Do you ever feel nervous, or even anxious, before a dental appointment? You may be experiencing dental anxiety. If you are experiencing dental anxiety, you are not alone.

People can develop these anxieties and phobias for a number of reasons. Dr. [doctor_name] and our team have found that there are some common causes of dental anxiety.

Pain: Many adults are worried about experiencing pain or discomfort in a dental visit. This is likely because when they were young, many of the advances in “pain-free” dentistry had not come about yet.

Feelings of helplessness: Many dread feeling helpless or like they have no control. They have to sit still and cannot see what’s going on during a dental appointment. This can trigger anxiety in some patients.

Negative experiences from the past: If someone has experienced discomfort in past dental appointments, they may be worried about future dental experiences.

Our [dr_type] and team are committed to provide a friendly, comfortable environment for each of our patients. We will work with those who have dental anxieties to help them feel at ease during treatment. You having a positive experience is just as important to us as your good dental health.
