If you have a dental appointment coming up, then our dentist, Dr. Mark B. Martin, is happy to help you prepare for it. The more prepared you are, the better. In fact, you might even have a better dental experience! So, to be prepared for your appointment, he recommends doing the following things:

-Make sure to get a good night’s sleep the night before your appointment. Giving your brain the rest it needs helps reduce anxiety and helps you be in a better mood.

-Avoid consuming sugary and caffeinated products before your appointment. This is because sugar and caffeine can amp your heart rate, increase your energy level, and likely increase anxiety.

-Deeply clean your teeth and gums before your appointment. The cleaner your mouth is, the less time you can spend in the dental chair.

-Tell our dental team about any dental nerves or anxiety you have. If we know how you feel, we can take extra measures to make sure you have the best appointment possible.

Our dental team is more than happy to help you prepare so you can enjoy your time in the dental chair. We look forward to hearing from you!
