Dental anxiety affects many patients. An overwhelming fear of dentists or dental treatment can stem from negative experiences with dental procedures in the past. Other patients have a sensitive gag reflex that always makes dental work dreadful. Whatever the cause, Dr. Cynthia Wong does not want patients to delay treatment because of anxiety. Over the years, her technique and gentle touch have helped many anxious patients feel as comfortable as possible.
The best way to ease any dental anxiety is to explain and discuss your fears with your doctor. Once your dentist understands what your fears are, you are both better prepared to determine the best way to make you less anxious and more relaxed. It is also important to ask your dentist explain every stage of a procedure or appointment. This way you can mentally prepare for what’s to come.
