NERVOUS ABOUT VISITING THE DENTIST?

If you feel nervous, uncomfortable or are afraid of seeing a dentist, you are not alone! Studies show that more than 40% of the population experiences some form of dental anxiety or extreme dental fear. Sound of a dental drill can send shivers down their spine. Dental fears are often specific to needles or drills. Some people may feel embarrassed about being "cowards". Dental anxiety is simply general unease at seeing a dentist.

 

Dental anxiety and fears exist for good reasons - feeling of vulnerability of mouth, loss of control, previous traumatic experiences and learning through experiences of parents and others many years ago.

 

Thanks to amazing recent advances made in dentistry, pain has been reduced to minor pinches and discomfort. Sedation options offer anxious patients a safe means of receiving the needed dental treatment, and does not involve the use of needles. Using a variety of techniques, we help you relax before and during the dental procedures.

Therefore, it makes no sense to let the old, unjustified fears or embarrassment stop you from availing the dental care that can significantly improve your oral health, overall health and quality of life. There is no need to postpone the dental exams and treatment you need, and continue to suffer.
