Do you fear going to the dentist? You aren’t the only one.
According to one study, between 9% and 15% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety and fear. There are various reasons for dental anxiety. Some people are worried there will be pain, others simply do not enjoy the lack of personal space. If you are nervous about going to the dentist, it is important to realize you are not alone and then discuss your concerns with your dentist.
At Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want to make sure you have a worry-free visit at our practice. Discussing your fears and concerns is the first step to easing your anxiety. Our dental team has worked with all types of patients and can help provide you with strategies to relieve your fears.
In addition, we also provide services such as nitrous oxide and doctor-prescribed treatment that can help with dental anxiety. Some of these treatments do require you have a driver to take you home, so please give our office a call with any questions. We're happy to discuss options with you and make your visit as enjoyable as possible!
