The first thing you should do is talk with your dentist. In fact, if your dentist doesn't take your fear seriously, find another dentist. The key to coping with fear is to discuss it with your dentist. Once your dentist knows what your fears are, he or she will be able to work with you better in determining the best ways to make you less anxious and more comfortable.
Sealants are a thin, plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth. These are usually placed on the back teeth (the premolars, and molars) to prevent decay. The liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel.
The American Dental Association offers these suggestions:
Ask family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for their recommendations.
Ask your family doctor or local pharmacist.
If you're moving, your current dentist may be able to make a recommendation.
Call or write your local or state dental society. Your local and state dental societies also may be listed in the telephone directory under "dentists" or "associations." The ADA provides a list of local and state dental societies on its website.
Visit more than one dentist before selecting one you feel you can build a good long-term relationship with.
