“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” ~ C.S. Lewis
Have you ever kicked your dentist in the face (intentionally or unintentionally?) Do you feel like you get a little shaky before your dental visits? Or feel like you are always jumpy in the dental chair? This post, a component of our Anti-Anxiety Dental Series, explains what is happening with your body.
Different types of anxiety
- Chair gripping
- Quick talking
- Lack of communication
- Feeling cold or overheated
- Chest Pains
- Hitting dentist/assistant
Not all anxiety is the same
The unique thing about dental anxiety is that everyone has very specific ways it can hijack their minds and bodies. In almost every situation though, it feels as though something is overcoming them with little or no control over it.
Is there hope?
Dental anxiety itself can seem like a large mountain to overcome, luckily I have years of experience in working with patient that have all forms of dental anxiety. In my professional opinion, there is not only hope, but using the right strategy, any procedure can be accomplished with ease and with limited or no medication.
