Dental anxiety is a real issue in the world today. Unfortunately, many people experience it. If you’re one of these people, Dr. Anthony Foster and our dental team have some tips that can help you finally feel comfortable in the dental chair.
First, bring music or something that comforts you to your appointment. If you listen to music, you might focus more on the words of the songs than you do on the treatment. Who knows, you might even break into song! You can also bring a blanket and pillow to help you feel calm and comfortable during your appointment.
Second, ask our dental team the details about your treatment. If you know every step of your appointment, there is a chance you’ll feel less nervous. This is because your treatment will no longer be a mystery to you and you will be prepared for all that will happen.
Third, consider using dental sedation. At Foster Dental, we offer a dental sedative that can help you feel calm and relaxed while you’re at our office. This can even make you fall asleep or forget all of your worries and anxiety! If you talk to our dental team about using a dental sedative, we will be happy to see which sedative is right for you.
