A past negative experience at the dentist oftentimes creates dental anxiety, which can make your next appointments difficult. However, our team is dedicated to you having the best dental experience at Bethaney B. Brenner, DMD, LLC. We are happy to help you make that happen. Here are some recommendations to make coming to the dentist easier!
First, it may be beneficial to find out more about the details about your procedure or the cleaning process. Our dental team will be happy to explain your treatment so you can understand exactly what to expect during your appointment. Additionally, it may be good to fill out any new-patient forms before you arrive at our office. This may help you relieve some stress.
Consider bringing a comfort object to the appointment. It can be as discreet as special music on your device, or something more cuddly, like a blanket or a pillow. Feel free to listen to your music or podcast; being able to focus more on the words than on the treatment can be helpful. Many dental offices also have TVs available for use during procedures; go ahead and watch that “guilty pleasure” show!
Finally, ask about using a dental sedative during your appointment. Dental sedation can help you feel relaxed and comfortable, can soothe anxiety, and can wash away worries. Speak with Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
