Defeat Dental Anxiety

woman_cheek_sadThese are a few tips to help make your visit to our office worry-free. Ask questions. If you understand what’s going to happen, you’ll have less reason to worry. Don’t drink caffeine – it doesn’t relax you! Oral exams are never fun. Eating a protein snack beforehand will help stabilize your blood sugar and reduce irritability. Establish a signal –raising your hand – to let us know you want to take a break.  It will make you feel more in control, and it gives you a chance to ask for more anesthetic if you feel any discomfort. Using headphones, listen to relaxing music. This will also muffle noises.  Don’t be afraid to ask us for a helping hand because that’s what we’re here for!
