Terrified of the Dentist – Dr. Adyan

This patient of mine was genuinely terrified of the dentist.

He tried to avoid going to the dentist his whole life until one day he had to surrender because he was in so much pain.

When he came to the clinic, I saw how he hesitated to sit on the dental chair.

His fear of the dentist was evident.

I had a chat with him to calm him down until he was finally ready for the check-up.

After a thorough examination, I noted that one tooth was badly broken and had to be taken out. On top of that, many teeth had caries (decay) that needed fillings.

He went through the tooth extraction like a pro as he managed to calm down at the visit. We talked again and I advised him that there were multiple fillings needed to be done.

Previously he would have said no to any dental treatments, but now he had realized the importance of taking care of his teeth, and he no longer had any fear of the dentist.

It turned out that a dental visit wasn’t so scary after all.

So in the subsequent visits, he really did show up and we managed to do some fillings for him.

After all of him gums heal later, we’re planning to replace the missing teeth.

So are you like this patient of mine? Are you still afraid of the dentist?

The only way to get rid of that fear is to give us a visit and realize that we/re not that scary after all. In fact, you’ll be excited to come again to the clinic!

Be sure to give your teeth a proper care and give us a call now!

See you soon!

Lots of love,

Dr. Adyan
