Posted .

Are you afraid of going to the dentist? You’re not alone. Thousands of people suffer from some kind of dental anxiety. Unfortunately, sometimes this anxiety can prevent you from getting the kind of oral health care that you might need the most. That’s why our dental team here would like to give you some basic information about how to have an enjoyable, low-stress dental appointment at Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS

The very first thing to do if you suffer from dental anxiety is to make sure you tell our friendly and understanding staff at Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS when you call to make your appointment. Dr. Nicholas A. Jamison II and the entire team want you to feel safe in our care, so please ask us any questions and tell us any details that you think will help us address the situation properly.

Secondly, when you come to our office, come prepared with some healthy and convenient distraction strategies. Have an audiobook available or some relaxing music, or even listen to your favorite movie.

If any experience you have in the dental chair triggers heightened or intense anxiety, please let us know and we will stop and give you some time to breathe. You’ll want to take slow breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth, and feel free to close your eyes.
