A fear of going to the dentist is a common phobia. Dentophobia is a real phenomenon and can impact a person’s oral and overall health. For some, going to the dentist may be mildly uncomfortable or cause a slight anxiety. For others, the fear can be intense enough to keep them from getting the oral care they need for their teeth and gums. At The Dentist Centers, we understand that many people have varying anxiety levels about dental care, and we have specialized options to make visits to our office less stressful.
To help our patients with dental anxiety get the oral care they need, we provide a calm, relaxed atmosphere. Every patient receives personalized attention and is encouraged to be involved in the process of improving their oral health. We utilize the latest dental technology like intra-oral cameras and digital imaging to share information about your oral health. Understanding why treatments are necessary and how they can benefit your health can help minimize stress. Dr. Myers and the rest of our team take the time to answer any questions and go over all the options available to maintain a healthy smile.
Gentle Dental Care with Your Comfort in Mind
Many times, dental phobia or anxiety stems from a fear of pain or discomfort during dental procedures. We offer several options to help our patients relax and minimize any discomfort during their visits. Sedation with nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation is available and effective for combatting dental anxiety. We also use DentalVibe for painless injections, as a fear of needles is often a part of dental phobia. It is our goal to ensure all our patients have as little discomfort as possible during their visits.
