What Is Dental Anxiety?

Dental anxiety is worry, fear, or stress associated with dentists or a dental setting. People of all ages can experience dental anxiety, whether it be due to a traumatic past experience, having generalized anxiety, or not being entirely comfortable during your visit.

How Can I Overcome Dental Anxiety?

Patients that avoid routine treatments and dental visits due to dental anxiety or nerves increase their risk of dental disease. We recommend seeking out coping mechanisms to help ease your fear of the dentist so you can get the oral healthcare you need! For example:

  • Notify your dental team so they can make reasonable accommodations
  • Practice deep breathing & meditation exercises
  • Bring a friend, family member, security object, and/or earbuds with music to your appointment
  • Take care of your physical needs beforehand (wear comfortable clothing, go to the bathroom, make sure you aren’t hungry, etc.)
  • Talk out your worries with a professional counselor

At Jonesboro Dental Care, we offer relaxing nitrous oxide to help you feel calm and relaxed. Nitrous oxide is administered via a comfortable nose mask and has no lingering side effects once the mask is removed. Our office also provides many amenities, including complimentary refreshments, cozy pillows and blankets, and a prize box for kids!
