I’m Scared of the Dentist

Scared of the Dentist? Our San Antonio, TX Dentist Can Help!

Being scared of the dentist is perfectly normal, but for some patients, it can be more of a phobia! When the thought of dental care keeps you away from the dentist, you’re missing out on critical care that can keep your teeth healthy, which only leads to trouble later on!

At Advanced Dental Associates, we’ve built a practice around helping our patients feel at ease and comfortable with their dental care. We won’t ever shame you for missing appointments or not having been to the dentist in a long time – we’d rather help you move past your fears and enjoy a healthy set of teeth!

Easing Dental Fears With Compassion and Care!

When you’re at the dentist, the last thing you want is a clinical environment that feels cold and uncomfortable. We’ve built our practice to reflect a warm, personal, and compassionate touch that we feel is essential to patient comfort.

When we hire staff, we have the same approach in mind: will this person help make our patients feel comfortable? When you’re at Advanced Dental Associates, you can rest assured you’ll be made to feel at ease.

We also offer several comfort options that can help you relax. Pillows, blankets, and longer appointments are all part of helping you feel at ease – we don’t like rushing our patients out the door! We also have private operatory rooms for your privacy and peace of mind – no room full of dental chairs for us!

Sedation Options For Anxious Patients

If you’re worried that a comfortable environment won’t be enough for you, we can also offer sedation dentistry to help make your visit easier. At the most basic level, we offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help relax you during your procedure. We also have oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, which has amnesic properties, meaning you won’t even remember your procedure!

Sedation dentistry is great for patients who are frightened of the dentist, and all of our sedation levels are safe and highly monitored. You’re in good hands at Advanced Dental Associates – leave the hard work to us!

If you want to discover all that we can do to make your dental care easier, call San Antonio, TX office today at 210-819-5233 or fill out our online contact form. We look forward to helping you have an anxiety-free dentist appointment!
