Dental Anxiety & Fear

The overwhelming fear of dental appointments can be a common cause of anxiety. Many people visualize a drill-wielding man in a white coat just waiting to cause pain and remove teeth, or “choke” us with impression material. The reality, however, is very different. The comfort, relaxation and happiness of the patient are embedded deep at the heart of any good dental practice. The staff at our practice will do whatever they can to reduce anxiety, allay fears and provide painless, quick, comfortable treatments.

How can one overcome dental anxiety?

Here are some tips to help reduce dental fear and anxiety :

Talk to the denturist – The denturist is not a mind reader. Though it can be hard to talk about irrational fears with a stranger, the denturist can take extra precautions during visits if fears and anxiety are communicated.

If you have questions or concerns about how the denturist can help you overcome anxiety and fear, please contact the office.
