Relieving Dental Anxiety The CDA Way
Cosmetic Dental Associates uses only the mildest form of dental sedation, local anesthetic, to numb the site of treatment. To put you at ease – instead of knocking you out with more intense forms of sedation – our successful method of treatment is to:
- Listen to all your questions and concerns
- Book longer appointment times so we can move at your pace
- Make you knowledgeable about the procedure we’re performing
- Use skill and a gentle touch to minimize discomfort
We’ll also book you a private room and provide comfort options like cozy blankets to make you feel at home in our dental chair. Every member of our team is focused on providing you with a calming, soothing experience.
Treating Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety is an intense fear of the dentist. It could be caused by a past negative experience at a dental office, a fear of loss of control, fear of pain, or embarrassment about dental treatment. Dental anxiety often causes patients to go without the dental care they need until they’re experiencing a dental emergency. Let us help you overcome your dental anxiety so you can get the preventive dental treatment you need.
