Are you delaying vital dental appointments due to fear and anxiety? Dental anxiety and fear are common conditions that affect many people. However, if appointments are put off for too long, you may develop severe oral health issues with long-term consequences. Keep reading as we at Dental Specialists of Broward Group explain how to overcome your dental anxiety and fear.

Seek Support From Others

Even if it feels that way, you are not alone in your fears and anxiety. Talk to your friends or family members who have had dental procedures or might have gone through similar experiences. You can even seek support from dental professionals who know how to handle anxious patients and can help you feel more at ease.

Practice Relaxation Techniques

Before a dental appointment, there are relaxation exercises you can try that may help calm your nerves. Deep breathing exercises, meditation, and visualization techniques might ease your anxiety and boost your mood. You can also try listening to music or reading a book to distract you from your fear.

Communicate With Your Dentist

During your appointment, be honest with your dentist about your fears, so they can take measures to make you feel more comfortable. Inform them about any past traumatic dental experiences you may have had, so they can modify their approach to suit your needs. Depending on the procedure you need, there may be sedation options available, which can help calm your nerves.

Be Proactive With Your Dental Health

By taking small steps to improve your oral health, you’ll reduce the need for intensive dental procedures. Brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and a sensible diet will help you maintain a healthy mouth. You should continue seeing your local dentist every six months for periodic exams and cleanings, as these reduce the need for more frequent dental appointments.

Don’t let dental anxiety hold you back — schedule an appointment at our Fort Lauderdale dental office today.

The best emergency dentist in Fort Lauderdale, hands down. I’ve been to a few others and none have compared to the care and attention I received here. The receptionist was so helpful and friendly. She went above and beyond to ensure I had a positive experience.

The location is convenient and there’s plenty of parking. It’s nice to not have to worry about finding a spot when you’re already dealing with a dental issue.
