TORONTO, ON — Dental professionals have been telling patients they can get more out of life with more practice than the traditional dentists can manage.
But for some people, it’s not so easy.
Toronto dentist and family dentist John Ryde says that in order to truly appreciate the benefits of his practice, you have to practice the right way.
“It’s not like a medical professional, if you don’t practice the way they should you won’t get the results that they can,” said Ryde.
Ryde also says that if you are going to spend time in the dentist chair and you are having trouble sitting still, don’t wait for the doctor to correct your position.
“[If] you want to make sure you get the right tooth, you need to be able to do that,” said the Toronto dentist.
I know people that I’ve had a tooth pulled out, I’ve done it for years, they’ve never been able to sit still,” said Roddy.
So, if it’s your first visit and you’re like, ‘oh yeah, you know what? “
I’ve had to sit down and I’ve always been sitting back.
So, if it’s your first visit and you’re like, ‘oh yeah, you know what?
I can’t do this, it hurts too much, I don’t want to sit there’,” said Rydere.
He also said you need time to get comfortable with the dental chair.
For some, it can be a bit scary, and for some, the dentist can’t be bothered to explain why, if the patient is so upset, they need to move on.
Dr Ryde said the best advice he can give people is to try it.
