Does Needle Size Matter?

 
Chapter: Four Tips to Relieve Anxiety

  • Avoid caffeine before a dental appointment.
  • Eat high-protein foods, which produce a calming effect, unlike sugary foods.
  • During the procedure, focus on breathing regularly and slowly. When you are nervous you tend to hold your breath, which decreases oxygen levels and further increases feelings of panic.
  • Talk to the dentist about specific fears and concerns. He or she can go a long way to dispel any negative or frightening images.
