Teeth Chattering at the Dentist?

What to do about dental anxiety
If you're among the millions of people who get nervous when going to the dentist, here are some tips on how you can overcome dental anxiety.

The American Dental Association recommends that you share your anxiety with your dentist and the staff. Knowing about your feelings will help the dentist adapt treatment to your needs.
Another way to reduce anxiety is to schedule your dental visit when you're less likely to be rushed or under pressure. For example, book an appointment for early in the morning or on a Saturday.

Bring along a portable audio player and headset. Listening to your favorite music can help soothe you, as well as drown out the sound of the dental drill. You might also try visualizing yourself in a pleasant setting, such as relaxing on a warm beach.
