An annual appointment – every six months – with our team here at Sierra Vista Dental is something that’s hugely beneficial to your oral health. However, quite a few people don’t look forward to their annual checkups, due to a number of problems. Today we’ll look at what those are and how you can combat them so when you come in to see Dr. Darren Haws, you’ll have a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
The most common reasons people don’t enjoy a dental visit is due to dental anxiety. This is a real problem that few people realize can be addressed through sedation dentistry, wherein a patient is put under a certain amount of sedation in order to relax them for the procedure.
Bad oral health
Another reason people don’t enjoy the dentist is because they’ve been slacking on keeping up their oral health, and don’t want to go in and find out they have cavities to be filled, or other oral health problems. The best way to combat this, obviously, is to practice good oral health every day. Brushing twice a day, flossing once, and using mouthwash are all easy things to do that’ll boost your oral health and make sure you have nothing to dread when coming in for your annual appointments.
