Going to the dentist can be hard, especially if you’ve had negative experiences in the past. These can sometimes create dental anxiety, which can make it harder to keep the dental appointments that are so important to your continued dental health. Let’s take a look at what sorts of things can cause dental anxiety, as well as a few methods of managing it.
–Past Experience: If you have had painful procedures in the past, it may make it harder for you to continue seeing your dentist in the future. Trust that at Smile Designer, we will do all we can to make you as comfortable as possible. Our skilled staff will assist you in anything in our power that you need.
–Lack of Control: Sometimes patients have negative mental or emotional conditions that can be triggered by a feeling of helplessness. Remember that at our office, you are in complete control of the situation and can stop or pause the procedure at almost any point.
–Anxiety: If you are struggling with dental anxiety, ask our office about the possibility of sedation dentistry. Sedation can help you feel relaxed, calm, and comfortable during your procedure. Talk with our team about the sedation dentistry options available at Smile Designer.
