One of the biggest obstacles standing between millions of adults and great oral health is dental anxiety.
What’s so heartbreaking about that fact is how avoidable it is to let fear keep you from getting the dental care you need!
Our team at Appalachian Dental Care in Boone, NC hopes to change the way you see and experience dentistry with today’s blog!
Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Fear The Dentist
You don’t have to fear the dentist when you come to Appalachian Dental Care for treatment. Here are a couple of reasons why:
*Because We Cater To Your Comfort*
The dentist office, at least ours in Boone, NC, isn’t what it used to be.
In the past, every medical or dental office was pretty much the same, a cold, uninviting place with outdated magazines and that familiar sterile smell that sets those butterflies in your stomach in motion.
When you visit us, though, you’ll feel more like you’re in a spa than at the dentist. Here are some of the ways we cater to your comfort:
*We offer longer appointment times so you don’t feel rushed.
*You can lay back in a comfortable massage chair.
*You’ll feel comfy and cozy with a neck pillow and warm blanket.
*Our semi-private rooms help us maintain a more calming, quiet atmosphere.
We want you to feel safe and supported, so please let us know if there’s anything you need in order to feel more comfortable during your appointments with us!
*Because We Offer Dental Sedation*
If you haven’t been to the dentist in the last few years, you might be pleasantly surprised to know that there are new, effective ways to help you feel more relaxed.
Dental sedation is a great strategy for overcoming dental anxiety in fearful patients.
At Appalachian Dental Care, you can choose inhaled sedation, or laughing gas, to calm your nerves just before your treatment.
Or you could choose a stronger option, oral sedation in pill form, which our dentist can prescribe for you to take before you arrive so you’ll feel more deeply relaxed and comfortable.
You can talk to us more thoroughly about our sedation options and which would suit your needs best.
*Gain Confidence & Better Dental Health*
When you’ve had a chance to experience patient-centered care in a modern practice like Appalachian Dental Care, you’ll slowly gain confidence with each visit and treatment.
You’ll feel like you’re among family, people who care about your feelings, concerns, and needs. And you’ll feel less and less anxious about appointments knowing that dental sedation is available to help you relax.
Eventually, you can overcome the things that make you nervous about coming to the dentist, such as:
*Fear of pain
*Feeling rushed through appointments
*Shame or embarrassment about your oral health
*Tooth sensitivity or a sensitive gag reflex
*Environmental triggers like the sounds and smells of a dental office
We’re excited to help you get back to the dentist and will do all we can to make you feel calm, relaxed, and comfortable!
