Using humor to help combat dental fears.

Posted on Aug. 11th 2017 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Fear No Comments »

In the March 9th 2010 issue of the British Dental Journal Scientists in Sweden have discovered that some of the most important factors in managing stress during a visit to the dentist include optimism on the part of the patient and an atmosphere of humor in the interaction with dental staff. ‘Psychological barriers can be broken down by humor, both as a result of the patient and the dentist coming together more as equals, and as a result of humor reducing stress, increasing well-being and creating a pleasant atmosphere,’ said Dr Bernson.

Second Dental Opinion, Having teeth pulled need advise.

Posted on Jun. 10th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Fear, Dental Help, Extractions 1 Comment »

So I will be having four baby teeth pulled on Monday.  I am very nervous about having this dental work done.  I am an Adult of 22 years of age but had four baby teeth that never came out.  Which made the adult teeth come in all crooked.   My parents could not afford to do much with regards to having my teeth taken care of.  The only thing they could afford was the cleanings twice a year.  I was very lucky never to get any cavities.

I have not been to the dentist in over seven years.  I use to go to the dentist regularly before I had a really bad dentist that messed up a root canal and I have not been back since getting that fixed.   I guess I am afraid of dentist because of that experience.

I only have my bottom wisdom teeth

I went to the dentist the other day and was told that I have only my bottom wisdom teeth coming in.  Since the dentist at this time said they have room and not causing any problems to let them come out.  The thing is I have no top wisdom teeth.  Is that normal to get just the bottoms and not the top?

Wanting a reason to smile

Posted on Dec. 5th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Cavities, Dental Fear, Dental Help, Hygiene 3 Comments »

Messed up teeth are giving me the blues.

This is hard for me to write about but would like some advise on what to do.  To start with I am 32 and my teeth are so bad that they hurt I can only eat soft foods because I am afraid to eat anything to hard for fear of braking my teeth.  I know I have no one to blame but myself for he problem that I am now facing.  When I was younger I just did not take good care of my teeth like I should have.  My mom was poor so we did not have much and going to the dentist  was always costly for her.  She told me and my brother that we needed to brush extra well and to floss every day because she could not afford to fix our teeth.

Too Scared to go to the dentist

Posted on Nov. 23rd 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Fear, Dental Help 2 Comments »

Need a cleaning but scared of going to the dentist.

I know that my teeth has plaque build up on them.  It has been a few years since I have been to the dentist.  Although I know I need to get them clean, I am afraid the dentist is going to hurt me.  How much does it hurt to get your teeth cleaned?  If I have a lot of plaque will it hurt more to have a dentist scrape it off?  Hate to go now I have to please advise me on what kind of pain should I be expecting.

Mean and cruel dentist

Posted on Nov. 17th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Fear, Dental Help, Extractions No Comments »

I just do not understand why my dentist is so cruel

I took my son to the dentist today and they wanted to extract one of his teeth since it could not be saved.  The problem is that the dentist wanted to do this to my son while he is still awake.  I told him I would want to put my son under so that he is asleep while they rib out one of his.  The dentist said it was unnecessary,  and that he will not use  a general anaesthetic for a simple extraction.  I left the dentist and called two others, who  more or less said the same thing.  Are dentist even  human? Or are they all nuts? I do not want my son to have to be awake for something like that.  Give me a brake  he is only eight.
