Overcoming Dental Anxiety In Central Connecticut

Overcoming Dental Anxiety In Central Connecticut

  • August 13, 2017

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you may want to hide out rather than coming to our Plainville dentist’s office. Such a strategy make you feel better in the short run. But you won’t be doing yourself any long-term favors. That’s because at Gentle Dental Care, we have the tools, training, and technology required to keep you smiling through every stage of life. And by avoiding us, you are only putting yourself at more risk for health problems, and not just in your mouth. Keep reading to hear more about what we can do to fight your fears and help you overcome your dental anxiety (sedation is definitely part of the plan), then be sure to contact us to get started!

A Healthy Smile Takes More Than You Can Do At Home

It’s true that you can brush your teeth every day at home and you can floss and rinse and all that other good stuff. But you will still be lacking the additional care you need from folks whose eyes are well-trained. Our professional teeth cleanings can build on your good work at home and further rid your mouth of any lingering bacteria, tartar, and plaque that would otherwise cause some real problems for you.

What’s more, having an exam every six months or so will help us stay on top of any issues that might be unfolding in your mouth. After all, you wouldn’t want to let anything like oral cancer take hold.

Better Memories Await

It is time to find a new home for all your dental needs. If you have had a bad experience in the past, we want to make amazing new memories for you. And that starts from the first time you call us on the phone. We make a real effort to be friendly because most anxiety is rooted in bad experiences. There are many comfort options available as well. But compassion is only part of what we offer.

Sedation Dentistry

At Gentle Dental Care we are serious about restoring your oral health no matter how long you’ve been away from the dentist. Creating new memories by providing gentle, pain-free dental experiences for our patients is our top priority.

Please let us know how we can help put you at ease. We have nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation available to the right candidates. You won’t find that at every area dental office. Dr. Peltzer has gone to great lengths to become certified in these deeper level techniques. Sedation is perfect for alleviating fear, and for helping you sit still, and allowing you to receive multiple procedures all during the same visit.

Let’s Get Started!

We hope that you have inspired to take back the health and appearance of your smile. All you have to do now is contact our Plainville, CT dental team today to schedule your next appointment. Dr. Peltzer will make sure that you have a great experience every time you pass through our doors.
