How to Overcome Dental Anxiety

Ready to start the dental examine.Do you or a loved one have a fear of the dentist, or dental phobia? Do you feel anxious when it comes to catching up on even routine dental services like cleanings and exams? If you do, then having treatment is probably even more difficult for you to complete – meaning that the health and integrity of your smile can be compromised over time.
Overcoming your anxiety around dental care can be very challenging. In fact, some people never get over it at all. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you know your smile needs more attention:

Find a Gentle, Stress-Free Dental Office

Some dentists try to push you through procedures quickly, just to get them over with. Rather than making it better, you feel worse than before. Sleep Dentistry of Spokane will never do anything to make you feel uncomfortable, and will take things at the speed you feel happy with.

Consider Sedation Dentistry

Choosing an ambulatory care facility that offers in-house dental sedation can help you catch up on all of your dental care needs at one time. Many offices offer nitrous oxide sedation, but very few actually provide certified general anesthesia inside of their office.

Sleep Dentistry of Spokane provides:

  • General Anesthesia
  • IV Sedation (Twilight Sleep Sedation)
  • Oral Sedation
  • Nitrous Oxide

Maintain Routine Preventive Care

Rather than waiting for something to hurt and needing more aggressive treatment, preventive services stop them early on before the pain starts.
