Fear - Fear at the dentist's
Fear at the dentist's
80% of the Dutch adults fear a dental treatment. 800.000 Dutch people do not even see a dentist because of this fear. When they have not seen a dentist for a long time, they will become more and more afraid. This will create problems and indue course cavities in teeth will appear and teeth will crumble.
It is important to realize that the techniques in dentistry have improved a lot in the past 15 years. The "dentist of today" is not the same "dentist from the past". Nowadays every dental treatment can be accomplished without any pain because of good anaesthetic. Because of good communication it is possible to treat every patient, even if they have fear.
Dental fear and Dental Centre Wilhelminapier
A lot of people are afraid of going to the dentist, so you do not have to be ashamed of this. Just tell the assistants when making the appointment that you have fear. Our experience is that good communication and sometimes premedication (medication which is prescribed one hour before the treatment starts) will make you more calm. Besides, in our dental centre, it is you who will be in command of the treatment. When you give a sign for a break we will respect that. In this way we try to help you with your dental problems AND help you to control your fear. The intent is that you will be able to continue your visits to a dentist. Only then we have really helped you!
