Tricks for an Anxiety-Free Dental Visit

Posted .

Do you tend to feel nervous in the dental chair? If so, our dentist, Dr. Lawrence Zabner, would like to help you calm your fears and have a more positive and successful dental appointment. You deserve to feel comfortable in the dental chair! Fortunately, there are many tricks you can use to have an anxiety-free dental appointment. Those tricks are:

-Bringing comfort items: A favorite teddy bear, music and blanket can help you feel comfortable during your appointment, so don’t forget to bring them! You can even bring your mom and have her hold your hand while you’re treating your smile! The more comfortable you are, the better.

-Talking to our dental team: If you talk with us about your dental anxiety, we will go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed. We will also be as gentle as possible and discuss a “stop” signal with you if you need a break.

-Using sedation: Dental sedation can help you feel calm and relaxed in the dental chair. So, ask our team if it’s possible to make use of sedation dentistry.
