Do you get stressed just thinking about going to the dentist? Many people are not fond of dental care, but some people have extreme dental anxiety or even dental phobia. If you are afraid of the dentist, you may avoid getting the oral care you need for a healthy smile. Our compassionate, friendly team at Carrington Square Dental welcomes patients with dental phobia to our practice in Waxhaw, NC. We strive to make sure our patients with dental anxiety feel safe and comfortable while we care for their smiles.
It is not simply mind over matter when it comes to extreme anxiety or phobias. You may rationally know that there is nothing to be afraid of when going to the dentist, but it does not change how your body reacts. Patients with dental phobia or anxiety need to be assured that their dental team will make them feel safe and comfortable. Our office at Carrington Square Dental is designed with comfort in mind. We provide blankets, pillows, headphones and TVs to make patients feel at home during their visits. Plus, we have a wonderful team of dental professionals that listen to our patients and personalize each visit. Plus, we offer sedation dentistry for our patients with dental phobia or anxiety.
Whether the sound of a dental drill makes you shiver, or needles make you cringe, if you suffer from dental anxiety or fear of the dentist, we have you covered. Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for those with severe anxiety or dental phobia. We have different types of sedation available for mild to severe dental anxiety. Nitrous oxide can relax those with mild to moderate dental anxiety, but for moderate to severe dental phobia, oral conscious sedation may be the best option.
Our goal at Carrington Square Dental is to provide the best dental care in the Waxhaw, NC, area for all our patients. If you have a dental phobia or anxiety, we can help you overcome your fear and receive the dental care you need. Contact our office to schedule your appointment, and let us know your concern about comfort. We can discuss sedation dentistry and other options to ensure your visits are stress-free.
