Mazel, I Am Nervous About My Dentist Appointment This Week. How Should I Prepare Myself?
What odd timing for this question. I just got my teeth cleaned last week. Going for a teeth cleaning can be very intimidating. There are so many unique sounds, sights, and smells. My little nose was going wild. I was so very nervous the veterinarian had to pick me up and bring me to the room. I was not going to walk back there if I could help it. Once I was in the room the veterinarian began to clean my teeth. All of my fears did not come true. Actually, my teeth are in great condition. I won’t need to go back for another 6 months. I can understand your concerns and being anxious about the dentist. I think that is normal for many people. It is natural to create a lot of anxiety about fearful situations and plan for the worse. I did that, but guess what? My experience was not anywhere near as bad as I created in my head. I hope you have a good experience like me!
