Holistic Dentistry Fort Lauderdale FL – Find Your Own Holistic Dentist
Are you looking for anxiety free, holistic dentistry in the Fort Lauderdale area? You’re in the right place. If you’ve had trouble finding your own holistic dentist that can allow you to take back control of your oral health, the team at Advanced Dental Wellness Center can help.
Dental anxiety is something that many people must learn to cope with in order to keep their mouth healthy. The good news is that with a little extra care, we can make dentistry relaxed and virtually painless. Even armed with this information, many patients still maintain hesitation or apprehension over visiting the dentist. These patients can find a solution with the help of holistic dentistry. Our goal is to take care of patients’ oral health and wellbeing, which is why we work with our patients to deliver stress-free dental care.
While dental anxiety is common, we don’t know which patients are experiencing it. It’s important for our patients to let us know if they are feeling anxious. Once we understand that a phobia is present, we can take steps necessary to address it.
One way we combat anxiety is through open communication. One of the biggest contributors to dental anxiety is fear of the unknown. We will spend quality time with patients explaining procedures, answering questions, and setting up expectations so they know how long the procedure will take, what we will be doing, and what types of medication and anesthesia are available. In many cases, this is enough to ease a patients’ fear.
Relaxation is another way to cope with dental anxiety. Stress makes the body exhibit physical symptoms such as fast breathing, increased heart rate and tightening of the muscles. Relaxation techniques such as deep breaths, focusing on peaceful images, and relaxing the muscles can help.
We also offer NuCalm drug free relaxation which uses four components that are proven to relax the body. The entire process takes about 3-5 minutes and includes:
- NuCalm topical cream or dietary supplement
- Microcurrent stimulation
- Noise dampening headphones
- Light blocking eye mask
