Dental anxiety can be mild and only sporadic – or it can be an intense and frequent occurrence. When the latter is true, your dental fear can keep you from getting the care you need to keep your smile healthy. That can result in small problems that go untreated and turn into more complex ones. This tends to create an even more fearful reaction.
We want to help you break out of this cycle for good! Call us today for an appointment at one of our three Lexington, KY locations. We will discuss how we can help you overcome your fear.
In the meantime check out some of our calming options:
- Introductory Visits – Not knowing what to expect can be a big part of what causes anxiety. We’ll be happy to show you around on your first visit. You can familiarize yourself with our facility and caring team. We can also discuss options like a signal for a treatment break. For example, you can use a raised hand to show us you’d like to take a brief pause.
- Three Kinds of Sedation – Unlike many general dentists, we offer three kinds of sedation. This ensures you’ll be able to use one that is right for your anxiety level and the procedure you’re receiving. Fast-acting laughing gas is our lightest form of sedation, while an oral sedative and IV sedation offer a more relaxed sensation. We’ll discuss each method with you, to help you find the right one.
- Comfort-Enhancing Technology – We’ve invested in equipment that maximizes comfort and minimizes hassle, so you’ll feel more at ease receiving treatment. That includes ultrasonic scalers that lessen the need for scraping during cleanings and electronic endodontics that make it quicker and easier to clean out your tooth during root canals.
- Lots of Special Touches – Our Tempur-Pedic dental chairs are really comfortable. We’ll offer you safety glasses to keep harsh light out of your eyes, headphones so you can tune out sounds that bother you, and cozy pillows and blankets.
