Dental Anxiety: Don’t Let It Keep You From A Healthy Smile
Welcome back to the ongoing blog of Millburn Dental Arts! In today’s blog, we would like to talk to you about a very important subject: dental anxiety. If you suffer from dental fear or anxiety and are avoiding visiting the dentist because of it, this post is for you. We would love to help you get the care you need by employing a few services and techniques to help you feel more comfortable.
Our Millburn, NJ dental practice offers local anesthesia, and a variety of other comfort amenities. Our goal is to help you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible during your visit to our office. Regular dental care is important — if you have been putting it off, we can help you get your smile up to par in a safe, relaxing environment.
Avoiding Dental Health Care
If you have been avoiding a trip to the dentist, you may be at risk for serious dental health problems. By NOT seeking treatment when you notice something is wrong, or simply not getting the checkups you need, you could experience severe oral health issues. Regular cleanings and exams help us make sure all is well in your mouth — if you are not being checked out on a regular basis, you could have a slew of growing concerns.
A common problem that often goes unchecked is gum disease. Because gum disease often does not show any signs in its early stages, it is easy for patients who experience dental anxiety to ignore. Gum disease, when left untreated, can lead to receding gums, chronic bad breath, and even tooth loss! The sooner you seek help, the better chance we will have of reversing the disease and saving your teeth.
Please do not let fear or anxiety ruin your oral health. We can help you! Read on to learn more about the many ways in which we can help you feel more comfortable in our office.
Our first line of defense against discomfort is local anesthesia. We use this before every procedure that may produce discomfort in order to numb the area and eliminate your ability to feel pain. If you are concerns about feeling us working in your mouth, don’t be — we will make sure you are completely numb before beginning your treatment.
Other Comfort Amenities
We offer a variety of comfort options that can help you feel at home while you are in our care. We employ the latest dental technology, such as laser dentistry, to ensure the utmost comfort. We also maintain an experienced, helpful staff. We work hard to make sure you have a pleasant experience.
We also offer longer appointment times and private operatories. We understand that you may not want the knowledge of your dental care available to everyone in our office, so we provide privacy. We also never want you to feel like you are being rushed. Longer appointment times means that you can take the visit at your own pace.
