1- Talk about your feelings.
Make sure you communicate, don’t be shy! You are not the first patient who ever felt nervous or anxious. Convey your concerns and fears before a procedure or if you experience any discomfort during your visit. Talking will make your dental experience more relaxed and pleasant.
2- Ask questions.
Once a treatment plan has been developed, ask your dentist to explain the procedures in detail. Knowing what to expect before it happens can help put your mind at ease.
If you are uptight or nervous prior to a procedure, talk to the dentist about ways to make the experience easier.
