Here are a few tips for a Stress Free Dental Visit
At Greenhaven Family Dental, we know and understand that for many patients, dental anxiety is a very real issue. Every year, dental anxiety keeps many people from seeking the important care their smiles need, often waiting until it hurts. But the good news is that dental anxiety can be overcome. We've listed some tips you can follow yourself to ease your own stress.
*Don’t be afraid - it's O.K. to tell your dentist you are afraid or anxious. The more Dr. Roberts and his staff at Greenhaven Family Dental know about your anxiety, the more he and our dental team can do to help you feel relaxed, welcome, and at home.
*Allow extra time to arrive early and avoid the stress of heavy traffic.
*Breath deeply, as this helps with relaxation.
*Nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, is available for use with certain dental procedures.
*Ask questions about your treatment and care. The more you know, the less you have to be afraid of.
