If your next dental appointment is quickly approaching, then it’s time to start preparing for it! If you prepare for your visit, there is a good chance you can have a better and even more positive experience. So, to help you prepare, our dentist, Dr. Mauricio Martinez, has some tips for you. Those tips are:

-Get plenty of rest the night before your appointment. Letting your brain rest helps improve your mood and reduce your anxiety.

-Avoid eating or drinking sugary or caffeinated foods or drinks before your appointment. This is recommended because sugar and caffeine increase your energy and anxiety, which can make your heart race during your appointment.

-Deeply clean your smile before you come into our office. (Typically, you should be deeply cleaning your smile everyday anyway). Attending your appointment with clean teeth and gums can help reduce your time in the dental chair.

-If you have dental anxiety and nerves, tell our dental team. The more we know, the more we can do to help you feel calm and comfortable in the dental chair.
