How to Overcome Dental Anxiety and Phobia

If you have fears of the dentist, you are not alone. Many people avoid going to the dentist because of bad memories from a childhood experience or other factors. But there is good news! Thanks to innovations in sedation and dental technology, there is no need to fear the dentist’s office.

Dr. Amy Farmer is an experienced dentist with a gentle touch. If you suffer from dental anxiety or phobia, read on to learn how she can help you overcome your fears.

Overcoming Dental Fears Is All About Options for Comfort

The main thing most fearful patients share in common is the fact that they feel as though they have no control when they are sitting in a dental chair. If you believe you have a measure of control, you are likely to feel far more comfortable. Your dentist should offer different sedation options to choose from to help put you at ease and help you relax during your procedure.

Make sure you choose a dentist with a relaxing office environment. At the office of Dr. Amy Farmer, you will be checked in to a private room and offered amenities like a soft pillow, a paraffin wax treatment for your hands and even a heated towel to freshen up with, prior to leaving the office.

We also offer sedation medication to patients that want to be in an even more relaxed state. You can choose from options such as nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas. Or, we can sedate you with oral medication, so you will remember very little, if any, of your appointment. We will listen to your fears, and we will develop a plan that is customized to calm your specific fears and anxiety.
