Dental anxiety is real, and our dental team understands that. This is why we are happy to give you some tips to help you finally feel calm and comfortable at Love Family Dentistry. With our help, you can have a positive and carefree dental experience.

First, bring something that comforts you to your appointment, like music, blankets, and stuffed animals. If you listen to music, you might focus more on the songs than on the treatment your dentist is performing. Who knows, you might even find yourself tapping your foot! If you bring a blanket and stuffed animal, you might feel calm and comfortable during your appointment.

Second, find out more about what is going to happen during your treatment. If you know the steps involved, you will know exactly what to expect and you won’t have any surprises. This will help you solve any mysteries as well as relieve some stress.

Third, think about using dental sedation. At our office, we offer sedation dentistry that can help you feel calm and relaxed while you’re receiving treatment. This can even make you so calm that you’ll fall asleep or you’ll forget about your anxiety and worries! If you talk to our dental team about using a dental sedative, we will be happy to see if this is right for you.
