Helping Dental Anxiety - Bethlehem Town Family Dental
Helping Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety (fear of the dentist) is incredibly common. Are you among the one in seven people estimated to avoid necessary dental treatment because of dental fear and anxiety? You’re in luck! Our office excels with anxious patients. They’ve said so themselves, and we encourage you to check out our 5 star reviews on Demandforce, Google, Yelp, and Facebook. Here’s how we help. Have you ever felt like you couldn’t communicate with your dentist? Whether they only spoke in dental jargon or you felt like your concerns weren’t being heard, you don’t have to worry about that at Bethlehem Town Family Dental. We take the time to listen to your concerns and offer you our honest opinion. You don’t have to worry about sales pitches or other uncomfortable tactics during your care. We’ll discuss your needs and your goals with you and make sure you are 100% on board before we begin any treatment.
Do you feel like you need a little extra help to feel comfortable and confident? We’ve got your back. Just say the word, and we can provide nitrous oxide gas (often referred to as “laughing gas”) to help you relax and feel more comfortable. Nitrous oxide offers light, safe sedation – in fact, nitrous oxide is even safe enough for children! Better yet, it takes effect almost instantly and the effect dissipates moments after we remove the mask. This means that you can safely drive yourself to and from your appointment. For more information about nitrous oxide and other ways we help anxious patients, please call our Glenmont, NY dental office today and request a consultation with Dr. Henry Huang!
