Compassionate dentistry for individuals and families
If you feel nervous or afraid to go to the dentist, you’re not alone. Some studies suggest that over 50% of patients experience some degree of dental anxiety. In some cases, fear of the dentist can even prevent people from seeking the care and treatment they need. If you live in or around Mason, OH and are one of the millions of Americans who struggle with dental anxiety, our understanding and compassionate team at Cedar Village Dentistry is here to help.
We understand that your fear is very real, and it can make visiting the dentist an unpleasant experience. We work to provide a calming and warm environment, always discuss everything we do with you before we do it, and offer sedation options.
Call us at (513) 770-4370 today to discuss your concerns, fears, and needs.
Causes and signs of dental anxiety
People experience dental anxiety for a variety of reasons and it can look very different depending on your situation, personality, and history. A traumatic event, fear of pain, fear of needles, generalized anxiety, or other existing mental health issues are just some of the common causes of dental anxiety.
Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize what exactly is causing your anxiety and how to address it, especially if you’re not sure of the root cause.
Here are a few common symptoms of dental anxiety:
Increased heart rate
Trouble sleeping or focusing leading up to an appointment
Frequently canceling appointments
Stomach pain or nausea
An empathetic, patient-centered approach to dentistry
Anxiety doesn’t have to stop you from getting the care you need and deserve. We ensure open communication with patients so you never have to worry about asking questions. We’re ready to help you find an individualized approach that addresses your concerns.
Sedation options for patients with dental anxiety or dental phobia
Patients with anxiety enjoy working with Dr. Dooley because he always prioritizes comfort and offers a completely judgment-free environment. Sedation dentistry can be a wonderful option for patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety and can ensure you receive the care you need without fear, pain, or worry.
