5 Tips for a More Enjoyable Dental Visit

Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience, which is why we strive to provide our patients with top notch Eugene dental care in a warm, relaxing atmosphere at Feldmanis Family Dentistry. Are you wondering how you can make your next dental visit more comfortable and less stressful? The following are some tips on what you can do, as well as how we can help you relax while you’re visiting our office.

Choose the right time. Schedule your dental appointment for a day that works best for you, preferably when you don’t already have a lot going on. Even better if you can also make your appointment day a self-care day, with a fun or relaxing activity planned afterwards. This way you can walk through the door already in a calmer state of mind, which will help your visit go more smoothly.

Bring support. It’s okay to bring along a trusted friend or family member, especially if you are anxious about the experience. They can help put your mind at ease, hold your hand and/or help you talk about any concerns or questions that you may be nervous about voicing.

Be comfortable. At Feldmanis, we have a variety of ways to help you feel more comfortable during your visit, from fleece blankets you can snuggle up with to warm neck wraps that relax your shoulders and decrease tension. We can also offer nitrous oxide, a medication that allows patients to remain fully awake for procedures while providing increased comfort and a reduction in dental anxiety.

Distract yourself. Ease your stress by distracting yourself during your appointment. While you probably won’t be able to play games on your phone, you can bring an audiobook or soothing music to listen to while you’re here.

Do communicate with us. This is one of the best ways you can help make your visit to our Eugene family dentistry more comfortable. We want to hear your questions, concerns, expectations and needs prior to (and throughout) your visit. If you’re worried about forgetting anything during your appointment, spend a few minutes beforehand compiling a list of your questions and concerns. Making your visit as stress-free and enjoyable as possible is incredibly important to us. We’re here for you!
