For many of us, a dental appointment is an uncomfortable experience. It may be the sound of the drill or the sound of the sharp tools scraping the teeth. For whatever the reason, it is real to someone who has a dental phobia. It may be the result of a previous traumatic experience at a dentist office or simply a preconceived notion that it will be a painful experience.
This dentist is very reassuring and recommends practicing prevention by being super vigilant in the care of their teeth so that is not necessary to come to the dentist as often. Some people have a fear of the dental equipment. This dentist often explains the use of the dental tools to patients so that the tools do not seem so strange. The loud noises of the drill are lessened by noise canceling headphones. Some people even opt to listen to their iPod.
