Have you ever had sweaty palms, got dizzy, or even felt faint during a dental appointment? Dental anxiety is a very common issue. Our dentists care about your comfort and we do our best to create a warm and calming atmosphere. First and foremost, we will listen and address your concerns to find out if a simple distraction will ease your anxiousness. In every exam room we have a second monitor that can display video, dvds, or internet radio. If you feel like you may have a more serious case of dental anxiety you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide and oral sedation are great options for patients that have had a negative dental experience.

Treating Gilbert Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety is a serious concern and ultimately we want to get to know you to better understand your past experiences. We will often start by simply asking what your previous dental experiences have been like and encourage you to share anything that may have been difficult or even traumatizing. Together we can figure out how to create the most positive and relaxing environment for you. Once we get started, if you are uncomfortable or feel anxious at any time, we can stop immediately. This way we can better understand what you are feeling and determine what makes sense for moving forward. We think communication is key to providing the best dental experience possible.
We know it may take several appointments to earn your trust, but we will take the time required to ease your dental anxiety.
