Do You Suffer from Dental Anxiety?

Dental anxiety is something that many Americans suffer from. Dental phobia is a condition that we take very seriously at Lifetime Smiles. We understand that many people dislike coming to the dentist, so it’s vital that we strive to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and inviting for each of the patients who come to us. No matter how old you may be, dental anxiety is something that happens to many people. It’s a real condition that we want to help you overcome, which is why we provide sedation dentistry for those who need to calm down before our dentist does what he needs to, to ensure that you have perfect oral health. We can help you overcome panic-stricken terror and unease when you come to the dentist with our sedation dentistry services.

If you’re at least a little bit afraid to go to the dentist’s office, you’re not alone. Being afraid of the dentist isn’t just something that children feel and sometimes that fear doesn’t just stop at childhood. Researchers estimate that as many as 235 million adults in the United States share your fear. While we can assure you that there’s nothing to be afraid of at our office, we understand your fear — so many people have had a bad experience at the dentist before.

To help ease your anxiety, we offer all levels of regular sedation dentistry to IV sedation dentistry, from laughing gas to anxiety medication to full anesthesia provided by our in-house anesthesiologist. Few dental offices are equipped to provide patients with full anesthesia, so we’re proud to offer our patients this service. We want to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible when you come to our dental office, which is why we offer this variety of sedation dentistry.

In addition to helping patients who suffer from extreme dental anxiety, sedation dentistry allows us to give patients higher-quality dental care in less time and provide a greater degree of safety for more involved procedures. We understand your fear going to the dentist, which is why we make it as painless and simple as possible when you come to our Austin dentist.
