Your Source of Anxiety-Free Dentistry in Turlock
Did you know that an estimated 40 million people in America avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety? At King Dentistry, we strive to provide anxiety-free dentistry. We understand there are many things contributing to those feelings of concern, and we’d like to help you feel more comfortable in our office. Many people in Turlock are concerned about feeling vulnerable or anticipate pain during the visit. Sometimes patients have had unpleasant experiences in the past. Others are bothered by the sterile sights and smells at the office. Unfortunately, this reluctance to schedule routine dental care can lead to significant oral health issues and could even affect your overall health. The good news is that there are some strategies to reduce anxiety about visiting the dentist.
- One of the most effective ways to soothe concerns over your visit is to talk to the dentist. You might express your concerns and discuss the best ways to communicate during procedures.
- Choose a preferred method of distraction. You could listen to the radio, focus your attention on something else or watch television.
- Create a plan for taking a break. When you visit with the dentist, discuss a sign for taking a pause. If you feel like taking a break, signal the dental professional.
- Discuss the medication options. Many dentists offer a variety of options, including nitrous oxide and other sedation options.
