Use These Tips to Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist
If you have a fear of the dentist, a routine cleaning can become a major source of stress and anxiety. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways that you can work to overcome your dental fears.

Talk to Your Dentist
If you are fearful about your dental procedure, tell us during your appointment. This will help us decide the best approach for your appointment, and you'll feel more in control of your exam when everyone is on the same page.

Learn about the Procedure
Knowledge is power, so knowing exactly what will happen during your dental procedure can leave you feeling more comfortable. It is your right to understand the work that is going to be done on your teeth.

Ask about Sedation Dentistry
Many dentists recommend the use of laughing gas and other sedation methods for nervous patients. Contact us about potential options that could help you feel more comfortable about your appointment.

Work on Your Breathing
Practicing yoga and meditation outside of the dental office can assist you with your dental appointments. Breathing techniques can help you to relax when you are sitting in the dental chair.

Prioritize Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is a helpful way to prevent major dental problems that may involve more time spent in a dental chair. The more often that you go in for regular cleanings, the less likely it is that you will experience a greater dental problem that requires extensive treatment.

If you are living with dental anxiety, contact our office today for more tips on how to deal with your fears.

How to Boost Your Saliva Production
If you are suffering from dry mouth, you may be interested in ways that you can boost your saliva production to keep your teeth safe and breath fresh. Try following a few of these steps:

• Chew on sugar-free gum. This can stimulate your salivary glands.
• Eat foods that are high in fiber, such as crunchy fruits and vegetables.
• Limit your alcohol consumption, as alcohol will dry out the mouth.
• Brush your teeth, floss regularly, and use mouthwash. However, be sure to choose mouthwashes that are alcohol-free if you are concerned about saliva production.

If you need additional tips on how to improve your saliva production, contact our office.

Three Ways to Protect Your Enamel
The enamel is an important part of your teeth, so it is important to take steps to protect it. Consider employing some of the following strategies:

Brush gently. Brushing too aggressively can cause the enamel to wear down, so use gentle strokes and soft-bristled brush.
Reduce your sugar intake. Sugar is bad news when it comes to the teeth, as it will produce acid that will cause the enamel to soften and eventually wear away.
Avoid dry mouth. Saliva is crucial for keeping your mouth healthy, so make sure that your mouth is well lubricated in order to protect your teeth.

If you are concerned about the health of your enamel, contact your dentist to set up an appointment.
