Who Shut The Door?

The other day, our babysitter called us and said Finn was having a panic attack.

Apparently, Finn got locked in his room and was unable to get out. His door handle sometimes sticks, and you have to apply a little more force to get it open.

He went to open the door and thought he was locked in. He began to scream and cry. The babysitter ran upstairs and opened the door.

His anxiety was at a very high level, and she was having a tough time getting him relaxed. So, she called me because she didn’t know how to calm him.

He could barely talk. He was crying and trying to talk at the same time.

I was just a few blocks away and went home immediately. He was still crying but not at the same intensity. As soon as I hugged him, he began to calm down.

This whole episode of fear and anxiety was caused because he previously got locked in one of our rooms. We have an older home. The hardware in the house is older and one time the doorknob came off while he was in the room.

He was probably in there for only about a minute. But he began screaming. Sarah and I ran upstairs and immediately opened the door. He was crying and shaking. He thought he was going to be locked in there forever.

Ever since then, he has had this fear of locking the door altogether.

Having traumatic events in our lives, helps create a fear in reference to that event or action.

People will have a rough flight and then develop a fear of flying.

People will have a scary event in a pool and then develop a fear of the water.

Dentistry is no different. A huge percentage of the population have a fear of the dentist.

Here at Dente, we recognize this common fear and offer Anxiety Free Dentistry.

We give patients anxiety reducing pills for their appointment. This makes their appointment more relaxed, and many will describe it as their best appointment ever.

If you are anxious about going to the dentist, please call us at 773-292-1911 or visit us at mydente.com to set up your Anxiety Free Dental consultation.

Emilio “Door Jam” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
