Receive Comfortable Care & Improve Your Oral Health

Pain may be the most common concern people have when it comes to dental treatment. We want you to know that your comfort is as much a priority as your oral health when you visit our office:

  • For your mental comfort, you can count on our compassionate team to do everything we can to help you relax. Blankets and pillows can keep you cozy, while in-room televisions can provide a welcome distraction.
  • For your physical comfort, we use advanced techniques and technology to make general care as painless as possible.
  • To ensure your comfort, we also offer both local anesthesia and dental sedation. Our inhaled sedation (laughing gas) works quickly to keep you calm and to help block pain. It also wears off quickly when your treatment is complete.

The most important thing we do is getting to know you as an individual. By understanding your concerns, we can provide you with personalized care so you can reduce your anxiety about dental services.

Your oral health and your overall health are deeply connected. When your mouth is in good shape, you can eat a variety of foods and get the nutrition you need. From an emotional standpoint, feeling good about your smile can make a difference in both your personal and professional life. By working with our caring team, you can conquer your fear of dental care. You can improve your oral health and create better-looking teeth.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

How common is dental anxiety?

Dental anxiety is more common than you might think! Cleveland Clinic research has found that at least 1 out of 10 Americans avoid going to the dentist due to anxiousness. Even patients who don’t miss their routine appointments sometimes experience anxiety at the dentist. Whether you feel nervous only sometimes or at every visit, we can help you relax.

How can I overcome dental anxiety?

We encourage you to inform us about your anxiety so we can work with you to manage it or overcome it. Understanding why you are afraid of the dentist can help you get over your fears. If the sights and sounds of the dental office bother you, for example, you might want to listen to a podcast or music while we work. You can also ask for laughing gas to relax you.

Can dental issues cause anxiety?

If you do not address dental problems like cavities or periodontal disease in their early stages, you’ll require more expensive and difficult treatments to address them later. This can naturally make you feel at least a little bit nervous. That’s why it is essential to see us routinely for dental exams and cleanings. These preventive solutions can stop issues from ever taking place.
