Many people find relaxation in listening to music during treatment. Wearing headphones can make many people feel more calm and relaxed while sitting in the dental chair. Another tip is to work out a signal system with your dentists. Raise your hand or tap the seat if you feel you need a pause while you are being worked on. This will help your dentists know your feelings while helping you feel in control of the situation to help keep you relaxed.
