Overcome Your Dental Fear

Relieved Dental PatientWe’d like to offer one comforting and wonderful fact about today’s dentistry: it’s comfortable, even pleasant. Technology, new procedures, and some very sophisticated approaches to anesthesia have all contributed to painless treatment, from cleaning to cavity preparations to root canal therapy.

But what if you didn’t grow up with modern dentistry, and remember it differently? If you’ve had difficult dental experiences, you may be among the 150 million Americans who suffer through treatment, or avoid the dentist altogether. The fact is, about 80% of the fearful can overcome this kind of anxiety—with a little help from an empathetic dentist.

Every one of our dental team understands dental fear and where it comes from. We’re trained in forming good working relationships with fearful patients. We encourage you to voice your anxiety and discuss your problems with us. We’ll listen to your concerns, and agree on small things that help you maintain a sense of control—a hand signal works with some patients. But talking about fear with us—being assertive and letting us know what bothers you—is the first step.

If you—or someone you know—has been putting off needed dental care because of fear, have them give us a call.

Tell them to let us know they’ve had some bad dental experiences they just don’t want to relive.

We can help.
