Making the decision to sign up for teeth realignment treatment can be a big one at the best of times, but if you’re a nervous dental patient it can be even harder.
We understand that some people find visiting dental professionals and orthodontists difficult, but we don’t believe those people should miss out on the smile of their dreams.
If you’re a nervous patient, there are many ways for you to work towards conquering your fear and moving forward with orthodontic treatment.
Always arrange a consultation appointment
It’s important to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible with your orthodontist before you start treatment. So much of a positive orthodontic experience is about trust. Arranging an initial consultation appointment is a great way to make sure your orthodontist is the right person for you and to start to built rapport with them.
Discuss your concerns
Our orthodontists are very experienced with all types of patients, including nervous patients. We’d love to be able to support you through this experience, but of course we need to know how you feel in order to do this! Discussing your worries and concerns with your orthodontist is a great way to break the ice build a trusting patient relationship.
Consider a removable retainer
There are many factors that weigh in on the decision of which type of treatment is right for you. If you’re a nervous patient, removable retainers may suit you better than fixed retainers as they involve less hands-on interaction from your orthodontist. Depending on the current alignment of your teeth, Invisalign could be a great choice for you.
