Do you know how to ease your feelings of dental anxiety? Did you know there are things you can do to help feel calm while in the dental chair? Yes, it’s true! Dental anxiety can be maintained, which is why our dentists, Drs. Cleveland, Allmand, and Carlson with Monon Family Dental in Indianapolis, Indiana, are here to help you learn how to manage it.

Many people have dental anxiety, which is a feeling that makes people feel afraid to get the oral health care they need. As a result, dental anxiety could be damaging to the oral health, delaying visits as much as possible, which leads to painful and costly effects without treatments that otherwise that could have been avoided.

Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to help with your dental anxiety concerns. You can begin by talking to your dental team about your anxiety. Never feel embarrassed or shy about your condition because thousands of people feel nervous too. So, by telling someone, you are helping the dental team make you feel safer and more comfortable during treatment. Other methods to treat anxiety include listening to music or using a stress-relieving tool like a ball in your hand during treatment.

The most significant thing to remember is our dental team will do everything we can to help you while you are in our care. We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry for our patients needing help managing their anxiety while chairside. So if you live in the Zionsville, Carmel, Fishers, or Noblesville, Indiana, areas, we invite you to call us today at 317-810-9285 to set up an appointment. Our team is happy to take your call.
