What causes dental anxiety?
Dental anxiety comes from a number of places such as a previous dental experience that hurt or caused you to be afraid for some reason. Often times, patients report negative experiences from their childhoods that created a severe dental phobia. Whether it was a painful procedure, feeling helpless in the dental chair, or a dentist that wouldn’t listen when you said it hurt, we want to reassure you that you will have a different experience at Atlantic Dental.
You are always in charge of your appointment while you are here and we will take the time necessary to get to know you so that we understand your dental history and how we can best take care of you. If you have dental anxiety, we have solutions to help you feel relaxed and calm at your dental appointment.
We offer nitrous oxide to help you feel completely relaxed. If you think nitrous oxide might be for you, give us a call and we can set you up for a consultation so you can have the dentistry you need without the stress.
