A little about Dental Anxiety:
Dental anxiety is common and does not discriminate between old or young, male or female. It doesn’t really matter if you are a teacher, a janitor, a lawyer or a nuclear physicist, most anyone can be affected by dental anxiety and as a result, neglect teeth and gums, threatening not only oral but overall good health.
For the most part, dental anxiety is the fear of the unknown and often stems from unpleasant past experiences. The great news is that it is treatable.
The InHarmony Dental Care Team all firmly believe that when dealing with dental anxiety, the whole person must be considered. That is why each person who experiences dental anxiety is met at an initial appointment in a comfortable environment so that a comprehensive plan can be put into action.
The plan for conquering fear is made specifically for each person and may include:
- Relaxed breathing techniques
- Problem Solving
- Explanation and clarification of procedures
- Guided Imagery
- Medically supervised pre-treatment with anti-anxiety medication
- Pre-habilitation or step-by-step practice of various dental situations
- Distraction with music, television, or other media
- Pet therapy
