You may be afraid of the dentist, and if so, you should know that you have a lot of company. Likewise, you should be aware, that you can learn to manage and even overcome your dental anxiety.

Here are three strategies that can help you or someone you love feel comfortable getting dental care in Hawthorne, CA.

1. Try Sedation

First and foremost, you need to be willing to sit in a dental chair. For many people, sedation is the only way to make that first appointment after years of avoiding professional cleanings and exams. Sedation helps by providing peace of mind, preventing pain, and stopping you from gagging.

2. Find a Distraction

Sometimes the best way to get through a dental appointment is to focus your attention elsewhere while our professionals care for your smile. You can do this by listening to music or a podcast or watching one of your favorite television shows.

3. Get to Know Us

Our team wants you to have the best experience possible along with outstanding dental care. It’s why we have assembled a group of compassionate individuals and invested in patient-friendly technology, such as our Solea laser and our drill-free fillings.

By letting us work with you, you can start to feel comfortable getting the treatment you need to keep your smile looking great. Call Hawthorne Smile Spa at 310-982-4895 or schedule online for an appointment.
