Do you find your friends subtly scooting away from you when you’re talking in close quarters? Does your desk neighbor at work offer you Tic Tacs and gum way more frequently than she should? Are you constantly breathing into your hand to see what others may be smelling?
Do you fear to go to the dentist? Maybe you have a fear of shots, a strong gag reflex or have had a previously traumatic dental experience. Well, we’re here to tell you that you’re not alone because 30-50% of Americans suffer from dental phobia.
The first step in this process is to set up an appointment and come in to either one of Picasso Smiles Dental’s El Paso-based offices for a consultation. During the first visit, your dentist will take X-rays of your mouth to determine if oral surgery is the right treatment for you. X-rays are critical to seeing exactly how the wisdom teeth have established themselves in your mouth and figuring out the simplest way to extract them.
