At Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry we make it our business not only to provide patients with the expert restorative, cosmetic, and general dental care they need, but to help them feel comfortable in the process. Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how little pain they experience (if any) receiving cosmetic dental treatments like crowns, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and smile makeovers by Dr. Dennis J. Wells and Dr. Daniel K. Weese.
Many times, the nerves pick up before treatment has even started. If you find yourself anxious about an upcoming dental appointment, whether it be as simple as a cleaning or as complex as a full smile redesign, try this strategy: go to your happy place.
It may be a hammock on the beach at sunset. It may be lying in your comfortable bed with a good book. Maybe your happy place is up on a tall mountain, looking out at a beautiful view after a great hike. Try closing your eyes and picturing yourself there.
This mental strategy can help Nashville and Brentwood dental patients remain calm and remember that the treatment they are receiving—whether it’s dental implants to restore a missing tooth, teeth whitening to brighten up your smile, or a thorough cleaning to keep up on oral hygiene—will lead to better oral health and a happier you.
Of course, you don’t have to do it alone. If you struggle with dental anxiety, Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry offers several options for sedation and relaxation to help ease those nerves and diminish pain. Sedation can be especially helpful for procedures that may mean sitting in the dentist chair for a while, like a smile makeover. Ask Dr. Dennis Wells or Dr. Daniel Weese about the different sedation and relaxation options we provide for our valued patients.
You don’t need to be nervous or afraid. We want all of our Tennessee dental patients to have a positive experience, so please ask us about sedation and comfort options, relaxation techniques, and strategies to help you remain calm and enjoy your time with us.
