Is there Anything That Can Help me with my Fear of the Dentist?

Yes. Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they will not go for dental treatment. Our dentists are sympathetic about these feelings, and you can ask our dentists about these ways to help.

How Can We Help?

Whatever your individual level of anxiety may be, our office is committed to making sure that your visit is as comfortable, quick and easy as possible. There are many solutions for dental anxiety, and we are ready to help.

Here are a few methods for easing anxiety in the dental office:

  • Communication:
    Informing us as to what you are afraid of is a great place to start. Often we can quell a fear simply by giving you correct or updated information. We will always keep you informed before, during and after your procedure, making sure that you understand what is going on and why we are doing it.
  • Calming Techniques:
    Many patients find it helpful to practice controlled breathing or to find distraction inside the room.
  • Listening to Music:
    With most procedures, the use of personal headphones and music is allowed. This is a great way to keep calm and pass the time while in the chair.
  • Oral Sedation:
    Depending on the nature of your procedure, various types of sedation may be available to you.
  • Taking Breaks:
    Let us know if you would like to take a short break during your treatment by signaling with your left hand.


How Does Relaxation Work?

When we are faced with a challenge or something we’re afraid of, such as a visit to the dentist, our bodies produce substances, which raise our anxiety. However, we can train our bodies to work against this anxiety, by learning to relax. It’s not possible to be anxious and relaxed at the same time, so learning relaxation helps control our anxiety.
