Posted on 6/3/2024 by Office - Boone DMD

When visiting a dentist, it is common to feel overwhelmed due to the dental machines, lights, or probing tools. The good news is that there are multiple coping mechanisms that you can adopt to ensure the process is stress-free.

Communicate Your Anxiety Issues


Ensure that you communicate your fears and concerns with us. We will take steps to ensure the entire process is easy. Our team ensures they explain the whole process so that you are aware of what to expect in each stage. We also recommend the best techniques to help you to relax and ensure you are comfortable during the appointment.

Breathing Exercises


You can try to adopt breathing exercises that will assist in relaxing your mind and ensure that you are calm. They help to minimize stress during your appointments. Make sure you close your eyes and take deep breaths.

Meditation


Anxiety is often worse when you sit in the waiting room or climb into your dental chair. Mediation helps to minimize stress and ensure you are calm. You can try closing your eyes and ensure your body is relaxed.

Guided Imagery


Another trick that you can consider is guided imagery. This helps you to visualize happy thoughts during a dental checkup. Try to think about your happy moments or any positive memories that you might have. This will ensure that you feel happy and are quite calm.

Distraction


Distraction is another method that will give you positive results. You can discuss this with us before the start of the procedure so that we can find an ideal distraction that works for you. For instance, you can watch a movie during the procedure. You can also consider wearing headphones and listening to your favorite music.

Dental anxiety is quite common, especially during invasive dental procedures such as tooth extraction or implant installation. We aim to ensure that you are calm and relaxed during the entire process. Please discuss your concerns with us, and we will be happy to assist you.
