To have a comfortable experience at the dentist, it’s important you feel safe and relaxed.
- If you’re in doubt about anything, it’s important you ask in order for you to feel safe. For some, it helps to follow along with the dentist’s work with a mirror while others would rather not know what’s going on. It’s important you let us know what works best for you.
- If you suddenly feel pain or discomfort, it’s important you let us know in order for us to talk about it and perhaps provide pain-relief. Remember; you’re the only one who will feel any pain.
- It may help to take some deep breaths where the air is drawn all the way down into your stomach. This will help your body relax.
- It’s a good idea to set aside some extra time for your dental appointment to arrive early and so that you won’t have to run out the door afterwards. Make sure to arrive well-rested and relaxed.
- If music makes you relax, you can bring your earphones and phone and listen to some music that will make you feel comfortable.
- See your dentist before you feel pain. Regular check-ups are preventative and this is where we have the opportunity to discover any problems and step in with preventative efforts before the problem develops and before you feel pain.
