Do you feel frustrated about your oral health because you always fully intend to schedule visits to see us, whether for preventive or restorative care, but you suffer from severe dental anxiety? If so, keep in mind that you are one of many patients who feel too nervous to set up or follow through with dental appointments. Even better news: We have some suggestions (like receiving nitrous oxide) that will help you enjoy exceptionally relaxing visits. Always remember to call and speak with us if you have any questions, so we can do our best to accommodate you.
Tip #1: Request Nitrous Oxide
For patients dealing with anxiety – any level of anxiety, from mild nerves to extreme nervousness – we suggest you learn more about nitrous oxide. This is a sedative that you will inhale (no injections necessary). As a result, you can achieve a pleasant state of relaxation, so you feel completely at ease during dental visits. We suggest you request this option, so we may determine whether you qualify and may begin incorporating it into your care.
Tip #2: Don’t Keep Questions Bottled Up
Are there questions that are causing your severe dental anxiety to become worse? Perhaps you want to come in for a preventive visit but you simply want to know what to expect. Or, maybe you would like to request nitrous oxide but you’re not sure if we offer sedation for preventive care (we do). We much prefer you ask us your questions, so we may respond and provide you with the reassurance you need.
