Association suggests ways to create a stress-free dental care visit

Association suggests ways to create a stress-free dental care visit In an effort to raise awareness about the benefits of dental care, the American Association of Endodontists released tips on how patients can reduce their stress levels during a dental checkup.

The tips come in the middle of the third annual Root Canal Awareness Week, which ends on April 4. One of the goals of the week-long event is to dispel any misconceptions people may have about dental care such as root canals.

"Given that poor oral health and tooth loss are linked to many serious medical conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, we are committed to helping people overcome their fears to ensure they prioritize necessary dental care," said Dr. Louis R. Rossman. AAE president.

The association recommends people be open about their dental fears with their dentist on their first appointment, which may help ease some worries. Patients should also ask questions about the procedures they are about to get.

In a recent survey, the AAE found one in five patients say the noises from dental instruments is the root of their fears. To combat this Rossman suggested people may want to bring an MP3 player to distract them from the sound.
