Relax — Your mouth is in good hands.

At Byronwood Dental Office, we understand that some patients may feel uncomfortable seeing the dentist. However, please rest assured that we will do everything we can to make sure that your visit is a positive and comfortable experience. Modern dental methods and technologies have come a long way and many procedures can now be safely performed with minimal discomfort. If you’re still feeling a bit nervous or anxious about your appointment, here are a few tips to help you relax:
 
  • Give yourself plenty of time for your appointment. This includes before, during, and afterward so that you’re not rushing from place to place.
  • Avoid consuming caffeine prior to your appointment. While caffeine is great for giving you that extra jolt of energy, it also can make you more anxious and fidgety, which can add to your stress.
  • Bring your earphones and favorite calming music to help distract you from the noise of the dental office.
  • Try deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation or other relaxation methods taught in yoga.

For a completely relaxing dental experience, ask us about Nitrous Oxide –something you may have heard referred to as “laughing gas.” Simply have a seat, breathe in the gas and look forward to being completely relaxed before and during your dental procedure. Don’t be afraid to discuss your fears or anxieties with us. Our dental team is here to help you have a positive dental experience, and we welcome talking to you about your individual situation in order to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

The Inside Story

A large part of a dental patient’s psychological comfort lies in his or her level of comprehension about their current dental condition – understanding exactly what their problem is, and how and why it should be resolved. To get the most information about your dental condition, we invested in an intra-oral camera that allows you to see –REALLY see – what’s going on in your mouth.
The intra-oral camera allows you to see what we are looking at, so that when we point out areas of concern you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about and be able to ask any questions. Please ask for the “inside story” on our intra-oral camera next time you’re in the office!
