If you’re interested in finding a way to dismiss your dental fears and finally feel better in the dental chair, then our Prescott Dental Group team is more than happy to help you!

When you come into our office and meet with your dentist, we recommend doing the following things:

-Tell us your fears and worries. If we know about your feelings, we will be able to alter your treatment so you can feel more comfortable and safe in the hands of the dentist.

-Focus on your breathing while you receive treatment. Try to breathe slowly and regularly. Oftentimes, it’s normal to hold your breath when you’re nervous, but when you hold your breath, your oxygen levels decrease and your panic increases. So the best thing you can do is take slow, deep breaths when you are at our office.

-If the sounds of the dental office bother you, bring a portable audio player with you and listen to music while you improve your oral health.

-Avoid consuming caffeine before your appointment. Caffeine will only make your heart race faster.

-Eat foods that are high in protein before coming into our office. Protein tends to provide a calming effect that can help you relax.

If you do these things, there is a high chance that you will finally feel more comfortable, safe, and relaxed in the hands of the dentist.
