Most people suffer from one or more phobias, irrational fears that they can't seem to get a grasp of no matter how much they tell themselves that there's nothing to worry about. For whatever reason, one of the most common phobias among Americans involves going to the dentist. Although going to the dentist is rather important, especially for young children or for people that can't seem to get enough candy, you wouldn't know it if you took a look at American culture. From a very young age American society does everything that it can to scare people away from going to the dentist. Images of dentists holding drills eagerly awaiting to harm someone's poor tooth are very common in the country, and large numbers of people talk openly about how much they hate going to the dentist's office. Although there is simply nothing to fear at all at the dentist, people irrationally do fear it, and many of them put off their dentist visit for years at a time.
If you thought that people were scared to go the dentist, then how do you think they react when they're told that they need to make an appointment with an oral surgeon? People hate the idea of going to the dentist because they're never sure what they're going to be told. What if they learn that they need to have a tooth pulled or that they have their wisdom teeth growing in? Being told that you need to go to an oral surgeon skips the "what if?" part of all of this and jumps immediately to the panic of having to get surgery. People that are told they need to make an appointment with an oral surgeon generally start to feel quite a degree of panic, and many of them simply can't bring themselves to make the appointment until it's absolutely necessary.
This is why it is so important to find an oral surgeon that makes you feel comfortable. Going to an oral surgery clinic is a stressful experience, one that can be made much more stressful if you can't find an oral surgeon that helps to calm you. Your oral surgeon should be completely dedicated to making sure that you feel as comfortable as possible. They should be willing to answer any and all of the questions you might throw at them, to calmly explain what they are going to do during the surgery and what you can expect when the surgery is complete. They should have welcoming receptionists and staff members, people that make you feel welcome and that help to put you at ease. One such oral surgeon is Dr. Noori of Peak OMS & Dental Implant Center. Dr. Noori is truly dedicated to each and every one of his patients, working tirelessly to ensure that they feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
