 A past negative experience at the dentist oftentimes creates dental anxiety, which makes your upcoming appointments scary. Our team wants you to have the best dental experience at our office, and we are happy to help you make that happen. We have some ideas that may be beneficial.

 First, find out more about the details about your procedure. Our dental team will be happy to explain the steps of your treatment so you can understand and know exactly what to expect. This will help you put at rest any worries, and help you relieve some stress.

Bring a comfort item or two to the appointment. This can be a blanket, a pillow—anything that might make you feel better in the dental chair. Feel free to listen to your own music, podcast, or show; focus more on the words than on the treatment. Many dental offices also have TVs available for use during procedures or cleanings; go ahead and watch that guilty pleasure show!

Finally, talk to our team about using a dental sedative during your appointment. Sedation can help you feel relaxed, calm, and comfortable in the hands of the dentist. This can soothe anxiety, and wash away worries. Speak with our team to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
