We understand that many children will equate dentists with the boogeyman. Having someone poke around at your teeth for thirty minutes is a rather odd experience but one that shouldn’t deter you from coming to the dentist. If you or your child is nervous about their upcoming dental visit, we’ve got some tips for you.
Get Acquainted With Our ‘Office’
The Super Dentists pride themselves on the experience that patients have when they come to the dentist. We want patients to beg parents for a trip to the dentist, not to abscond when they hear the words dental appointment. For the past 20 years The Super Dentists have specialized in creating a dental environment that is designed around a receptive and fun environment for patients. Games can be found in our waiting area that serves to excite patients rather than scare them off. Our staff takes the utmost care to ensure that all patients are calm and enjoy their dental experience.
Remember Past Experiences
Before your next appointment, remember the last time you went to the dentist. Does that experience justify the fear that you now have of the dentist, or is it a bit irrational? Studies have shown that procedures such as root canals and wisdom tooth extractions have bad reputations and are in truth, not painful at all.
Find a Distraction
When you’re being examined, take your mind off of what’s happening by thinking about what you’ll do when you leave the dentist. Keep your eyes off of the dentist and on the colorful scenery that surrounds you. If the dentist permits it, use earphones to keep your mind distracted while you have your teeth cleaned.
The Super Dentists are the best orthodontists in the San Diego-Kearny Mesa area and as such know how to provide top of the line dental experience to patients.
