There are a number of studies proving dental anxiety being the top 10 most common fears along with spiders, snakes, and public speaking.
Are you surprised? Don’t be.
For 75% of Americans, dental anxiety is very common. They might not know, however, is modern dental technology has advanced at impressive rates to adapt to our fast moving society.
So let’s consider 3 real reasons why people (just like you) have avoided the dentist and analyze how our modern practice can help. Here we go:
Common reasons people avoid the dentist
Money doesn’t grow on trees. What many don’t realize, however, is there are viable solutions to help limit expenses. This is 2014 and addressing any dental issue, such as a chipped tooth or aches, are well within your price range.
For example, if you have dental insurance, we’ll teach you how to get the most out of it. By taking advantage of your coverage for bi-annual dental checkups and costly restorative treatments, you can get amazing work done at little or no cost at all. We’ll even help you conveniently balance treatments between two calendar years—resulting in impressive savings for you.
No dental insurance coverage? Don’t worry! Available financing and third-party insurances can help allay your concerns over dental costs. It all starts with finding out what works for you. Contact us today to learn more.
No one has time for booking multiple dentist appointments, but avoiding to go to the dentist all together is a bad idea you’ll later regret.
Fortunately, modern dentistry is able once again to solve this well-founded concern. Many procedures, including teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, dental crowns, and restorations, can be completed in only one dental visit—or even in one hour!
Also, thanks to sedation dentistry, multiple procedures can also be performed during a single appointment, leaving you more time to your day.
If you give us a call today, we can see what options are available that fit your busy schedule.
Bad childhood memories, needle-phobia, or a sensitive gag reflex cause anxiety (makes public speaking sound like a walk in the park). Fear not, modern dental science has already eliminated those fears for you. How? Dramatic improvements in both dental tools and techniques now ensure a gentler approach to treatment.
When you call or visit, just ask about our sedation dentistry options, establish a “Stop!” signal, or anything you feel uneasy about. Communicate your specific fears beforehand and we can adjust your treatment plan. This way you’ll receive the oral health care you need, completely anxiety-free.
