Do you stay awake at night worrying about your dentist appointment the next day? Have you put off dental treatment for fear of what will happen once you sit in the chair? You’re not alone. Almost 15% of Americans avoid dentist visits because of fear. However, it is still important to visit the dentist regularly to maintain a healthy smile. There are a few tricks to help calm your nerves at the dentist office.
Talking to your dentist about your fear is an excellent way to ease dental anxiety. If you have questions about the procedure or pain, your dentist can explain the procedure and make you more comfortable. The dentist might decide to anesthetize or numb an area of your mouth if the procedure is more invasive, so you won’t feel pain.
Some dental offices are equipped with TV monitors to distract you. You can watch a movie or play a video game to take your attention away from having your teeth cleaned or cavity filled. If your dentist does not have a TV, consider bringing your mp3 player to listen to music while you’re in the chair, or simply let your mind wander.
If a dental procedure is particularly long, anxiety can build up and you might begin to feel claustrophobic. Taking a break can ease that anxiety. Be sure to talk to your dentist beforehand and work out handle signals you can use, if you can’t speak, to let her know you need a break.
In some cases, sedation dentistry is an option. Patients are either partially or fully unconscious for their dental procedures. When they are over, they have very little memory of the treatment.
Whether your anxiety is mild or acute, our dentists at Dental Care of Stamford will make sure you’re as comfortable as possible for your procedure. We provide professional cleanings, cosmetic dentistry services, TMJ treatment, orthodontic services and kid’s dentistry. If you have questions or concerns, call us at (203) 803-1815.
Dr. Dana at Dental Care Kids is great! She really makes the kids feel comfortable and even got my 3 yr old son to let her brush his teeth with the tickly brush with no screaming or tears. And they know they are getting a goody bag when they leave, so they are happy to go there. It really makes for a positive early dental experience.More
