As this Coronavirus is spreading through our community, I am super vigilant with washing my hands and everything that I touch.
I am super careful that I do not touch my face after I touch an object outside of my house.
But I’ll tell you what’s been happening to me.
I’ll drive up to the gas pump. I’ll get out of the car. I’ll put in my credit card. I’ll grab the gas nozzle, and I’ll turn the automatic pumping feature of the nozzle. Then I’ll sit there and think, “Ok, I just touched all these things that could potentially have the virus on them. Now remember Emilio, you can’t touch your face.”
Then I look at my hands and arms, trying to figure out which part of my body has not touched these foreign surfaces. I conclude that the inside of my elbow has not touched anything and I begin to aggressively and awkwardly begin scratch my face with THE INSIDE OF MY ELBOW.
Then I’ll say to myself, “What the ?!!? Why does this always happen? Every time I can’t touch my face, my face gets itchy.”
The brain is a remarkable thing.
Now, to me, that intense itch is VERY REAL. I feel it and as soon as I scratch, it goes away.
For many people, dental anxiety also, is a very real thing. It is usually initiated by a traumatic dental event. Usually it’s a childhood event.

It is usually initiated by a traumatic dental event. Usually it’s a childhood event.
For many people, just going to get their teeth cleaned, causes their anxiety to go up.
Luckily, at Dente we have a solution.
Oral Conscious Sedation is a series of anxiety reducing pills that help the patient relax, during their dental appointment.
Almost all of these patients will describe their Oral Conscious Sedation appointment, as THE BEST DENTAL APPOINTMENT they’ve ever had.
It is great that we are able to provide this great service to our patients.
If you have dental anxiety and would like to schedule an appointment, after the Stay at Home is lifted, call 773-292-1911. We are filling up our May schedule with appointments.
