Tips on How to Calm Your Nerves When Going to the Dentist

by
Do you feel relatively calm before your dental appointment, or are you a little nervous about a visit to the dental office? Do you find yourself worrying about it days or weeks before the appointment? Are you someone who is terrified about going to the dentist or about a procedure, and worries about it all the time? Do even those things that are supposed to make visits more comfortable just seem to increase the apprehension or feeling of anxiety and being out of control, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or local anesthesia (injections, needles, shots)? Whichever end of this spectrum you might be on, it may be helpful to know that you are not alone.
