Don’t Let Dental Anxiety Steal Your Healthy Smile! [BLOG]

It’s not typical for people to get wildly excited about their dentist appointments. You don’t see social media posts where people are counting down the days until their next dental cleaning or see people bouncing out of their cars and skipping across the parking lot of the dentist office whistling a happy tune.

For the most part, though, patients may have butterflies or anxiousness heading into an appointment, but it’s easy to overcome in the first few minutes and isn’t enough to keep them from getting the routine care they need for good oral health.

But there are millions of people in this country who don’t fall into that category. They are people who have a level of dental anxiety that makes it almost impossible to step foot inside a dentist office. In fact, they may not ever go unless they suffer a dental injury or can’t stand the pain of a toothache any longer.

Those are the patients we’re talking about today, and if you feel like that describes you, you need to know that it’s possible to conquer your dental anxiety with help from the right team!

Your friends at Just Smiles are here to change the way you experience dental appointments so you can feel more comfortable and confident about routine care for the rest of your life. We’ll do whatever we can to get your oral health back on track and give you the healthy smile you deserve!

How To Conquer Your Dental Anxiety

Here are some of the ways we can make your dental appointments easier and make you feel more at ease:

  • Comfort Amenities – You can feel at home with our amenities like blankets, pillows, high-speed internet access, and patient-friendly technology. When you’re able to get cozy and distract yourself from the usual environmental triggers of the dentist office, it’s easier to lay back in the dental chair and relax.
  • Dental Sedation Options – Sometimes, a comfortable atmosphere isn’t quite enough to calm severe dental anxiety. For that, we can provide one of two forms of dental sedation to help you relax. You can choose a sedative in pill form or administered through an IV according to your treatment plan and level of anxiety to suit your needs. Both are incredibly effective in calming your nerves and allowing you to get the dental treatment you need to rebuild your oral health and make you feel more confident during appointments moving forward.
