Afraid of the Dentist?
Many people are less than enthusiastic about dental care. However, for some people, even the thought of visiting a dentist causes anxiety. If you avoid dental care due to a fear of needles or you have a dental phobia, it could negatively affect your health and smile. At Laguna West Dental Care, we understand that dental treatments can be uncomfortable for some of our patients with dental fear or anxiety. We do our best to ease those fears and provide a relaxing, safe environment for our patients.
Many times, dental anxiety stems from a bad experience. Not all dentists and dental professionals are the same, and one bad apple can leave a lasting negative impression on the entire profession. Our dental team members at Laguna West Dental Care are dedicated to providing compassionate, gentle dental care to each of our patients. We never rush patients or ask them to endure anything that makes them overly uncomfortable. Our patient-centric approach will help put you at ease and make your visits to our office less stressful.
Sedation Options for Dental Anxiety
While we strive to help our patients feel relaxed with our friendly atmosphere, we know some patients need more than a reassuring smile. Our office offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for those with dental phobia or anxiety to help them relax during dental treatments. When our patients are calm and comfortable under sedation, we can perform our treatments more efficiently. Knowing you are relaxed and at ease makes it easier for us to provide you with the best quality dental care. Ask about our sedation options when you schedule your next visit.
Do not let a fear of dental care stop you from maintaining a healthy, gorgeous smile. Laguna West Dental Care is your source in the Elk Grove area for gentle, compassionate dental care with sedation dentistry available. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for you or a family member.
