Help Me, I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Yuma Sleep DentistryIf you are afraid of your dentist, you are not alone. At Yuma Family Dentist, we encounter many patients coping with dental anxiety. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment, and earn lifelong patients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended care. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including sedation dentistry. This allows our patients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental services.

2) Dental treatment never begins until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every patient reacts to numbing agents differently.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Yuma Family Dentist which help our dental patients concentrate on something pleasant during treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sedation dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Yuma Family Dentist, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. In addition to sedation dentistry, we provide general dentistry and a wide range of other serivces including dental implants. Make an appointment with us today.
