Dental Anxaity ? We are with you .

 



Fear of dentists is extremely common. A huge portion of our patients explain to us their fear of dental treatment, so there is nothing to be embarrassed about, and you are far from alone in this. Unfortunately though, we can only help those that come through our doors... and research has shown that each year, half a million Americans do not go to the dentist because of fear.The Texas  City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near t La Marque, Galveston, and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB and ROSS market complex is the closet dentist office .

Why is it important to identify my fears?

What goes through your mind when you think about going to the dentist? What is it that gets your heart racing? When we ask patients, a lot of the time they have difficulty pinpointing what it is about coming to see us they hate so much. All they know is they hate it!  However, dental anxiety, although so common, is so complicated and everyone is unique in their story. Unless you let us know what it is you fear, we are just assuming - and you know what they say about assuming. The last thing we want is to do something that  is routine - for example - lean you right back in the chair, and make you uncomfortable and add to your dislike of dentists.

Identifying what it is that makes you uncomfortable will allow you to understand your fear more, and then you can tailor your appointment with us to minimize those things. You do not have to explain yourself as to why those things scare you if you do not want to.

We have made a document to assist this process- find it here. We recommend going through the questions in your own time and sending it to us before your appointment, as often people have a mental blank when they're in the dental chair.

Two -Way Communication

Being afraid of the dentist is not weird, or abnormal, and it definitely doesn't make you a sook. If you don't think you'll be able to talk about it in the dental chair, you could try:

  •  talking with a friend or family member that is a good listener
  •  talking to our reception staff in a non-clinical room or via phone 
  •  fill out our form and email it to us, or bring it in with you

This is critical! 

We are dentists but we are also just normal people, all with our own personality. Find someone who you trust and makes you feel comfortable - one that you would like, if only they weren't a dentist!
