I’m afraid of the dentist, how can you help?
If you suffer from some form of dental anxiety, take comfort in knowing that up to 15 percent of all Americans experience some type of fear of the dentist. Unfortunately, avoiding the dentist because of a fear of needles or feeling uncomfortable during cleanings and exams prevents you from receiving the dental care needed to protect your long-term oral health.
At Evergreen Dental, our team works hard to ensure that every visit is relaxing and stress-free. Dr. Travelstead takes the time to fully explain every treatment and procedure in advance, and will answer all of your questions and address any concerns, prior to administering care. By keeping your feeling informed, engaged and relaxed, we can hope to eliminate any anxiety and keep your smile looking its best.
How often should I schedule an appointment?
Dr. Travelstead and the American Dental Association recommend that patients schedule a dental exam and cleaning once every six months. Regular exams provide Dr. Travelstead with the opportunity to spot the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease while these types of problems are still easily treatable. Frequent cleanings provide our team of gentle dental hygienists with the chance to remove plaque deposits from the surface of your teeth and along the gum line before the buildup of bacteria can contribute to the development of gum disease.
