breathing techniques are effective at reducing anxiety and relieving stress. They activate your parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system that signals your brain to release soothing hormones that calm you down.

Know that Dentistry Can Be Painless

Thanks to modern technology and medicine, dentistry isn't what is once was. One bad experience can shape your whole outlook, and, unfortunately, dentistry often gets a bad rap. Just like advances in technology shape our every day lives, dentistry has evolved for the better.
