If you, or a loved one, suffers from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Here at David E. Pearson DMD PC in Lawrenceville, Georgia, we want you to feel safe and confident in our care, which is why we offer these tips and tricks to help you in the dental chair.

Dental anxiety is a real anxiety condition that gives people fear or anxiety when it comes to visiting your dentist. The excellent news is there are things you can do to overcome your dental anxiety. The first thing you should remember to do is to tell the office about your feelings. Dr. David E. Pearson cares for your comfort and wants you to have a positive experience and feel safe in his care.

Another tip or trick you can do to manage your dental anxiety is to distract yourself as you are in the dental chair. By wearing headphones or playing with stress balls in your hands, you can distract yourself from the situation and what is happening. You can also imagine yourself in a wonderful place that makes you happy like a peaceful beach or stunning garden.

When it comes to overcoming your dental anxiety, remember to count your breaths and take it slow. Try working out an arrangement of a signal for your dentist to stop if you are feeling too stressed or uncomfortable. These methods can definitely help you relax during your dental care.
