Ease Your Fears of the Dentist

Dr. Tiffany Shields is aware that trips to the dentist aren’t always at the top of everyone’s to-do list. Here are a few tips that might help you relax before your next dental appointment:

  • Share your specific fears with your dentist and they will be able to help manage them better.
  • Remember that procedures have improved and modern dentistry methods can lead to less discomfort during your office visit.
  • Utilize sedation dentistry. Dr. Shields is proud to offer sedation dentistry, which eases anxiety throughout procedures through a safe class of drugs.
  • Tell your dentist to stop if you begin to feel uncomfortable. Agree on a signal before they begin working.
  • Visit your dentist regularly to avoid needing more work done on your next visit. Regular visits will allow for problem prevention.
