Care for Dental Phobia Patients at Northwest Implants & Sleep Dentistry
Posted on 10/2/2018 by Renee Bancroft
Although most dental procedures are not uncomfortable, it can feel that way for patients with dental anxiety, or those with a phobia. Just a simple dental exam can cause people to feel stressed, and add on possible dental treatment and it can really cause worry. We know how important oral health is when it comes to overall health and how much bad breath, sore gums, or an achy tooth impacts day-to-day life. At Northwest Implants and Sleep Dentistry, we strive to take away any stress revolving around visiting the dentist with our welcoming office, excellent staff, and multiple sedation options.
A Safe Place
It is estimated that 30-40 million Americans* avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear. There are varying degrees of dental anxiety, with dental phobia most often causing a person to avoid going to the dentist completely. Because of our unique ability to offer a range of sedation for our patients, we get to help a lot of people obtain dental treatment despite fear, anxiety, or phobia.
We have an excellent team of dentists and a warm staff that encourages patients to feel comfortable in our office. It does not matter if someone has not been to the dentist in years, is embarrassed of their smile, or is having tooth pain. We are prepared for it all and can get patients to a healthy smile in no time.
The Right Options For You
Our staff is here to listen to patient concerns and worries, and make a custom treatment plan. We provide preventive and general dentistry including exams, dental cleanings, and much more. Also, dental implants, fillings, crowns or bridges, and teeth whitening are just some of the restorative and cosmetic procedures Northwest Implants and Sleep Dentistry provide for our patients.
All of the above procedures can be performed under anesthesia. We provide nitrous oxide, conscious sedation, and general sedation based on the wishes and needs of our patients. For those with phobias, sedation is an excellent way of getting the dental treatment imperative to overall health while not having to go through the parts of a dental appointment that are stressful.
