Dentists are evil

I have a question for you. Why can’t dentists do an appointment without torturing their patients? I have gotten to the point where I don’t want to go anymore.

You’re not the first person to wonder if dentists weren’t just a little bit sadistic. However, most dentists go into the field because the like to help people and want to fix things.  I will admit some are more skilled at being gentle than others.

Because of that, a lot of people have dental anxiety.  That can actually exacerbate the situation. However, it is a little unrealistic to think a patient can just stop being fearful.

One thing that can really help is sedation dentistry. This can give you a totally pain free appointment.  In fact, depending on which type of sedation you choose, it’s possible you could not even remember the appointment at all.

I hope this helps.
