Dental Anxiety – Are you Suffering?

It’s time to visit a dentist and you are suffering from anxiety.  What can you do to get past this fear? Realizing you are not alone is only part of the solution.  Many advances in diagonsis and treatment have made a trip to the dentist more comfortable and less frightening than ever.

According to mouthhealthy.org there are some tips you can use to help you get past your anxiety:

  • Share your anxiety.

    If you’re tense or anxious, tell your dentist and the dental staff. Getting your concerns out in the open will let your dentist adapt the treatment to your needs.

  • Help yourself.

    Choose a time for your dental visit when you’re less likely to be rushed or under pressure. For some people, that means a Saturday or an early-morning appointment.

  • Wear headphones.

    If the sound of the drill bothers you, bring headphones so you can listen to your favorite music. Some dental offices even show television or DVDs. During the dental visit you might try visualizing yourself relaxing on a warm beach.

At Brogdon Dental, your comfort is our first concern.  We will address your worries by offering the finest, safest and most comfortable care available.  Call us today to set up an appointment and be sure to let us know your fears so we can help you to look forward to your dental visits instead of dreading them.  Don’t let your anxieties stop you from getting the care you need!
