Dealing with Dental Anxiety

If you aren't the biggest fan of visiting the dentist, you are not alone. You also don't have to live the rest of your life dreading every dental appointment, either. Here are some tips for you to overcome your anxiety about the dentist:

  • Keep in mind that modern dentistry has greatly advanced and that most treatments are pain-free.
  • Find a dental office that takes measures to relax you and put you at ease.
  • Ask your dentist questions about any procedures, so you fully understand what is happening.
  • Bring headphones so you can listen to relaxing music during your treatment.
  • If you have learned breathing exercises from yoga, Lamaze or any other classes, practice them during your treatment.
  • Reveal your concern in detail to your dentist so he or she can make any adjustments for you to feel more comfortable.
  • Keep up with dental hygiene to avoid anymore extensive treatments in the future.
  • Schedule your appointment for the morning so you won't have to spend all day worrying about the upcoming visit.
