Are you nervous about scheduling your next dentist appointment?
Dental anxiety often holds patients back from receiving their necessary dental care. Unfortunately, procrastinating on dental care only leads to dental concerns worsening over time. Additionally, if you do not receive preventative dental care on a regular basis, you are more at risk for destructive dental diseases and issues that have costly consequences. At Esthetic Dental Solutions, we strive to make our office a space of tranquility for our patients so you don’t have to worry about your next dental appointment. However, we understand that many patients have dental anxiety that extends outside of our office. Whether you have had a bad experience in a previous dentist’s chair or if you are uncomfortable with loud noises and drilling sounds, our office is here to help you with sedation dentistry solutions. With our variety of sedative options, we will help you feel relaxed and calm before, during, and after your procedure.
Dental Anxiety: What You Need To Know
While dental concerns can be anxiety-inducing, it’s important not to procrastinate on seeking dental care. If you suspect something is wrong with your gums, teeth, or jawbone, odds are this issue will not get better on its own. You need to seek professional dental help to avoid the progression of smaller issues into larger, more costly ones.
Preventative care is the best way to avoid major dental issues. We recommend scheduling regular appointments with your trusted dentist in Alpharetta, GA, at least once every six months. While this means that you will need to see your dentist more frequently, it also means that you are less likely to develop dental issues that result in more invasive and costly procedures that are often the source of most dental anxiety in the first place.
Dental Anxiety: What You Can Do
For our most anxious patients, we recommend sedation dentistry options. Sedation dentistry has helped patients with even the most extreme fear of the dentist experience comfortable and enjoyable appointments. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry options, including:
- Local Anesthetic
- The Wand Anesthesia System
- Oral Sedation
- Nitrus Oxide (Laughing gas)
