Baton Rouge Dentist Helps Patients Conquer Dental Phobias

grandfamilydentistryOur family dentist Baton Rouge specializes in patients who experience dental phobia. For some people, a dental appointment is a terrifying experience. It may be the sound of the drill or the sound of the sharp tools scraping the teeth. For whatever the reason, it is real to someone who has a dental phobia. It may be the result of a previous traumatic experience at a dentist office or simply a preconceived notion that it will be a painful experience.

Dr. Grand is very reassuring and recommends practicing prevention by being super vigilant in the care of their teeth so that is not necessary to come to the dentist as often. Some people have a fear of the dental equipment. This dentist often explains the use of the dental tools to patients so that the tools do not seem so strange. The loud noises of the drill are lessened by noise canceling headphones. Some people even opt to listen to their iPod.

For those individuals who regularly breathe through their mouth, they may feel uncomfortable breathing through their nose. This may create a feeling of suffocation as the dentist works on your mouth. Breathing strips may be helpful to overcome this condition. Also nitrous oxide is often administered to help patients breathe better and relax.
