Dental anxiety is a real problem among millions of people throughout the United States. Whether it is the sights, smells, and sounds of a dentist’s office, past trauma, or a sensitive gag reflex that keeps you from remaining comfortable, you may find yourself avoiding upcoming appointments. The reality is that by continuing to put off your visits, you are increasing your risk for more serious dental problems (i.e., tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer). Fortunately, medieval techniques are a thing of the past, and if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, it’s time to consider how Dr. Michitti and his team at Lifetime Dental of Agawam can help you overcome your fears. With pain-free dentistry, you’ll be surprised how your experience will be effective, efficient, and more comfortable than you could imagine.
