The Fear Of The Dentist
I know of no one that says, “I love to go to the dentist”. But I know of plenty of people, myself included, that would prefer to do most anything else, rather than go to the dentist. Why? Because we don’t want to be in pain, and we don’t want to hear the dreaded drills. It’s the fear of pain and the drill that prevents us from going to the dentist.
There’s a ton of reason why this isn’t good. It can be realistically argued that the mouth is where health and consequently disease starts at. What that translates into is simple: The care of the mouth impacts and effects all other parts of the body, thereby impacting your total health.
It’s Time To Take A Nap
Yes, I have to go there. What happens when you take a nap? You’re so not aware of anything going on around you. What that means is that you’re able to close the world our around you. Now let’s translate that to the dental off. You don’t want to feel a thing or hear anything. Enter Sleep Dentistry!
Yes, it’s just what it sounds like. You go to sleep and when you wake up the work is done. Yea!!! No noise, potentially no pain. Fast easy and you’re on the road again.
Who Is Sleep Dentistry Right For
How do you know if sleep dentistry were right for you? The simple answer is to ask your dentist! I’m not going to say what will and won’t work. It has the potential to be a complicated answer. Everything from medicines that you’re taking, to health issues. Let alone how those intermix with you or body. It’s an issue I won’t begin to attempt to unpack. That’s a liability I’m not willing to take.
So, contact your dentist especially if you have a lot of work to be done. Make a full disclosure as to what you’re taking. And any and all health issues that you may have. It’s your health, and it’s not worth the risk of not sharing with them.
