There are many obstacles to patients putting off needed treatment even when they realize that earlier intervention usually leads to better results, better long term prognosis, reduced costs, and less discomfort.
One of these major obstacles is the anxiety. This may be because of the “unknown”, hearing other “horror” stories of pain from other friends, or even from unpleasant experiences from the past.
Although it should be somewhat comforting to know that the dental profession is always evolving and improving not only in results, but patient experience, it is understandable that this in itself is not reassuring enough. For this reason, we dedicate ourselves to providing what it takes to make our patient experience better than the past.
- If for some reason we need to change the focus of our patient from the past and/or bad expectations, we can utilize:
- Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
- Oral Sedation Medications
- IV Sedation
Many times we can combine techniques for even better anxiety control. Of course, none of this would work if we did not work to earn your trust to begin with. We always have you in mind. Please stop by to discuss your concerns.
