Whatever dental procedure you’re facing, it could be anything from a filling to root canal therapy, even an extraction will be easier if you know what to expect ahead of time. The unknown is scary and being afraid will only increase your tension and anxiety and create a stressful atmosphere for everyone involved.
Your dentist will make his diagnosis at the time of the exam, he will discuss the circumstances with you, suggest a treatment and together you will decide how to proceed. Whatever the treatment plan may be it will be done at a second appointment so there will be plenty of time for your dentist to explain in detail what the procedure will involve if sedation will be necessary and if so what kind, how long it will take and if there will be any significant recovery time.
A timeframe is important so that you can plan the appointment and arrange for a friend or relative to take you to and from the office if necessary. You will also want to know if you will be going back to work or pick up the kids from school or if there will be any after effects from the procedure that could keep you from going on with your day. Have the conversation with your dentist so that you can be prepared for your appointment.
