5. Share Your Fears/Anxiety With Your Dentist
You might feel embarrassed about your anxiety or fear but your dentist will want to know about them. Sometimes saying your fear out loud will help you overcome it. Saying it out loud and making your dentist aware will help them help you overcome them.
When you let Dr. Fornalczyk know that you have a fear of the dentist or suffer from dental anxiety, he will take it seriously. After listening to your concerns, he will explain to you everything you need to know about your procedure and offer solutions to help you feel more relaxed. For instance, he will check in with you every few minutes during your appointment to ask if you need a break.
We want to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing dental appointment. Please let us know if you have anxiety and if there is anything we can do to make you feel more comfortable. If you don’t speak up, we won’t know how to help you.
