Why does going to the dentist give me anxiety?
If you get nervous before or during a dentist appointment, you’re not alone. In fact, dental anxiety is a problem for almost 40% of the country’s population.
The most common reason people have a fear of the dentist is that they don’t know exactly what to expect. Will the treatment be uncomfortable? How long will it take? Will it cost more than I expected? Will it be successful?
At Village Dental, we specialize in treating patients with dental anxiety. We believe that you have a right to understand everything about your procedure and be an active participant in your care. We’ll answer all your questions and pay special attention to your comfort from beginning to end.
Why we’re committed to reducing your dental anxiety
When dental anxiety is present, the most common response is to simply not go to the dentist. It’s a natural reaction to want to avoid these unpleasant feelings completely. Unfortunately, this can lead to poor oral care overall and even worse dental problems, including:
- Plaque and tartar buildup
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
We want to help you be proactive in your care. When you keep your routine exams and cleanings and address problems when they’re small, you’ll be faced with fewer procedures and fewer dental expenses down the road.
“Whether I’m visiting for something as simple as a cleaning, or as complex as an implant, I am always treated with respect and kindness and the results are solid. If you have any fear of dental treatment, your mind will be changed after visiting Village Dental.”
