What is Dental Anxiety?


Dental anxiety is a condition that can affect adults and children. It may begin in childhood or in our later years and is often connected to a past negative dental experience. Children may suffer from dental anxiety because they had a cavity or pain that led to their first dental visit. An experience like this can cause the child to associate pain with the dentist, and so all future visits including dental exams become a source of stress.

Adults may suffer dental anxiety if a dental problem is left untreated, which can lead to spreading of infection and more pain. However, if you have pain in your gums or teeth, our compassionate dentists at Melbourne North West can help with medications to remove infection to help ease the pain. We also provide anesthesia to numb pain during treatments like dental fillings and tooth extractions. Our goal is to help you feel as comfortable as possible, while we provide a positive dental experience.

Deep Breathing

Taking a few deep breaths anytime you feel stress building is a great way to help quickly calm yourself. When you feel anxious about the dentist, stop and breathe deep. Feel the stress leave with each exhale as you feel your body relax. This age-old technique works because physically, stress causes us to breathe shallow, which leads to feeling more stressed. Deep breathing reverses this effect and can help you feel more in control.

Muscle Relaxation

Systematically relaxing your muscles by each muscle group, as you focus on slow and steady breathing can alleviate feelings of stress held in your muscles. Begin by relaxing the muscles of your face and head and work your way down your body by relaxing your shoulders, torso, legs and feet. You can also work from your feet up to your head. Either way, it is possible to train yourself to enjoy full physical relaxation as your body learns to let go of the physical symptoms of stress.

Meditation

Practice meditation in the quiet of your own home by sitting quietly and focus only on counting your breaths from one to four, repeatedly. If your mind wanders, bring it back to counting and keep going. The more you practice, the easier it is to do as you learn to control your mind and calm it down during times of stress.

Hypnosis

Hypnosis for stress is a common practice for those with extreme anxieties and it may work for dental anxiety, as well. It can be done with a professional and may require more than one visit for full effects.
