Going to the dentist can be nerve-wracking, especially if you’ve had a difficult experience or two in the past. These can sometimes create dental anxiety. Even if you deal with dental anxiety, it is important for you to schedule and keep your dental appointments regularly. Luckily, we are here to help! Let’s take a look at a couple of causes of dental anxiety, as well as a few methods of managing it.
If you have had a painful procedure in the past, it may make it harder for you to continue seeing your dentist. Trust that at Vincent C. Mayher, DMD, MAGD, we will do all we can to make you as comfortable and secure as possible. Our skilled staff will assist you in anything that you need.
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. It may be beneficial to you to learn more detail about the procedure or cleaning that you will experience, by asking our expert staff. This will help you know exactly what to expect, which may help relieve some stress.
If you are still struggling with dental anxiety, it may be a good idea to ask our office about the possibility of sedation dentistry. Sedation can help you feel relaxed, calm, and comfortable during your appointment. Talk with our team about the sedation dentistry options available at Vincent C. Mayher, DMD, MAGD.
