You Too Can Overcome Dental Anxiety!

Addressing Dental Anxiety

Perhaps there is no other healthcare profession like dentistry that has the unfortunate (and false) reputation of wanting to cause pain rather than to prevent it. For all the good that dentists do to improve our well being, there are many patients with fears about sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Perhaps it has something to do with not liking sharp metal objects put into your mouth or a distaste for fluoride, no matter how strongly the hygienist insist it is “cherry flavored.” Whatever the reason, there are many people ( young and old), who have dental anxiety.

Ways to Overcome Dental Anxiety

For your teeth’s sake, there are ways to combat dental anxiety, a condition sure to cause cavities. If positive reinforcement, learning to control fear and other behavior management techniques don’t do the trick, dental sedation could ease your mind and allow you to get your teeth cleaned.

Sedation occurs through inhalation (nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas) , & intravenously. These options are safe and can address most forms of dental anxiety by allowing you to get dental work done and simultaneously relieving the anxiety you feel inside. You can have a healthy smile without all of the worrying.
