Dentist office serving the areas near Philadelphia offers patients solutions to dental fear

David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is serving the areas near Philadelphia offers patients solutions to dental fear

Do you find your palms sweating and your breath coming fast if you think about heading to the dentist? You are not alone! Millions of American adults have dental anxiety, with 15 percent of the American population enduring dental phobia. This anxiety causes many to avoid going to the dentist for routine care or even emergency services. David Spilkia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, serving the areas near Philadelphia, wants to help even the most fearful of you get the healthy smile that you deserve. If you are looking for a dental office that can assist you with your anxiety, you’ve found the right place!

How dental anxiety affects your overall health:

Regular dental visits are paramount to maintaining a healthy mouth and gums. No matter how effective you think your oral hygiene routine is, there’s only one way to ensure prompt treatment for gum or tooth problems, and that’s routine professional cleanings. When these are skipped, it leaves your teeth open to tooth decay, cavities, and bad breath. This affects your emotional wellbeing by leaving you with a feeling of self-consciousness. Chronic infection of your teeth and gums can ensue if it goes untreated. This can lead to a compromised ability to chew and digest properly, an impact on your speech patterns, and even heart disease. There is hope though! Dr. David Spilkia has almost thirty years of experience treating all levels of dental problems in patients of all ages. That means even if you haven’t been to the dentist in years, he can help you achieve a happy and healthy smile again!

Potential causes of anxiety:

How dental anxiety affects your overall health

  • Parental influence: The way your parents behave about dental visits can affect your view on them as an adult.
  • Prior painful or negative experiences: Whether it happened when you were a child or an adult, a painful dental visit can leave you hesitant to return.
  • Embarrassment: Some people feel reluctant to go to a dentist and be judged for the state their teeth are in due to the length of time since their last visit.
  • Fear of how you will be treated: Some people report avoiding the dentist due to an anxiety that they will be treated with scorn or ridicule for neglecting their teeth.

    It's my first time giving a star rating to a dentist but I did like this one. I've been searching for a dentist and found the cleaning to be painful and some locations as they tend to just rip your gums apart. I'd recommend this office because the ladies here treat you like a family member and the place is immaculate (however one spells immaculalte - english isn't my major). anyway, I travel 4-hours from Maryland to Philadelphia just to see this dentist because he's just that good. I'm not kidding. If there were ten stars, then he'd get all ten...anyway before I ramble on and on, I've got to drive back to Maryland so just drop by and the ladies here will help. p.s. they are not hard on the eyes either.

    I have never reviewed a medical professional before, but Dr. David Spilkia is the best cosmetic dentist here in Philadelphia, PA ;( and I've had at least 10 dentists in my lifetime). I've been with him for about 1.5 years now so I feel comfortable recommending him.

    Thank you Dr. Spilkia for your caring professional services.In my last visit I spent almost 3 hours as you preformed a root canal and made my new crown. I would never have believed a person could actually nap through a root canal!

    I may be a little biased since Dr Spilkia is a close friend of mine; however he is the best dentist here in Philadelphia, PA I've ever had. I grew up with a phobia of dentists, but when he became a dentist many years ago, my fears quickly subsided thanks to his chair side manner. He has you feeling comfortable from the minute you step in. He is the only dentist I know of who actually phones you the day following major dental work to see how you're doing. Aside from being a great dentist, he really cares.
