Firstly, you can take solace in the fact that you are not alone. A significant percentage of adults suffer from some level of fear of dental treatment. However, given the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums to your overall
health, it is imperative that you find a way to deal with these fears. In our clinic we offer a range of techniques to help our patients reduce their anxiety.
Here are a few ideas that you might consider:
While in the dental chair visualize yourself in a comfortable place for example a warm sandy beach.
Avoid drinking beverages that contain caffeine before your appointment.
Ask us lot's of questions about your treatment. Quite often fears of the unknown are the worst fears of all. Our ultimate goal is to enable our patients to receive dental treatment in a comfortable state of mind.
