We frequently hear from patients that they experience nervousness before visiting our office for a dental treatment or hygiene examination and cleaning. We understand that patients have these feelings, and we can offer assistance to any patient to help them overcome their anxieties and fears. Our concern is when nerves keep patients from visiting our office for routine appointments and recommended treatments. Delaying dental care can lead to dental emergencies, additional treatments, and even tooth loss. We want to offer some tips that can help you relax before your treatment and help you be more comfortable during your appointment.
