If you are suffering from dental anxiety, it is important to make sure your anxiety and stresses are dealt with before any oral healthcare procedures are given. Numerous treatments are available to assist you.
It is essential to work on your breathing to help calm and relax your body and mind. You can do this by breathing slowly and deeply and keeping track of your breathing rate. In addition, relaxing music, meditation, squeezing a stress ball, and asking questions, have all been shown to be effective at lowering or eliminating dental anxiety. If you need a local anesthetic, nitrous oxide or sedative to assist you with your oral health care treatments, let your dentist know so they can administer the proper treatments.
If you find yourself suffering from dental anxiety, the best thing you can do is talk to your dentist about it. Our team has many treatments and procedures in place to help calm our patients to ensure they have the best possible experience while receiving the finest possible treatment. In addition, there are a number of techniques to employ to help prepare you for a visit to your dentist office.
