Does your upcoming Dental visit have you stressed?

Many patients carry with them a degree of anxiety when it comes to their dental visits. Occasionally these fears stem from a negative dental experience that they may have had as a child or even as an adult.

It is okay, you are not alone!!!

In fact, the latest statistics show 40% of the Canadian population have a strong fear of the dentist!

 At Smiling Dental we are here to help reduce your anxiety and make your visit as comfortable as possible.

Here are some tips we have on how to get yourself ready for your upcoming visit:

  • TIP 1.  CHOOSE SOMEONE YOU TRUST: Ensuring that you are comfortable and familiar with your dental care provider will help create a more positive atmosphere for your appointment. Select someone that you feel confident and comfortable around – it really will make a world of difference!
  • TIP 2. ANTI-ANXIETY OPTIONS: Discuss sedation options to help ease anxiety and keep you comfortable! At Smiling Dental our dentists are certified in conscious sedation and can help significantly lower your anxiety!
  • TIP 3. CALM YOURSELF: Before your visit, do a calming activity that you LOVE! Go for a slow jog, read a good book, meditate or play your favourite instrument!
  • Tip 4. SUPPORT: Bring a best friend, your spouse or a relative!  Having a supportive person with you can really change the feel of the whole appointment!
