Personally, I once feared dentists, but after awhile I thought that what they do is mild compared to the other treatments or medical routines I get. One example is having a facial.

The pain is unbearable, that the next time you go to a dentists you will feel that the pain there is really mild compared to the devilish facial. 

What I am saying here is this. Though you might have an irrational fear of dentists, you must visit them regularly for preventive dentistry. You see, once you lose your teeth it is gone. And you wouldn’t want to live your life with a toothless smile right? So visit your dental hygienist regularly and be sure to take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing daily. Your teeth are your pearls. Take care of them. If you need another reason why you should practice proper oral hygiene, heart disease has been linked to dental health.
