Are you afraid of visiting a dentist? It’s normal! Let’s face it – it is not fun and all the procedures a dentist needs to perform on you, are frequently painful. But what can you do? Some people take a stress ball and keep it in their hands or simply decide on being under anaesthetic. You can take a sedation or even ask your dentist for nitrous oxide. It’s a good solution for those people who have fear of needles. Even though you may hate the sound of dental drill, don’t go out immediately. Remember it’s all for your health.
