From what I learned from my long-term of experience, so when we have patient with dental anxiety, the best thing to do is listen to the patient and speak to the patient and spend more time with the patient, try to understand the reason for this anxiety and try to avoid it. Believe me, this has helped a lot to ease the pressure and make the patient more relaxed to continue the treatment.
Sometimes, we may have to prescribe some relaxant. People, they take it just to help them to overcome this fear or this anxiety. One more thing, the nitrous oxide is wonderful tool to ease the pressure, relieve the anxiety, and make the patient feel more comfort. That's what we use here at Attleboro Family Dental Care.
- Missing dental exams, cleanings, and other routine care means problems can go undetected until you’re in pain. It’s far easier and less expensive to treat problems like dental decay and gum disease in their early stages.
- Avoiding the dentist means missing the opportunity to correct aspects of your smile that you don’t like.
Fortunately, our dentists and caring staff have years of experience in soothing dental anxiety. And we use advanced dental technology to keep your treatments quick, efficient, and comfortable.
