Dental anxiety can strike at any age. You don’t have to feel ashamed. If this is something you experience, feel free to tell Dr. Ronald D. Walker all about it. That way we can prepare to make sure that your visit will be comforting, pleasant, and beneficial for your health. Here is some advice that might help you at the dental office:
– If you are feeling intense anxiety, just breathe slowly and deeply to relieve stress and lower your dental anxiety.
– You may feel too embarrassed to speak up if you still feel discomfort after an anesthetic, but it is important that you do so. Anesthetics work on different levels for each person. If you let us know, you can get the dosage that you need.
– Listening to calming music or a comforting audio book can help you during your dental procedures, as some people experience dental anxiety based on the noises at the office.
– Establish a signal with our dentist to tell him if you ever need a break or feel uncomfortable.
