It’s no secret that many people fear the dentist. The sound of the drill or the thought of getting a shot is enough to keep anyone from getting their teeth looked at by a dentist. What they don’t know is if they were to go to a Dentist In Katy on a regular basis most, if not all, of their visits would be pain free.
If you only went to the dentist when you have a toothache, then naturally you’re going to associate pain with the dentist. Often times people only think they know what to expect at a dental visit. Seeing peoples reaction toward a dentist or a dental procedure on television or when a person has a bad experience isn’t accurate. No one really talks about the positive experience at the dentist office but if someone has a bad experience they let everyone know about it.
Don’t let these experiences detour you from getting a healthy smile. Dentists do more then give shots and drill on teeth. When you go to a dentist a dental assistant will take x-rays of your teeth. These x-rays will show the dentist if you have anything wrong with your teeth, the roots of your teeth, or the bone in your jaw which can’t be seen by just opening up your mouth and looking inside.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time there may be a few things that needs to be fixed. If you go to the dentist every six months then there’s a good chance of having fewer cavities or none at all. Once the dentist looks at your x-rays the dentist or a dental assistant will clean your teeth. They use the machine that sounds like a drill. This one machine is used for many different procedures. Cleaning you teeth is painless.
After your teeth are cleaned the dentist checks your teeth and gums. They give you advise on how to keep your teeth clean and healthy until your next visit, give you a complementary toothbrush and toothpaste then send you on your way.
Going to a dentist should be a pleasant experience, not one of fear and anxiety. Schedule an appointment every six months and your trip to the Katy Dentist will almost certainly be pain free.
