We understand that some people experience dental anxiety, which is a fear a visiting a dentist. There are many possible reasons a person may experience this fear, including:
- A sensitive gag reflex
- Disliking the sound of the drill
- A traumatizing childhood experience
- Proximity of the dental team
- Fear of not getting numb enough
If anxiety is preventing you from receiving the dental care that maintains your oral health, then we invite you to our office where we provide dental anxiety care.
There are many steps we can take to help you feel calm and comfortable during dental procedures. For one, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation that helps patients to feel relaxed. You can distract yourself by listening to music or watching a movie in our treatment area. You may also want to agree on a hand signal with our dentist if you need to take a short break during treatment.
