Dental Anxiety Relief Tips

Posted .

If you are terrified of the dental office and everything associated with it, Dr. Ira J. Dolnick and our team have some tips that can help you finally relieve your dental anxiety and fears!

Dental anxiety is real, so don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed about it. Our Dolnick and Associates team wants you to have the best dental experience possible, which is why we are happy to help you in any way we can. For a successful dental appointment, we recommend doing the following things:

-Tell us about your fears. If we know about how you feel, we will be able to cater to your needs and alter your treatment so you will feel more safe and comfortable.

-Focus on your breathing during your dental treatment. If you take deep, slow breaths, the chances of you feeling relaxed will increase.

-If the sound of the dental drill bothers you, we recommend bringing a portable audio player with you so you can listen to music during your treatment.

-Avoid drinking caffeinated beverages before your appointment. Caffeine tends to make the heart race.

-Try to eat high-protein foods before your visit. These foods produce a calming effect and will help you relax.
