Dental Fear

Dental Fear


Here are a few ways to help you relax and make it through your next appointment:

Try sedation. There are different types of sedation options available, ranging from simple nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to general anaesthesia.

Try acupuncture. If you fear the dentist because of needles, this is probably not the best option for you. But a recent study shows that acupuncture may help to lessen dental fears.

Be honest with the office staff. Letting the office staff know about your dental phobia will allow them to help you from the moment you step in the door.

Talk to your dentist. If you have questions, concerns, irrational fears just ask! Trust is an important part of feeling comfortable during any procedure, from a routine cleaning to a not-so-routine root canal.
