Overcome dental anxiety naturally
Did you know that millions of Americans struggle with dental fear and anxiety? It is a common condition that affects patients of all ages. It can leave patients with poor oral health if they choose to avoid their dentist because of being nervous about their upcoming appointments. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates of Natural Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, understand that dental anxiety may be a fear that keeps a patient from getting to the dental office for necessary work. If you want to overcome your dental anxiety before your next appointment, our team focuses on holistic and natural solutions.
What are some natural ways to overcome dental anxiety?
Patients have many options available to help them feel at ease before and during their visit. Below are just a few of the more natural and holistic ways to manage and overcome dental anxiety before they visit our Clearwater, Florida, area practice:
- Support from friends or loved ones. Talking about your fears with those you care about can help relieve some stress and help make you feel supported throughout the appointment. Have a friend come with you for your appointment to relax before entering the treatment room
- Taking time for yourself beforehand. Spending time doing an activity or hobby that makes you happy is the perfect way to reduce anxiety. Still, it is also great when you must focus on managing any anxious feelings related to upcoming appointments at our practice.
- Bring music that calms you. Many patients love to close their eyes and relax with calming music on their phones for easy access and a calming feeling. During your dental appointment, we welcome you to bring music and headphones to your visit to the dental chair.
- Talk to your dentist. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates regularly work with dental anxiety patients, so you are not alone. When you converse with our team about your dental anxiety, we can make recommendations to consider when it comes to calming your nerves for your upcoming visit. We often talk to patients throughout their treatment so they know what to expect and feel better prepared for their treatment.
