These risks will impact your oral health and your overall health.  Dr. Neeraj Khanna and the team at Khanna Dentistry wants to help you get over your dental fear.

Overcoming Dental Fear

Believe it or not, dentists are trained to deal with patients who suffer from dental fear. Finding a highly trained and compassionate dentist may help alleviate some of the fear and anxiety you feel about visiting the dentist. Dr. Khanna will work with you to determine the best ways to make you more comfortable and less anxious about your dental visits. Talking to Dr. Khanna is the best way to help you overcome your dental fear. Here are some other ways to help:

  • Ask your dentist or your medical doctor for anti-anxiety medication before the actual procedure.
  • Wear headphones during the appointment to block out sounds and help you to relax.
  • Request a chair-side television to watch your favorite shows during the procedure; this will help reduce any stress.
  • Let a trusted family member or friend come with you to help you feel more comfortable during your dental visit.
  • Ask questions about anything you may need clarification on.
