Scared Of The Dentist? Not Anymore! [BLOG]

Is the thought of going to the dentist for a routine cleaning and exam about as comforting to you as a walk through a haunted house?

You’re not alone!

Millions of people feel this way, and it’s keeping them from getting the dental treatment they need for better oral and overall health and an attractive smile.

That’s why your friends at Bell & Bell Dentistry in Frankfort, KY have gone the extra mile to provide safe, effective dental sedation for fearful patients like you so you don’t have to be scared of the dentist ever again!

Who Wouldn’t Be Scared Of The Dentist?!

With loud, scary sounds of drills and the sterile smell of antiseptics, who wouldn’t be afraid of visiting the dentist?

Here are some other common triggers fearful dental patients experience:

*You’re Not The One In Control*

Unless you happen to be a dentist yourself, chances are that you won’t really know what’s going on from one minute to the next during a dental procedure. And that lack of control can be pretty scary!

Here, we take our time, go at a pace you’re comfortable with, and thoroughly explain each step of your treatment so you don’t have to stress about the unknown!

*The Dentist & Staff Might Judge You*

The longer you avoid going to the dentist, the worse off your oral health becomes. If you ever muster the courage to return to the dentist, you’re probably afraid everyone will judge you about the condition of your teeth and gums.

Bell & Bell Dentistry, on the other hand, is a judge-free zone where you’ll be treated with respect and compassion!

*History Might Repeat Itself*

Hurt me once, shame on you. Hurt me twice… well, you’ve heard this before.

If you had a negative dental experience in the past, why would you subject yourself to the same abuse?

It’s natural to be afraid that history might repeat itself, but our Frankfort practice houses modern, patient-friendly technology and painless numbing tools to ensure a more comfortable experience!

*Other People Have Warned You*

They might be well-intentioned in giving you a heads up about the horrific dental treatments they’ve endured, but friends, family, and co-workers aren’t doing you any favors by sharing their own scary stories! It doesn’t prepare you for your appointment, but instead, it only intensifies your fear, stress, and anxiety.

We are a licensed hospital practice, and that means you get to choose the strongest method of dental sedation when you schedule your treatment at Bell & Bell Dentistry. Our trained dentists are able to safely administer and monitor your level of sedation to ensure your comfort and relaxation from start to finish.
