3 Tips to Help Manage Dental Fear

dca-blog_dental-fears-female-dentist-light

If the mere mention of a dental appointment makes you cringe, you may be one of the many people who suffer from dental anxiety. Some people refuse to see a dentist until they are in extreme pain. This may be due to dental fear and its related symptoms like shaking hands, nausea, and even heart palpitations. You may not realize that today’s dentistry addresses many patient fears, and procedures are optimized for comfort.

Here are three great tips to help you lessen your dental anxiety and get the treatment you need:

  1. To make your visit less stressful, schedule your appointment when you won’t feel rushed. You may find an early morning or Saturday appointment less demanding. Before your appointment, try practicing relaxation techniques or listening to some soft music.
  2. If you are afraid of dentist tools, or you’re worried about side effects of anesthetics, don’t be embarrassed to talk about it with your dentist. Once your dental team understands what makes you nervous, they can adjust the treatment to lessen your fear.
  3. If the whine of a dental drill makes you uneasy, wear headphones and listen to your favorite tunes during your procedure. Some dentists offer television or DVD entertainment to distract patients during treatment. If you’re not sure what options your dentist offers, ask the staff.

These techniques work to alleviate dental anxiety for many patients, but if they don’t help you, don’t give up. Talk to your dentist in Ocoee and your doctor about managing your dental fear. If conservative measures don’t work, you may benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy or anti-anxiety medications. Some trial and error may be required to find the right solution, but your healthy smile is well worth the effort.
