Ask patients to identify a place where they can easily notice their breath.
Encourage them to follow their breath or count breaths up to 10, providing a focal point for relaxation.
This method of creating a focal point is a calming tool for the patient.
Integrating this technique into your practice can significantly enhance the patient’s comfort, making dental appointments a more positive and less stressful experience.
