The Best Approach to Overcoming Dental Anxiety is Telling Us So We Can Help

Posted on 5/15/2019 by Sandra Embree
The Best Approach to Overcoming Dental Anxiety is Telling Us So We Can HelpMany people suffer from dental anxiety, and it is no reason to be embarrassed. We know how common dental anxiety is, and if you are dealing with any of this fear, we want to help you feel more comfortable. The best thing you can do to overcome your dental anxiety is to tell us about it so that we can help.

Express Your Concerns
If you are worried about an upcoming dental procedure or appointment, please let us know. We have experience working with people with all levels of dental anxiety, and our goal is to make the experience as comfortable as possible. We can make recommendations about how to ease your dental anxiety, including bringing a support person with you or listening to music.

Ask Questions
We want you to feel comfortable with your dental treatment. In many cases, this means letting us answer your questions, but if you don't ask, we won't know that you have them. Asking questions is a good way to dispel some of your dental fear and anxiety, as you'll feel more informed and in control.

Consider Sedation Dentistry

In some cases of severe anxiety, sedation dentistry options are recommended to ease your discomfort during your dental appointment. Oral sedation is available, but you will typically need a support person to drive you home after the appointment. For major procedures, IV moderate sedation or general anesthesia may be recommended.

When you are relaxed and at ease during your dental appointment, the process will go much smoother for everyone involved. That's why we want to know about any dental anxiety or fears that you might experience. We are here to help, so please call us to discuss your apprehension further.
