Do you avoid needed dental care due to a dental phobia or anxiety about visiting a dentist? Dental phobia is one of the most common fears, yet it can be detrimental to your health. Caring for your teeth and gums is important for a beautiful, lasting smile and overall health. At Monaco Dentistry, we help our patients with dental phobia or anxiety feel comfortable and get the dental care they need.
Our team at Monaco Dentistry understands that many of our patients would prefer to be anywhere else than at our office.
We don’t take it personally, as we know that dental phobia usually is due to bad experiences that happened many years before at a different dental office. We do our best to change how our patients perceive dental care services. Our modern office has many amenities that can help you relax. Our comfortable treatment rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, blankets, pillows and warm, scented towels. You can relax and watch a show while you get your dental care, keeping your mind off any anxiety you may have about your dental treatment.
While our friendly team and comfort amenities are enough to relax most of our patients, those with dental anxiety may need a little more help to feel at ease. We have sedation options available to calm your nerves when you come to us for your dental care. Dr. Amrooei can discuss our options with you before your dental visit. We have nitrous oxide, which has a mild sedative effect without leaving you groggy or impaired after your appointment. Another option is anxiety medication that can be prescribed to take before your dental visit. The medication can help you feel calm when coming to our office and during your appointment.
If you are nervous about dental care or have a dental phobia, please let our team know. We can help you overcome your anxiety so that you can get the dental care you need for a healthy, beautiful smile. Contact Monaco Dentistry today to schedule an appointment for you or a family member.
