If you have gone out of your way to avoid getting necessary dental treatment due to dental anxiety, we want to help. At Rahn Dental Group, we understand that our patients may experience anxiety about dental procedures. We also know that this avoidance will become problematic because a healthy smile depends on ongoing care and preventative measures. Your smile needs periodic dental cleanings and checkups to spot potential problems, including early gum disease and dental caries. To help you understand your anxiety, and that you are not alone, let’s look at some of the common causes:
–Fear of the side effects of anesthesia.
–Fear of receiving injections or that the injection won’t work.
–Fear of not being in control while sitting through a procedure, and feeling vulnerable or helpless.
–Fear of experiencing pain, either from a past negative experience or from hearing others share their stories of negative experiences.
At Rahn Dental Group in Dayton, Ohio, we are excited to offer relief to our patients by providing nitrous oxide (or laughing gas), oral sedation and IV sedation to help our patients feel calm, comfortable and relaxed during their treatment. We have found these methods to be both safe and effective in allowing our patients to have the most positive experience possible.
So if you are ready to overcome your dental anxiety with the help of our dedicated team, we invite you to give us a call. At Rahn Dental Group, we strive to give you the best possible experience while getting the quality care you deserve. You can reach Drs. Quinttus, Budde, and Sullivan and their team in Dayton, Ohio, by calling (937) 435-0324 today.
