It is important that the patient knows that we are here for them. They are not here for us, we are here for them. Patients have control over their dental procedures and they will not feel like they are a ‘mannequin’ being worked on but a human being with options. There are all sorts of ways that we can help make a patient comfortable and relaxed – local anesthesia, oral medications, nitrous oxide.
The key to maintaining pain free dental visits is early intervention. I’m asked all the time, “How long can I put this off?” My impression is “Why would you want to put it off?” The longer you go, the more extensive and the more expensive it may get and it can lead to things that may be a little bit more uncomfortable than people want to deal with.
