Rein In Your Anxiety

At Abundant Smiles, we are well aware of the anxiety that some patients feel about a dental appointment - even if it is only to have their teeth cleaned.  Dr. Jessica in particular understands how nerve-wracking visiting the dentist can be. Her dentist, and fiancee, has made several attempts to get her to find a new dentist (in a joking manner of course) because of the stress she experiences while in the dental chair!

Most dental anxiety is created by anticipation and previous negative experiences. For some people it is the fear of pain, for others it is the factor of embarrassment caused by the poor condition of their teeth or gums.  

We want to be sure you have the best experience possible and want to know about your stresses and anxieties so we can offer solutions to make visiting us more tolerable. We want to know what we can do to make you feel at ease and because of this offer many accommodations for our nervous patients.  

We have the ability in our office to put on your favorite TV show, or play music that helps you feel more relaxed. We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to ease some of the stresses you may experience. If these options are not enough, we can also explore oral sedation to help you feel less anxious before you even have to step foot in our door.

Most patients with dental phobias who visit our office will overcome their fear with time. Having good experiences at the dentist and knowing we care about each of our patients can make visits easier each time!

At Abundant Smiles we care about you, our patients! If you would like to discuss options available for your appointments, please feel free to reach out to us and chat! Call 303-317-6990 or drop us an email at info@abundantsmilesdental.com.
