If you’ve had a bad or painful experience at the dentist, it can affect how you feel about future dental appointments. It can even cause so much anxiety that you might never step foot in a dental office again. There are many reason people are anxious about getting dental treatment, including fear of pain, being scolded by the dentist for bad dental hygiene, reliving a traumatic experience as a child or fear of needles.
We Cater to Cowards with Sedation Dentistry
When you avoid regular check-ups, it can be detrimental to your oral health and even lead to more serious health conditions. Many people who have dental phobia pass it on to their children without even realizing it.
The doctors and staff at Hylan Dental Care of Aurora understand how much dental anxiety can affect whether or not you or a family member visit the dentist. We want to do everything we can to make going to the dentist as comfortable and relaxing as possible, and we can accomplish this with safe and effective sedation options to help you relax or even feel so sleepy that you won’t remember anything about your appointment. To read more about this, please see our sedation dentistry page.
