How to Put Dental Fear in the Rearview Mirror

Relieving Dental Anxiety - San Antonio, TX | Advanced Dental Associates

Dental fear can take a toll on your smile. It can keep people away from the dentist or cause them to put off necessary dental care. Advanced Dental Associates, our leading San Antonio TX dental office, is skilled at putting patients at ease and even using the latest tools and resources to keep patients comfortable.   

It’s estimated that about 20 percent of all Americans suffer from dental fear — and as many as 5 percent of Americans avoid the dentist altogether because they are afraid. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while or fear what the dentist might see, just know that dentistry has changed for the better. The procedures are less invasive than ever before, and we’re using state-of-the-art technology to achieve better results.

You can schedule your first visit with us by calling the office at 210-880-3043 or use the online form to book a visit.

Dental Care Under One Roof

If you visit Advanced Dental Associates, you can expect to receive all of your care under one roof. So you don’t have to spend your time driving around from one dental office to the other to complete your care. You can do everything at our facility, from making your smile beautiful with cosmetic dentistry to restoring your entire mouth. We can even replace missing teeth with durable dental implants. We have trained extensively in dental implant placement and can even place dental implants in a single day.

Our office also is trained to treat your problems like sleep apnea and even jaw pains. It’s rare that dental offices provide so many services under one roof, but we do to give you comfort and convenience.

We’re Using Advanced Technology

Great technology allows us to get precise results and better educate the patients about proper at-home care. We have great chairside technology so we can show you exactly what we’re seeing. The intraoral camera is a device that we use to scan the teeth and gums. It shows us results instantly, and we can see parts of the mouth that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

If you have gum issues, you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable or painful treatments. Gum disease is a serious problem that is also the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It can quickly take over the mouth and cause several of your teeth to fail. If you don’t handle the issue right away, it can destroy the gums and the underlying bone. To help with this issue, we are offering laser dentistry. The laser replaces the need for traditional gum surgery. Instead of using stitches and scalpels to treat the infection, we’re using lasers to evaporate the infection. Laser dentistry is gentle and improves the recovery time of the treatment. We can even use the laser to even out the gums to give you a more uniform smile.

Helping Nervous Patients Relax

Some patients can’t bear the thought of going to the dentist or having their teeth worked on, so they need a little more help to get them in the door or dental chair. That’s why we’re offering sedation options to help patients relax in the dental chair. We have everything from inhaled sedation to stronger IV sedation. With IV sedation we can treat even the most fearful patients or treat several dental issues in one visit.

Keep Your Smile Looking Great
