At Oral Surgery of Tidewater, Dr. Melvin L. Ford III, Dr. Klaus D. Guter, and Dr. James A. Gray and our team understand that the oral surgery office can be a nerve-wracking place, especially if you’ve had negative experiences in the past. This oftentimes creates dental anxiety, which makes your appointments even scarier. Well, our team wants you to have the best dental experience at our office, and we are happy to help you make that happen. We have some tips that might be beneficial for you!

First, bring some comfort items to the appointment. This can be music, a blanket, a pillow—anything that might make you feel better in the chair. Feel free to listen to your music and focus more on the words than on the treatment. And feel free to grasp the warmth of your blanket and pillow.

Second, find out more about the details about your treatment. Our dental team will be happy to explain the steps of your treatment so you can know exactly what to expect. This will help you solve any mysteries you aren’t quite sure about. It can also help you relieve some stress.

Third, talk to our team about the possibility of using a dental sedative during your appointment. Sedation dentistry can help you feel calm, relaxed, and comfortable in the hands of the dentist. This can wash your nerves, anxiety, and worries away. In fact, you might not even remember what happens at the office!
