Posted on 10/24/2022 by Dr Jonathan Ford
How to Calm Dental Anxiety and FearA large number of patients have a deep-seated fear of going in to see the dentist, and they usually try to calm themselves down ahead of their appointment. At our practice, we pride ourselves in being able to make our patients comfortable ahead of their appointment. We came up with the following ways to help you feel more comfortable during your next visit to the dentist.

Be willing to share your concerns with the dentist


When you are open concerning your fears, this will enable your dentist to explain the steps involved during your routine procedure in a way that is aimed towards calming you down.

Plans in advance


Before going in for a procedure, pick out a day that you are not busy and not on a strict timeline to be in another location. Doing so will your body be more relaxed.

Be mindful of your meals and water consumption


Before your procedure, it would be best to stay away from food with high sugar or caffeine intake as they will make you more nervous. Try calming food like tea that is caffeine free.

Try out breathing exercises


Being able to breathe in a relaxed manner is one best way to remain calm during a routine cleaning or other procedure. It will ensure the dentist is able to perform the examination properly.

Pay routine visits to the dentist, avoid cancelling appointments or postponing them.
