Fear of the dentist generally begins in childhood when a traumatic experience occurred in a dental office. Without proper explanation and understanding of what will happen in a dental chair, children can end up totally traumatized.
If you were traumatized by dental work as a child, your dental fears do not have to continue. All Smiles Care in Westminster, MD has some suggestions and sedation dentistry to take the pain and fear right out of your dental visit.
Ways to lessen dental fears
We all have to go to the dentist at some point unless we are one of the fortunate few who have perfect teeth. Here are some ways you can make your trip easier:
- Listening to music while you are in the dental chair can take your mind off of what is happening while you are there.
- Drink plenty of water beginning a few days before you go for your appointment. Most people are dehydrated on some level, and when we hydrate our bodies with water, our nerves do not scream at us when we experience the tiniest amount of discomfort.
- Meditation prior to a dental visit can also help calm any stress you experience.
Here is what we have to off you:
- Nucalm®Dental Sedation is a revolutionary drug-free system of calming the stress sometimes associated with dental visits. With it, your body gets into a pre-sleep state that equates with a deep state of calmness. It takes about 3 minutes to achieve a deeply relaxed state that allows you to experience the dental visit as it is, almost totally pain free, and not the horror of your childhood. Our clinic in Westminster, MD offers dental sedation as part of its revolutionary dental care.
Our Westminster, MD clinic’s use of Nucalm is easy to follow! The first step is the application of NuCalm® topical cream or chewing dietary supplements that counteract the adrenaline that arises with stress. Next, small patches will be applied behind each ear to deliver mild stimulation to that area to facilitate your relaxation Then, noise-dampening headphones deliver sounds to keep your brain relaxed. Finally, a light-blocking eye mask allows you to ignore visual stimuli.
