If you feel nervous or anxious in the dental chair, then it’s time to figure out what works for you so you can have a more positive dental experience! Our dentist, Dr. Seyed Ghorshi, is happy to help you relieve your dental anxiety by giving you the tips you need. Those tips are to do the following things:
-Bring someone you trust with you to your appointment. This can help you feel more comfortable because they will be by your side holding your hand. They can even tell you stories to keep your mind off the treatment and they can even oversee everything that happens in your mouth. That way they can reassure you that everything is alright.
-Bring a distraction. This can be anything that keeps your mind off the treatment, like music, TV shows, podcasts, audiobooks, and more. Just put your headphones in your ears and enjoy while we treat your smile!
-Try relaxation techniques. Breathing exercises can help slow your heart rate and help you feel more calm and relaxed.
