Dental anxiety is very common. If you have a fear of dental work, we want you to know that making you feel comfortable and safe at our office is our first priority.
Dental Anxiety and Dental Phobia
Dental anxieties and phobias present themselves in a variety of ways, and specific fears vary from person to person. Dental anxiety may be mild to moderate, and is often a general sense of worry and apprehension when thinking about an upcoming procedure. Dental phobia is a more intense experience, with patients feeling an overwhelming, irrational fear of dental work. This can sometimes cause them to avoid care all together.
Ace Dental Can Help
Whatever your individual level of anxiety may be, our office is dedicated to making sure that your visit is comfortable, quick and easy. There are many solutions for dental anxiety, and Ace Dental is ready to help.
Here are a few methods for easing anxiety in the dental office:
Let us know what you are afraid of is a great place to start. Often we can suppress a fear simply by giving you correct or updated information. Ace Dental will always keep you informed before, during and after your procedure, making sure that you understand what is going on and why we are doing it.
Many patients find it helpful to practice controlled breathing or to find distraction inside the room.
Listening to Music Or Watching TV:
With most procedures, the use of personal headphones and music is allowed. As well as we provide TV’s in the room for your convenience to watch a range of TV shows. This is a great way to keep calm and pass the time while in the chair.
Let us know if you would like to take a short break during your treatment by signaling with your left hand.
Oral health is important for the health of your whole body. Don’t let fear stand in your way of good dental care! Ace Dental can help you get the care that you need.
