Anxiety At The Dentist? No Problem!
Do you experience anxiety or fear at the thought of visiting a dentist? If so, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the number one reasons why patients delay dental treatment or do not visit their dentist on a regular basis. Our Northborough, MA dentists are committed to helping patients feel more at ease throughout their dental visits. Here are some strategies for combating anxiety at the dentist:
- Share your anxiety with your dentist. Dr. Gauthier is dedicated to his patients and will take the necessary steps to make sure that you feel as comfortable as possible. Sometimes, simply sharing your thoughts can make you more relaxed.
- Schedule your appointment during the least stressful part of your day/week. This time varies among different people, but if you do not feel rushed or under pressure, your visit will be much more pleasant.
- If the sound of the handpiece or dental instruments is the source of your anxiety, consider bringing headphones to your visit and listening to your favorite music or an audiobook. Your fears may subside once you create a more calming and relaxing treatment environment.
Aside from the strategies mentioned above, it is important that you make regular visits to the dentist. Maintaining good oral hygiene defends against dental diseases and lowers the potential need for invasive dental treatment later.
