There are many professions in the world that no one trusts, and in many cases it is has almost become a joke. No one trusts their estate agent and people groan in mock agony if a girl comes home saying she has met someone who turns out to sell houses for a living. No one wants to talk to a banker over dinner because everyone assumes that they are not only untrustworthy, but boring as well! Who would trust a lawyer with all of their secrets? Few people, it is just one of those professions that feels untrustworthy to us all. However, there is one profession that not only do people trust less than an estate agent, a banker, or a lawyer, but no one really likes either.
You have guessed it: your dentist. Often considered to be one of the worst professions, it is hard to pin down sometimes what we all have against dentists. After all, they are not that dissimilar to doctors who are held in very high esteem by the general population. Dentists keep people healthy, and help them to lead healthy lives. So why is it that we have a genuine dislike and mistrust of dentists? Well, it is probably because in most people’s minds, all a dentist ever does is bring pain to their patients. We have all experienced a painful and upsetting dental appointment, and why would you would to go back and see a dentist after that?
If you agree with all of this then you may be surprised to know that in the most part, all of that has changed now. There have been such strides in new dental developments that it is now possible for most dentists to offer pain free dental treatments to their patients, giving them the chance to experience a dental appointment without any pain whatsoever. It does not seem possible, does it? We have all spent our entire lives fearing the dentist for the pain that they will bring, and we have become so conditioned that it is difficult to imagine a dental appointment that does not involve pain and discomfort.
However, it is certainly true. There are many types of dental treatment that are now totally pain free, so that anyone who wants to get a dental problem sorted can go to their dentist and have a relaxing appointment instead of a stressful one. There are so many people who have avoided going to the dentist for years because they are so afraid of the pain that they will experience when they go there, and of course this only makes the situation worse because the longer that they stay away, the worse the dental problem gets. With pain free dental treatments they can now get the help that they so desperately need without the fear that they are going to be in agony. How many people are now going to have much better teeth because of pain free dental treatments?
For many, pain free dental treatments are a completely revolutionary idea that few believed would have been possible within the dental world, and many dentists are ecstatic to be able to offer this to their patients. After all, it must be frustrating being feared, disliked, and mistrusted as a person simply because you tend to people’s teeth! Perhaps when pain free dental treatments become the norm in every dental surgery across the country, more people when they are growing up will want to train to become a dentist? It would certainly encourage young people to consider it as a career option.
