Most people do not look forward to being in the dental chair. But for some, the anxiety can become so strong that it prevents them from going to the dentist entirely. This can result in problems even further than oral complications. Studies now link it to illnesses including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
It is important to gain control of your dental anxieties to ensure that you attend all of your appointments for your overall health. We have compiled our top five to calm the nervousness and get you through your appointments with ease.
We quite frequently have patients that are fearful and we take every step necessary to create a calm and pleasant atmosphere for each one of our patients. If you have additional questions about relaxation techniques and overcoming dental anxiety, please call South Tampa Smiles at (813) 289 – 0560. Our friendly staff is ready to help.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
