Also, since it's not physiologically possible to be both anxious and relaxed at the same time, Richard Kneip, PhD, clinical psychologist in private practice in Clarkston, Michigan and director of Great Lakes Psychology Group, recommends that you try calming your body (and thus your mind) with progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) by contracting and releasing each muscle in the body one at a time.

Deep breathing (breathing in and out for six counts each) will help calm you down in the moment, but for a longer-term fix, Dr. Kneip recommends systematic desensitization, which gradually exposes you to anxiety-provoking situations. "Research has shown that individuals prone to this anxiety can learn to overcome it by pairing relaxation techniques with imagining themselves, or better yet, observing others in scenes from TV shows or movies, in increasingly confined spaces. The key is to progress in small steps, advises Dr. Kneip, who says that it is generally best to start with the least anxiety-provoking images, objects or situations and gradually increase the intensity as you are able to successfully manage each along the way.
Dr. Kneip says that you can reduce your sense of vulnerability by confronting these fears with rational rebuttals.
Once you're no longer anxious about this step, advises Dr. Kneip, repeat the process while "imagining yourself sitting in the dentist's chair, and then the dentist inserting dental instruments into the mouth, etc." He says this approach is highly successful because it uses baby steps that don't overwhelm people struggling with anxiety.
