Most people are aware that visiting your dentist bi-annual dental visit is essential to maintaining oral health. However, anxiety or stress surrounding dental visits is very real for some. In fact, over 36 percent of the population deals with dental anxiety.
Fortunately, there are ways to ensure your dental visit is comfortable –- even if you are anxious about it.
Read on for ways that can help you cope with dental anxiety and even enjoy your dental treatment.
Working through dental anxiety
First and foremost, it is key to communicate your dental anxiety to your dentist. Our staff will take extra care to communicate each step of your treatment to you. This can go a long way to help you feel comfortable and at ease.
You may also consider trying meditation or breathing exercises during your treatment. Some patients even bring headphones and listen to relaxing music during their treatment!
And finally, Dr. Milan offers options for sedation dentistry, or relaxation dentistry. This involves the use of medication to help you be relaxed and comfortable during your treatment and allow for our team to handle your treatment efficiently.
With an array of protocols, we work with you to choose the right option for you during an in-depth consultation. Your comfort is our priority!
