Q: At this point, it’s not the money. I just can’t get my spouse to get his teeth done. He has missing teeth and the ones that are left look awful. And, to top it off, he is in sales! Any suggestions?

A: Firstly, pass this column on to your loved one (after he has a martini or two.) The most common sources of dental phobia are a previous horrendous experience, sometimes while a child at the dentist.

Dentistry can win him back with new technology demonstrated at my up-coming seminar on the 13th of October. Examples: Computerized anesthetic devices and needle-less injections with nasal anesthesia; more numb less “ouch”, quieter electric drills vs. the high pitch of an air-turbine drill, headphones with music, Ativan doses ninety minutes before the visit to reduce anxiety, neck pillows for greater comfort, digital no-goop impressions; no more gagging and no-cut dental implant surgery that eliminates the scalpel and stitches.

As far as motivation for having veneers for a gorgeous smile, countless patients of mine have reported back on how they increased their business’s bottom line with the power of confidence gained in fixing up their teeth. (Not to mention the up-tick in their social lives!)

There is a psychological concept called embodied cognition that shows that humans think not only with their brains, but with their bodies, affecting our behavior. Example: often when we sport a new article of clothing at a special event, we tend to be more social, talkative and positive. In one study, when participants were given a clipboard to hold, they felt more important, organized and more mindful of what they had to do that day.

Hope to see you on the 24th where I will remove even more hurdles from the process of getting your dental work DONE!
