Going to the dentist can be stressful. Our team prides ourselves on taking great care of patients with dental anxieties. Here are some tips on what you can do to be more comfortable at the dentist.
Tell us that you have dental anxiety
The first step to making your dental visits easier is letting your dental team know how you feel! If you have had traumatic dental visits in the past, if you typically require more local anesthetic to get numb, or if you need to be able to take breaks, make sure you discuss your concerns beforehand.
Tell us how we can help
If you are especially nervous for your dental visits, let us know how we can help you! Sometimes simple accommodations, like going slowly, a weighted blanket, or an overhead movie can help.
Tell us if you would like to discuss dental sedation
If you think you need something extra to comfortably tolerate dental treatment, then we encourage discussing dental sedation. You can learn more by visiting our dental sedation page!
