“Are you ready to calm Dental Anxiety and Fear?” is the title of an article I recently wrote for the recent Psych Central website. The magazine features an online content-based newsletter that has an enormous number of articles, but which often do not contribute much to the readers’ well being. Here I would like to explain some of the difficulties associated with maintaining a regular practice of meditation and gradually improving one’s emotional well being.

One of the most obvious ways to calm Dental Anxiety and Fear is to learn more about the symptoms and causes of anxiety and how to treat them. This is a valuable process, but does not always bring about a reduction in anxiety. This is because many people will be a long way from being ready to handle their problems.

For example, the causes of Dental Anxiety and Fear may be so completely different for different people that it is difficult to isolate any one factor that will automatically reduce the level of worry and tension. It is also likely that each person will experience the same or similar symptoms, but each may have a completely different cause. For example, while depression is common in people suffering from dental anxiety, stress may have a similar effect on a person suffering from panic attacks.

To address the symptoms of Dental Anxiety and Fear, it is necessary to find a set of methods that can work for a vast variety of people. Meditating and relaxation techniques may relieve the pain associated with anxiety, but they are rarely effective for the cause of the problem. It is not unusual for people to report relief from anxiety, but only after the initial phase of relaxation has been accomplished.

The article “Are you ready to calm Dental Anxiety and Fear?” is intended to explain the cause of the problem, and the path to emotional recovery. The process requires determination and persistence, and it is not uncommon for a person to feel hopelessly lost and anxious for some time.

In order to gain a full understanding of the causes of Dental Anxiety and Fear, it is necessary to learn a variety of methods that can help the person to begin the process of emotional recovery. It is also important for the person to learn to accept that there is no single, easy, easy way to cure the cause of the problem.

By understanding the causes of Dental Anxiety and Fear, it is possible to look for methods that can help a person to overcome his or her condition. However, it is also important to note that no amount of effort is likely to change the fact that the cause of the problem is still there. This is true even if the causes of Dental Anxiety and Fear are completely understood.

The article “Are you ready to calm Dental Anxiety and Fear?” hopes to help the reader understand the facts about anxiety and how to control it. Eventually, it will be possible to choose the best method of treatment, but only after the patient has been shown how to manage his or her own stress.

What Your Dental Team Is Doing to Keep You Healthy

Dear Mayani Dental family:

The health and well-being of our patients is our top priority, now and always. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we are closely following and adhering to precautions advised by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

We want to assure you that we are taking continuous steps to ensure that our office remains a safe place for every patient. It’s important for you to know that dentists are experts in infection control. For instance, we have been trained to prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as flu, HIV, hepatitis, tuberculosis and all viral diseases. The precautions we take every day will also help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

We follow precautions developed by the CDC to protect both health care personnel and patients. We sterilize all instruments at 375°F after each use and clean each dental operatory after each patient visit, using surface disinfectants that kill all known infectious diseases, including coronavirus. We utilize dedicated hand wash and one-time use disposable materials which help maintain a safe environment for our patients. Our staff is regularly trained in these procedures.

Working with our facility managers, we’ve ensured that our cleaning team has a sufficient stock of supplies. We have asked them to apply additional focus and time on cleaning door handles, faucets, and other items with high-traffic hand touches. Magazines in our waiting areas are also a risk from frequent contact, so they have been removed.

Seeing your dentist is a vital investment for your general health. Our office remains open to care for our patients following the above guidelines. If you have a fever, are exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you may be a risk to other patients or staff members. If you are experiencing fever (greater than 100.4), cough, or shortness of breath, please remain at home and contact your primary care physician immediately. 

 

If you would like to reschedule an upcoming appointment or talk through any concerns, please feel free to contact either our offices at

For immediate attention or concerns please contact our manager at [email protected]

Remember, the best way to protect yourself and your community is with everyday preventative actions, like washing hands often and disinfecting surfaces regularly. These actions will help minimize and slow the spread of the coronavirus.
