Anxious about your upcoming dental surgery? You’re not alone. Most patients feel the same way from the mere mention of "surgery".
You can still have a positive experience during your surgery despite your worries. How?
Communicate with your dentist.
The first and most important part is to talk to your dentist. Don’t hesitate to let us know if any part of the procedure makes you nervous. We’ll address all your concerns and may be able to modify your treatment plan to help you feel more at ease.
Listen to something you love.
Listening to your favourite music, audiobook, or podcast can be really helpful to distract you from your worries.
Bring a support person.
Children usually have their parents beside them during a dental session to feel the comfort that someone they love or know is beside them during the anxiety-producing session. Adults are no different. Bringing a family member or friend can help you feel at ease during the appointment. Just let the practice know beforehand so we can make sure to accommodate an extra person.
Keep in mind the advancement of technology.
Modern dentistry which includes both equipment and materials, has made a great leap in technology, making treatment and procedures safer, more accurate, more comfortable, and less painful than ever before so remind yourself that it’s not going as bad as your anxiety thinks it will be.
We will take the steps necessary to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before, during and after your dental surgery. Call us today to book a stress-free appointment!
