Many people have some type of dental anxiety. It may be fear or it may be embarrassment, and it affects more than 30% of Americans. Mountain View Family Dentistry is very sensitive to this issue.
A high percentage of those who do have this anxiety attribute it to something traumatic they experienced at the dentist's office when they were very young.
It may have been caused by a dentist who didn't have nitrous oxide or some other type of sedation, or who was insensitive to the fear that many kids have about dental appointments.
Regardless of where the fear starts, it can cause serious problems down the road. It can prevent someone from seeking dental care for many years at a time as they get older. Whether it's an emergency visit to treat some type of pain or a regularly-scheduled appointment to receive standard preventative dental work, unfulfilled visits to the dentist can result in a smile that you're embarrassed by.
Treating Dental Anxiety
Mountain View Family Dentistry and sedation dentist Dr. Shayne Guffey have a number of tools that can make fearful dental visits a thing of the past for you. Oral sedation and nitrous oxide can be part of the plan we put in place so that you feel relaxed, comfortable, and confident while you're with us.
Dr. Guffey ia a member of DOCS, or the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and is ready to apply his knowledge of sedation dentistry to your case of the dental jitters. You're in good hands.
Treating your dental anxiety may involve some of our high-tech procedures, but it starts and ends with the human touch from our caring and respectful dental team. They have experience with patients who experience fear and anxiety when going to the dentist. It's all part of our belief that our patients should have the option of pain-free dental care. Your peace of mind is always our top priority.
You're welcome to call Mountain View Family Dentistry for a free phone consultation. If you do, we encourage you to mention any dental anxiety you may have. When Dr. Guffey and his associates meet with you in person, they will explain in detail the steps that will be taken to assure your comfort during your appointments with them.
