Common Concerns Questions About Dental Anxiety

What makes me so apprehensive about visiting the dentist?

It is not uncommon to feel unease due to previous experiences, fear of discomfort or simply the unknown. Recognizing these feelings is the first step to overcoming them at our clinic.

How can I calm my nerves before my appointment?

Openly share your feelings with our dental professionals. We are trained to make adjustments to ensure your comfort. Techniques like deep breathing and listening to calming tunes can also be beneficial.

Are there any sedation options available?

Absolutely. We provide various sedation dentistry options, from gentle relaxants to stronger measures for deeper relaxation.

Is sedation dentistry suitable for children?
