Dr. Beckham on Relieving Dental Anxiety Read Transcript
I think dental anxiety is one of the biggest things. Just say fear, anxiety is the nice word. Fear is really what it is and people are terrified. I don't care if it's a big strong boy or a tiny little gal, people are terrified of coming to the dentist for a number of different reasons. The chief one is fear. One of the things that we do is we practice oral conscious sedation. What the heck is that? It's a very simple, very, very, very safe medication sequence and combination that we use for our patients. When we use that people will over and over and over again say,
Many of our patients here at Beckham Dental came to us with dental anxiety. It’s a common issue and one that we take very seriously. At our Cave Creek, AZ dentist office, we have invested time and money to make sure you are comfortable and at ease as soon as you walk into our dental office. We have comfort options as well as longer appointments, and. if you need a little more than the natural remedies we offer, we have dental sedation to keep you completely relaxed.
You can get past your dental anxiety, and Cave Creek, AZ dentist at Beckham Dental can help. Call our office today at 602-842-6188 to set up a time to visit.
How We Relieve Your Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety will affect your smile if you don’t take action. Beckham Dental is here to help and support you any way we can to make sure you and your smile get the care you need.
- In-Office Comfort Options – Each day we set out complimentary cookies for you to enjoy. We also offer blankets, pillows for neck and back support, eye protection, and personal fans as well as Bose headphones and TVs to help you relax. Our soothing eucalyptus can do wonders for making you feel calm. And if you’d like, we offer longer appointment times – we will never rush you through.
- Dental Sedation – For our anxious patients, we have nitrous oxide and oral sedation available. Nitrous is a mild, inhaled sedative that gives you a comfortable, slightly euphoric feeling. You will remain conscious but calm during your dental care. Because nitrous takes effect quickly and wears off completely in minutes, you can safely drive yourself to and from your appointment. Oral sedation is stronger and lasts longer, so you may be able to get multiple treatments done in one visit. However, you will need to get a ride home.
- Caring Dental Staff – Our staff is trained to help you feel as comfortable as possible in our dental office. You will be treated just like you were part of our own family. Whatever you need from us, we will do our very best to provide. We truly care about you and want to make sure you get the dental care you deserve.
