The Top 3 Reasons Not to Be Afraid of Your Dentist

added on: October 18, 2019

young woman at the dentistSpookiness is in the air this month as we move closer to all things Halloween. But there’s one place you should never be shivering and quivering to visit, and that’s seeing your dentist in El Paso

Sure, going to the dentist isn’t always rainbows and unicorns, but it’s certainly not the “FrightFest” our brains sometimes make it out to be. There are three BIG reasons why you should feel pretty darn good about going into your dental visit and even better about yourself when you leave.

Reason #1 – You’re Going to Be Healthier

Forget looking (and feeling) like those zombies on TV; when you see your El Paso dentist regularly for checkups, you’re setting yourself up for success. You’ll enjoy your natural smile for even longer, without the need for restorations such as fillings or crowns. You’re going to look younger, and you should rest easier knowing that your entire body is healthy thanks to your regular trips to the dentist.

Reason #2 – We’re Too Nice to Be Scary

Everything we do for you, every visit with us, revolves around your comfort. From the moment you come to see us for the very first time, to every followup visit after that, you’re going to feel it. There’s a sense of calm and relaxation in everything we do. You’ll feel assured and soothed, maybe even pampered during your dental visits. (That doesn’t sound scary at all!)

Reason #3 – Not Getting The Care You Need is Worse

Going to the dentist for checkups and cleanings with your dental hygienist is easy compared to what can happen if you put off taking care of your teeth. The next thing you know, you could be in pain or left with a tooth that has been damaged or is coming loose. Letting problems go undetected can turn into more serious dental issues down the road such as:

– Periodontal or gum disease with red, bleeding gums

– Loosening or shifting in your teeth

– Teeth that fall out

– Receding gums 

– Noticeable lousy breath or dry mouth

There are plenty of reasons to have a good scare this Halloween season, but coming to our El Paso dental office shouldn’t be one of them. There are so many ways we can help you feel more relaxed during your visits with us. Please take some time to schedule a consultation where we can sit down and listen, one-on-one, to your concerns about any fear you may have about seeing the dentist. We’re excited to show you how fantastic it feels to overcome your dental fears and take care of your smile and your body. Talk to us today and find out how we can help you worry less and be stress-free about dentistry.
