Dental anxiety can strike at any age. You don’t have to feel ashamed. If this is something you experience, we encourage you to tell our team at Family Dental Care all about it. If you inform us of your struggle, we can prepare for your visit, making sure you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Here are some tips that might help you at the dental office:

– If you are feeling intense anxiety, just breathe slowly and deeply to relieve stress and lower your dental anxiety.
– Hold an item like a stress ball or a fidget spinner to help you overcome dental anxiety.
– You may feel too embarrassed to speak up if you still feel discomfort after an anesthetic, but it is important that you do so. Anesthetics work on different levels for each person. If you let us know, you can get the correct dose.
– Listening to calming music or an audio book can help you during your dental procedures, as some people experience dental anxiety based on the noises at the office.

To let us know about your struggles and to schedule an appointment with our dentists in Bowling Green, Kentucky, call Family Dental Care at 270.282.0909 and a member of our team will gladly help you. Dr. Brenda, Dr. Gary, Dr. Andy, and our team are here to support you.
