I have a terrible fear of going to the dentist yet I know I need to. What should I do?

If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Between 9% and 15% of Americans state they avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety or fear. The first thing you should do is talk with your dentist. In fact, if your dentist doesn\’t take your fear seriously, find another dentist. The key to coping with dental anxiety is to discuss your fears with your dentist. Once your dentist knows what your fears are, he or she will be better able to work with you to determine the best ways to make you less anxious and more comfortable.

The good news is that today there are a number of strategies that can be used to help reduce fear, anxiety, and pain. These strategies include use of medications (to either numb the treatment area or sedatives or anesthesia to help you relax), use of lasers instead of the traditional drill for removing decay, application of a variety of mind/body pain and anxiety-reducing techniques (such as guided imagery, biofeedback, deep breathing, acupuncture, and other mental health therapies), and perhaps even visits to a dentophobia clinic or a support group

How do whitening toothpastes work and how effective are they?

All toothpastes help remove surface stains through the action of mild abrasives. Some whitening toothpastes contain gentle polishing or chemical agents that provide additional stain removal. Whitening toothpastes can help remove surface stains only and do not contain bleach; over-the-counter and professional whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide (a bleaching substance) that helps remove stains on the tooth surface as well as stains deep in the tooth. None of the home use whitening toothpastes can come even close to producing the bleaching effect you get from your dentist\’s office through chair-side bleaching or power bleaching. Whitening toothpastes can lighten your tooth\’s color by about one shade. In contrast, light-activated whitening conducted in your dentist\’s office can make your teeth three to eight shades lighter.

I’m interested in changing the shape of my teeth. What options are available?

Several different options are available to change the shape of teeth, make teeth look longer, close spaces between teeth or repair chipped or cracked teeth. Among the options are bonding, crowns, veneers, and recontouring.

  • Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied to the tooth surface and hardened with a special light, which ultimately \”bonds\” the material to the tooth.
  • Dental crowns are tooth-shaped \”caps\” that are placed over teeth. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
  • Veneers (also sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth.
  • Recontouring or reshaping of the teeth (also called odontoplasty, enameloplasty, stripping, or slenderizing) is a procedure in which small amounts of tooth enamel are removed to change a tooth\’s length, shape or surface.

Each of these options differ with regard to cost, durability, \”chair time\” necessary to complete the procedure, stain resistant qualities, and best cosmetic approach to resolving a specific problem. Talk to your dentist to see if one is right for you.

Dental Bleaching

There are several types of dental bleaching products available for use at home, which can either be dispensed by your dentist or purchased over-the-counter.

Dental bleaching solutions. These products contain peroxide(s), which bleach the tooth enamel itself. These products generally rely on carbamide peroxide as the dental bleaching agent, carbamide peroxide comes in various concentrations (10%, 16%, 22%).

Peroxide-containing whiteners typically are in a gel form and are placed in a mouthguard. Usage regimens vary. Some products are used for about twice a day for 2 weeks, and others are intended for overnight use for 1-2 weeks. If you obtain the bleaching solution from your dentist, he or she can make a custom mouthguard for you that will precisely fit your teeth.

You also may want to speak with your dentist should you experience any adverse side effects. For example, teeth can become sensitive during the period when you are using the bleaching agent. In many cases, this sensitivity is temporary and should lessen once the treatment is finished. Some people also experience soft tissue (gum) irritation—either from a tray that doesn’t fit properly or from solution that comes in contact with the tissues. If you have concerns about such side effects, you should discuss them with your dentist.
