How to Keep Calm at the Dentist Office

Posted .

If you feel anxious about your dental appointments, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is common. Here at Gentle Touch Dental in Conyers, Georgia, we are proud to give you high-quality care and are happy to talk to you and work with your dental anxiety. That is why we are providing you with information on dental anxiety, so you can feel more comfortable in our care.

The first thing to keep in mind when it comes to the dentist is, to be honest. If you are feeling nervous or uncomfortable in any way, it’s ok. Be sure you talk to Dr. Dexter Inniss or a member of the dental team about your feelings, so we can help you feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

Many people find aid in listening to music during treatment. Wearing headphones while listening to movies or music can make many people feel more calm and relaxed while sitting in the dental chair. An excellent idea is to work out a signal system with your dentist. You can try to raise your hand or tap the seat if you need a pause while you are being examined. This will help your doctor understand your feelings while helping you feel in control of the situation to help keep you relaxed.
