Do you get a nervous twinge when you think about going to the dentist? There are some easy ways to overcome the anxiety that might be keeping you from maintaining proper dental health.

Regular visits to your dentist can help you prevent dental diseases and catch any problems at an early, easily treatable stage. The wonderful side benefits of early detection are that the treatment is less time-consuming and usually much less expensive than if the problem were allowed to develop into a major difficulty.

So how do you get over your nervousness? At Michael R. Errico DDS, FAGD, FICOI, PC & Associates, we encourage our patients to let us know if they have any fears or anxiety about exams or other dental procedures. Discussing your feelings with us gives us a chance to explain the procedures to give you a better understanding of what to expect and help alleviate your anxiety.

You can also try wearing headphones to listen to relaxing music or your favorite audiobook. Other relaxation techniques include deep breathing as well as concentrating on relaxing your muscles one body part at a time. Visiting Dr. Errico and staff at least twice a year helps us develop a great relationship with you so you can relax knowing that we genuinely care about you and your dental health.
