Letting go of your dental anxiety

Letting go of your dental anxiety

Dental Anxiety

Do you have dental anxiety?  You are not alone!  At TKDDS, it is our goal to provide the most relaxing and enjoyable dental experience possible.

At TKDDS we offer the following dental anxiety relief options:

  • Celenite wands: celenite helps to clear the aura/energy field. Our celenite wands have ground quartz crystals and essential oils which have additional calming and grounding effects.
  • Weighted blankets: signal the autonomic nervous system to go into “rest and digest mode.”  The weighted blanket helps to stimulate the production of serotonin and endorphins which have calming and relaxing benefits.
  • Rescue Remedy Flower Essence: transmits the energy or the vibrational nature of the flowers to you. This positive energy helps to heal past trauma and negativity, thereby reducing anxiety and stress
  • Pillows/Blankets: comfort can often times calm and reduce anxiety and stress
  • Nitrous Oxide: inhaled through nose mask- creates a feeling of relaxation and reduction in anxiety levels for most people.
  • Intentional Clinic Space Design: Incorporating the principles of Feng Shui and Vastu, our dental clinic has a welcoming and calming effect which aids in reducing anxiety while promoting healing and long-lasting wellness.
  • A compassionate and caring dental team: the TKDDS team will help you feel safe and calm.  We slow down and do everything we are able to establish trust and positive dental experiences.

Prior to your appointment in our office, you may also consider the following:   

  • Acupuncture/Acupressure: can work wonders in relieving stress and anxiety
  • Chamomile Tea: contains Apigenin and Luteolin that aid in relaxation
  • 1-3 grams of Omega-3s: can lower the stress chemicals in the body
  • Lavender Oil: a few drops in a cup of boiling water can be inhaled or applied directly to your skin promoting relaxation
  • L-lysine: building blocks to the brains neurotransmitters which can help reduce anxiety
  • Sunshine for some Vitamin D!
  • No caffeine before your dental appointment, it can contribute to anxiety and shaking
