Are you fearful of needles or generally anxious about dental appointments?

Are you fearful of needles or generally anxious about dental appointments? We understand and want to help you.

Welcome! We know that many people are fearful of the dental office for many reasons. Follow our blogs or call us for information about how we can make dental visits easier.

Do you avoid dental visits because the thought of needles makes you nervous? With our gentle approach, we can get you numb nearly, if not totally, pain free. First, we apply a gel that helps with the tissue comfort. Then, our technique involving a slow and steady delivery of the numbing medicine will help put the tooth and surrounding tissue to sleep. During this time, we are watching over you for your comfort and care. When the area has had time to "fall asleep," we check for numbness before any treatment begins. Patients also have the freedom to let us know how they are doing by raising their left hand. Your comfort comes first.

Some people have anxiety about gagging, choking, laying back in the chair, sensitivity and more. If this sounds like you , you are not alone and there are many techniques to get around these issues.
