5–8% of Americans avoid dental appointments because of fear. We understand the anxiety that can be associated with dental visits. But here at Toothology, we go to great lengths to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Here are few tips to help you overcome your fear, as well as a few offerings we have to help you relax during your visit.
Meet your Toothology dentist before your treatment.
This is a great step to take to help you overcome your dental anxiety. Your dentist can talk you through the process, answer any questions you have, and help ease your worries about your treatment.
Consider using nitrous oxide or sedation options.
We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your appointment here at Toothology. For our patients with extreme dental anxieties, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), as well as sedation options. Call us today to talk through your options.
Make yourself at home.
Here at Toothology, we want you to feel at home in our office. That’s why we offer beverages, pillows and blankets to help you relax and feel more at ease during your appointment.
Music can help you relax, allowing you to shift your focus off of your dental procedure. Bring earbuds with your favorite music to help keep your mind off of it.
