1. Listen to Music
Music can be soothing in its own way, but bringing headphones to your appointment can have other benefits as well. Many people are bothered by the sounds of dental care. Listening to music, you can block out the noise and focus on something else. A welcome distraction can make cleanings and other care easier for you.
