I have a terrible fear of the dentist. What can I do?
If you experience dental fears or feel anxiety leading up to your dental appointments, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is actually quite common. Some people remember a negative experience in the past while others have no explanation for the way they feel. Either way. we can help.
Our team is specially trained to take care of you. We can tailor your dental care to be just right for you. We have many options that can make dental appointments much easier than they used to be, including sedation options, new numbing techniques, and more. If you want to come in just to talk for the first visit, we can always do that, too.
We encourage our patients to let us know if they experience anxiety at the dentist. This way, we can tailor your treatment and make the experience right for you. While it can be tempting to skip dental appointments, especially if you have not had any problems, doing so can allow more serious dental conditions to develop and create dental emergencies. If you maintain regular dental appointments, we can focus on keeping you healthy and comfortable.
