Compassionate Care for Patients with Dental Anxiety
Dental Anxiety – Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta – Information for Anxious Patients – Dental Choice
Our mission at Dental Choice is to provide comfortable treatments in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere so that all individuals feel relaxed and welcome at our offices. Our offices in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta are committed to providing such a high level of care that even patients with severe dental anxiety will find that there is no need to avoid receiving treatment.
Importance of Receiving Care
Some individuals with dental anxiety have had an unpleasant experience at other dental offices in the past, or they may have an innate phobia of undergoing dental work. As a result, they may avoid going to the dentist for long periods and neglect possible problems with their oral health. We know how important regular check-ups and cleanings are to maintaining a healthy mouth. Failure to receive necessary dental care could lead to serious tooth decay and gum disease that could eventually require tooth extractions, root canal therapy, or other extensive treatments to correct.
If your dental anxiety is keeping you from receiving dental care, we will strive to do everything we can to make your visit to our office as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We want all individuals to be able to receive the care that they need to have healthy, beautiful smiles.
Compassionate, Considerate Staff
Although advanced sedation dentistry technology is important in treating nervous patients, we believe that a compassionate and kind staff is just as necessary to easing dental anxiety. We have put together a team that takes great pride in providing extra TLC to every patient. Our team members listen to each patient's needs and tailor treatment to ease his or her specific fears and concerns. We also strive to make sure all appointments are on time as we believe this can greatly reduce patient stress as well.
The successful treatment of individuals with dental anxiety begins with lots of TLC from a gentle, compassionate staff. At each Dental Choice location in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, our dentists, hygienists, and team members are committed to providing outstanding dental care.
Types of Sedation Dentistry for Anxious Patients
We utilize several different types of sedation dentistry technology, including oral sedatives, nitrous oxide sedation, and IV sedation. These methods help patients relax and induce a sleep-like state so that they will not remember having received treatment. With this technology, longer procedures and multiple treatments can be performed without patient discomfort.
Some of our offices in Edmonton and Calgary offer "The Wand", an injection device that's far less intimidating than a standard syringe needle. The look and feel of the wand makes administering anaesthetics less intimidating, which reduces dental anxiety in anxious patients. Call our office in Edmonton or Calgary to find "the wand" at an office near you.
