Are You Ashamed to Go to the Dentist?

Being ashamed to go to the dentist is a common occurrence we see as a dental practice. Unfortunately, many patients avoid visiting the dentist because they hate the thought of it. At Dental Solutions, we’re incredibly passionate about making nervous patients feel welcome – so much so that we’ve even been nominated for a national award for our work surrounding this. Taking care of your health should be your first priority. We believe a fear of visiting the dentist shouldn’t be something that holds you back.

Investing In Your Health

Investing in your health is vitally important and is certainly not something that should be ignored. Many people are guilty of neglecting their own health because they’re too busy looking after others, where others simply don’t like the thought of going to the dentist. Often if you’ve had a bad experience at the dentist before, this can deter you from going again.

Why Are People Ashamed to Go to The Dentist?

  • They’ve received hurtful remarks about their teeth in the past
  • Years of neglect has resulted in poor oral health
  • They feel guilty about not looking after their teeth properly

If you’re ashamed to go to the dentist, you’re not alone. The hardest part is taking the first step – finding the perfect dental practice for you. Once you’ve found someone you think may be suitable, why not visit the surgery and see how you feel about the place? Speak with the dentist and let them know your concerns, explaining that you’re anxious so they know beforehand. This is a good opportunity to get to know the dentist, and you can also discuss the possibility of using a numbing gel if you’re afraid of any pain. When you finally do go for your appointment – why not bring a friend? Having their support may alleviate some of your worries.
