You will really not be making any impression on the person you are communicating with unless your breath smells nice and safe. Taking care of your mouth and maintaining good oral health is everything a person needs. Many people are terrified of visiting the dentist, that may include the tools a dentist uses that scare the patients and not the dentists themselves.

Let’s find out the reasons why people don’t go to the dentist, most of which are silly:

The Drill

Entering the dentist’s clinic, the first thing almost everybody hears is the sound of the high pitched shrilling drill. Patients usually fear the sound of the drill and that is what that keeps them from visiting the dentist.

A Bad Dental Experience as a Kid

Children have the tendency to remember things that may have scared them during their young days. So, if there’s any chance their last visit to the dentist as a child was bad and unpleasant, they might not be able to fight the fear and go back.

Teeth Scraping

Having your teeth scraped during a medical treatment is something everyone despises. Teeth scraping creates a sound that makes people have goose bumps and shocks through the entire body.


There are many people who are scared of the fact their poor conditioned teeth might cause the dental staff to make fun of them.

Having a Cruel Dentist

Yes, there are dentists who act all nice and present us with a nice yummy lollipop at the end of the appointment. However, there are ones who have the bearing of a butcher and they literally slaughter the teeth of their patients, having no regard for how much pain the patient might be in.

These are some silly reasons why people don’t go to the dentist. As you can see, these reasons are far too arbitrary to compromise your dental health.
