If you want to be able to have the best possible dental experience, then you need to make sure you are openly and honestly communicating with your dentist. That's how you get the best experience from the dental chair.
What You Need to Talk with Your Dentist AboutEverything of any importance that goes on within the confines of your mouth is fair game for you to talk to your dentist about. They need to know if you hurt your mouth, and how you hurt it.
They need to be made aware of worries or fears that you may have. You need to talk to them when something feels off within your mouth so they can take a look.
If you need something specific from your dentist to feel calmer while under their care, tell them so. They are likely willing to do anything they possibly can to ensure you have a great experience. After all, that means you are more likely to return. You just have to let them know what those things are in order to make sure they know to provide them to you.
