Dental anxiety can be an insidious and overwhelming problem for many dental patients. Dental anxiety may keep you out of the dentist’s chair, and thus prevent you from getting the crucial treatments you need. Our Saint Louis dentists truly believe that helping patients overcome fear of dentistry is one of the most important things that we can do. That is why we…
1. Listen to our patients
We take the time to really get to know our dental patients, so that we can understand their fears and concerns. We develop, and maintain, clear lines of communication, so that the people we treat can come to use with their questions and anxieties. You’re always an active participant in your own treatment.
2. Use state-of-the-art treatments
The innovative and modern treatments that we use, like Lumineers and mini dental implants, make dental treatment faster and more comfortable than it was years ago. The types of dental treatment that we provide are not the same options that you remember from childhood.
3. Offer sedation options
Sedation treatment has been completely life changing for many people who suffer from dental fear and anxiety. Oral conscious sedation will help you relax in the dentist’s chair, and avoid experiencing pain and discomfort. And all you have to do in order to start reaping the benefits of oral conscious sedation is to take a small pill about an hour before your appointment. It is truly that easy!
When you talk to our Saint Louis sedation dentists, don’t be shy in discussing any questions or concerns you may have about pursuing dental treatment. We are to here to listen to you and give you the information that you need so that you can start making strong decisions for your smile. Let’s get serious about defeating dental anxiety, together.
