It’s rare to read a tweet on Twitter or post on Facebook “I’m at the dentist … so excited to get my mouth cleaned!” In fact, it is estimated that seventy – five percent of people have some kind of dental phobia, so they not only do not like to go there, but they are also afraid to examine their teeth.
1. Dentists want to help you, not torture you: Most people think they will torture them. But, in reality, they do not touch your mouth to hurt you, but most do it because they like to help people look and feel better.
2. A bad dentist can not ruin your teeth for life: Many people hate them because they have had a bad experience with one of them. They are not all equal. It is important to find the one that suits you best.
3. A healthy mouth is a healthy heart: Few people know that the mouth is a direct tunnel to the bloodstream. Gum infections in the mouth can end up affecting your heart. That’s why you need to get the consent of a dentist before any major cardiac surgery.
It has been proven that periodontal disease and gum disease are related to heart disease. If you eat oatmeal and are watching your weight, you should also go to the dentist. Going there regularly and keeping your teeth clean, helps eliminate the risk of spreading an infection from the mouth to your heart.
Virtually everyone has already had to make an emergency appointment. Having a relationship with a dentist will help you get an appointment faster when you need it. If you come as a new patient with an urgent problem, they might be less likely to fit into their already busy schedules.
5. A bright smile can get you a job: What’s the first thing people see when they meet you? Your smile! Having a bright smile and healthy gums during a job interview can give you the edge over other candidates.
