    Tips for Coping with Dental Anxiety

    Last updated 27 days ago

    Dental anxiety is a real condition that stops people of all ages from visiting the dentist. Without regular dental visits, you could compromise your oral health.  If you suffer from dental anxiety, use the following tips to get past these fears and get the oral care that you need to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

    Talk to Your Dentist
    Your dentist can help you deal with this anxiety as long as you communicate your fears. Before your next appointment, you should sit down with your oral health professional to talk about your fears. Whether you are afraid it will be painful or you do not like getting services you do not understand, it is important to talk about your fears. Once the dentist knows what makes you anxious, he or she can make some changes to help you feel more comfortable. Sometimes, simply talking to your dentist about your fears is enough to help you relax before an appointment.

    Learn about the Dental Tools
    A lot of people are afraid of dental tools because they are unsure of what they do. If you feel very uncomfortable about the sounds coming from these tools, you should ask the dentist or the dental hygienist to walk you through how they work. This will give you the knowledge you need to feel better about your fears so you can get your dental treatments.

    Ask about Sedation Dentistry
    If you have a severe case of dental anxiety, you might want to talk to your dentist about IV sedation. This dental care option will help you work through your anxiety to get the necessary treatments. In addition, IV sedation can make it much easier to relax the next time you go to the dentist.

    Oak Creek Dental Care offers IV sedation to help our patients get past their dental anxiety. As a full-service dental office with some of the best dental technology in the Columbus area, we help our patients get the treatments they need.

    Busting Myths about Root Canals

    Last updated 1 month ago

    The roots of a tooth keep the tooth in place. They also encase the pulp, which holds the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. If decay reaches the pulp, it can cause significant pain. If your dentist has suggested a root canal to get rid of this damaged pulp, keep reading to learn the truth behind some of the most common myths about the procedure.

    Myth: A Root Canal is Painful
    Most people believe that root canal therapy is a painful procedure. In actuality, this treatment relieves the pain that the infected pulp causes. New advancements in dental technology make this procedure easier than ever. Most patients experience no more discomfort than they would when they get a cavity filled. Remember, if you visit the dentist for root canal treatment, you are probably already in pain. This treatment will help you get rid of this pain.

    Myth: A Root Canal Can Cause Other Health Issues
    Almost 100 years ago, Dr. Weston A. Price started the myth that root canals lead to other illnesses. At the time, medical experts did not have the same level of understanding about how health treatments work. According to the American Association of Endodontists, there is no scientific evidence that connects root canal therapy to other illnesses in the mouth or other areas of the body. In fact, a root canal treatment actually removes bacteria in the infected area, which can prevent more health issues.

    Myth: It Is Better to Pull the Tooth
    Some people believe that pulling a tooth is more effective than getting a root canal. Dentists do whatever they can to salvage natural teeth, though, which means they will always opt for a root canal over an extraction if possible.

    Whether you need a root canal or a routine cleaning, schedule an appointment with the dental experts at Oak Creek Dental Care to enjoy some of the best oral health services in Columbus. Our dentists combine state-of-the-art technology and valuable experience to provide our patients with the best care. To learn more, call (614) 682-8345.
