At Lakewood Dental Trails, we offer a welcoming environment for our patients. We’ve gone out of our way to make everyone’s experience a positive one. We offer play areas, video games, comfortable seating, scented towels, televisions, and music. However, we know that you may be visiting us with past dental fears, and these amenities may not be of enough comfort to you. We don’t want your dental anxieties to inhibit you from getting the proper dental care you need and want.
If you’re avoiding making your dental appointment for you or a family member due to dental fears, it may be time to consider two things. The first step you might take toward helping calm your concerns is using a natural technique. Lavender essential oil has been used for thousands of years as a calming agent. You can apply the oil to the back of your neck, the bottom of your feet, or reflexive areas of your body before coming to the dentist.
You’ll be surprised at how it works to help ease your anxieties. It’s a natural solution, but if you’re not sure about it, try it sometime before you come to the dental office.
If the lavender oil does not offer you enough for calming purposes, it may be time to employ Lakewood Dental Trails’ sedation dentistry methods. We offer oral conscious pills or nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) to calm dental fears, so you can get the dental care you want and need.
