How to Overcome your Fear at the Dentist?

Putting off dental treatments because of fear and anxiety can have severe consequences for your oral and overall health. 

At Arden Dental Care in Sacramento, California, we are sympathetic towards patients' dental anxiety and fears. Here are some valuable tips to help you overcome your fear at the dentist and reduce any concerns that may be preventing you from receiving regular dental care:

Talk to Your Dentist

Our staff at Arden Dental Care are equipped to help patients feel comfortable while undergoing treatments. We can schedule a preliminary consultation before your treatment to answer any questions so that you can feel confident that your dental concerns will be addressed gently and effectively.

It is also critical that we understand the root cause of your dental anxiety to help you overcome it. Most fears develop from a painful experience, or the fear can be passed on from others. Once we identify the exact cause of your anxiety, we can design a plan to reduce your nervousness. 

Distract Yourself

We do our best to create a relaxing atmosphere in our dental office to make your visit a calm and comfortable experience. However, some patients still have anxiety about all the sights and sounds of a dental office. We offer various comforting techniques like soothing music during your treatment to help you relax while our dentist performs the procedures. We also provide other aids such as weighted blankets, headphones, and aromatherapy.

We also use the latest innovative technologies to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed and you spend as little time as possible in the dental chair. In addition, we recommend you have a family member or a friend accompany you to your dental appointments. Their presence may provide the security you need.

Explore Sedation Dentistry Options

If you are trying to overcome your fear of dentists, dental sedation may be the solution for you during your first few appointments as you become more familiar with the office. Our team will discuss the best sedation and pain management solutions for you, to make your treatments comfortable.
