Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Our team has lots of experience in helping patients overcome their anxious feelings so they can receive the dental care they need. We have created a calming environment to help you relax. We also use patient-friendly technology and techniques to speed your treatment and keep discomfort at a minimum.

Can anti-anxiety medication help me relax at the dentist?

For some patients, this is the best option for overcoming dental anxiety. It might also help a patient get through a difficult or long procedure. If you are staying away from the dentist out of fear, call us to talk about all of your options for a comfortable procedure.

Are there steps I can take at home to relieve dental anxiety?

We believe the more you prepare at home, the better your dental experience will be. If you start to feel anxious about your dental work, take six to 10 deep breaths slowly. Doing so will help you relax and lower your heart rate. It also helps to picture yourself lying back comfortably in the dental chair. When it comes time for your appointment, you can also use these techniques in our office.
