Dental anxiety is a recognized psychological condition, where an individual experiences heightened stress and anxiety before and during regular dental procedures. Here at Artistic Dentistry we have seen many patients that struggle with dental anxiety and we are pleased to share our insights to help you manage it.
When you are scheduling your upcoming appointment, please feel free to let us know if you have had issues with dental anxiety in the past. This way, we can be prepared to take a little extra time to answer your questions and address any concerns. In many cases, being able to ask informed questions helps people with dental anxiety come to terms with the situation.
There are some people that experience dental anxiety related to a sense that the mouth is an intimate part of the body. It’s important to remember that everyone working at Artistic Dentistry is a highly trained dental professional. We are all dedicated to providing you with the highest level of oral healthcare.
Some individuals find that breathing nitrous oxide helps them to relax and ease feelings of anxiety. If this is an option you would like to explore, please feel free to ask Dr. Bryce E. Justesen or our hygienist at the start of the appointment.
