Our dentists and team understand that visiting the dental office can be stressful, and that many patients experience anxiety and fear during their dental appointments. We never want these feelings of fear, anxiety or stress to prevent you from receiving the care you need, and will work with you to help you manage dental anxiety and make your time at Grove Dental Center more comfortable.
Dental anxiety is a common concern that affects a significant number of patients. Our dedicated team is fully committed to ensuring your comfort and addressing your anxieties to provide you with the necessary dental treatments. We understand that dental anxiety can vary from mild worry to severe fears about procedures, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
To help manage dental anxiety, consider these strategies:
- Open Communication: Please share your anxiety or fears with our experienced dentists and team. By letting us know, we can tailor your care, take additional precautions and be alert to any signs of discomfort during your visit.
- Relaxation Techniques: Incorporate calming techniques like controlled breathing or focusing on distractions in the room to help ease your anxiety.
- Music Therapy: Bring your headphones and listen to soothing music during your treatment. Music can be a powerful distraction, helping you focus on something other than dental procedures and anxiety-inducing sounds.
- Sedation Dentistry: Inquire about our sedation options. Sedation dentistry is designed to induce relaxation, and we offer various types to suit your needs and preferences.
- Scheduled Breaks: If you begin to feel overwhelmed during your treatment, simply signal us with your hand, and we will pause to allow you a brief break to collect yourself.
- Alternative Treatment Options: Ask about alternative treatment methods. Dental advancements often provide equally effective results through different approaches, which may be more suitable for individuals with dental anxiety.
