Our Options to Relieve Your Dental Anxiety

Feeling nervousness or anxiety at the dentist’s office is a very common problem. Many of our new patients have these feelings because of bad experiences in their past, but our personalized care and comfort options can help you manage your anxiety and get the dental treatments that you need.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, we will work with you to come up with a solution that works and helps you feel more at ease in our office. In our experience, we’ve learned that each person and their anxiety is different, so we will be flexible and come up with a personalized plan that is effective for you.

How We Help Relieve Dental Anxiety

With our small, cozy office, we’ve always found a way to provide personalized care to every patient, and we’ve found that this helps patients feel more comfortable and less anxious during treatment. In addition, we can schedule longer appointments to help you manage dental anxiety.

During a longer appointment, we can move more slowly through the procedure, explain each step before we perform it, and give you time to take breaks if you start to feel nervous. We’ve found that a slow and deliberate approach helps our patients feel more calm and in control, and this has helped many of them overcome any anxiety they might have had.

For other patients, we also have dental sedation options available that will relax you, so that you can undergo the procedure in total comfort. We offer both oral sedatives (Xanax) as well as complimentary nitrous oxide. Both of these solutions are completely safe and will help you manage any nervousness you’re feeling.
