Many people dislike going to the dentist for various reasons, whether they are worried about it hurting or have had a bad experience in the past. However, there really is nothing to be scared of and the dentist will do whatever they can to make you feel comfortable. Local anaesthetics make sure you don’t experience pain, and the clinic will provide a relaxing and friendly environment.
If you are worried about going to the dentist, could it perhaps just be your current dentist? If you have anxiety surrounding this, then you could find yourself getting unnecessarily worried. Perhaps it is time to change your dentist. Going somewhere new might undo some of those feelings of anxiety associated with the dentist’s chair, and help you to feel more at ease. Consider looking for a new practice, and tell them that you are a nervous patient. They should be able to help you.
