How Do You Cope With A Fear Of The Dentist?

September 25, 2014

454389001It is natural to fear the unknown. Children can be especially fearful of the dentist because they don’t know what to expect during a dental visit. Adults can have a fear of the dentist as well because of past negative experiences. You can alleviate the fears of children by educating them on the importance of taking care of their teeth.  You can alleviate your own fears by learning how Dr. Salivonchik uses the latest technology and Sedation Dentistry to make a visit to his office stress and pain free.

Addressing Common Fears of the Dentist

It’s important to distill fears of the dentists early in a child’s life. If you don’t, a childhood fear of the dentist could become a lifelong fear. This results in many people avoiding the dentist as adults, causing the condition of their teeth to further deteriorate and creating a vicious cycle. You can prevent this cycle by taking your child to see the dentist early and often.  Common coping methods include:

  • Distraction- Counting or playing games to get you to think about something else.
  • Distancing – Engaging in positive thought exercises like meditation.
  • Self-Efficacy – Reinforcing your sense of personal strength
  • Optimism – Thinking positive thoughts about how much better you will feel after treatment.

If these techniques don’t work to alleviate your anxiety or fear of dental visits, you can rest assured that the Dr. Salivonchik’s Sedation Dentistry practice will help you through the dental treatments you need.

For every teeth whitening procedure Dr. Salivonchik performs, the fees for those procedures are donated to Brenton’s Hope.

Brenton’s Hope is a charitable organization founded to raise awareness of childhood cancer and provide money for the families of children who have been diagnosed. Dr. Salivonchik’s decision to do this started when he learned that one of his own patients had been diagnosed with cancer. Since then, he’s been doing what he can to support those in need with the money earned from this very popular cosmetic service.
