Patients have different fears depending upon what caused them in the first place. Often times, fears come from things reminiscent of a dental experience.
If you avoid changing the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, Titensor Dental can suppress or eliminate your feelings with the use of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can reduce your dental fear or phobia and make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a confident, winning smile.
In order to understand better the levels of dental fear, psychologists developed the following distinctions between dental anxiety, dental fear, and dental phobia.
Titensor Dental will evaluate your specific concerns and recommend the appropriate sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry addresses some of the fears that can keep you from coming to our office on a regular basis. As a person that elects to use sedation dentistry, you are more likely to receive your recommended routine care at our office. With means to lessen your dental phobia, you are less likely to neglect your oral health or allow oral health problems to build to the point when perhaps initial, preventative dental care would have thwarted future extreme dental treatments.
Dental phobia can unseeingly affect your life. Not only does your dental health suffer, but also your dental phobia may lead to anxiety and depression. You may avoid meeting people, even close friends, because the appearance of your teeth causes you embarrassment. You may avoid job opportunities where smiling is in the job description. You may experience low self-esteem because you are upset with yourself because you cannot master a task as "simple" as going to a dentist, and you may develop feelings of guilt because you have not maintained proper dental care.
Yes! Titensor Dental offers sedation dentistry! Your exceptional dental experience can be anxiety-free and pain-free. Our personable, kind, and compassionate Titensor Dental staff's greatest concern is your comfort and well-being. We want you to be comfortable from the minute you anxiously walk into our office to the minute you smiling walk out our door.
