Dental Anxiety is a Common Concern
Dental anxiety is one of the leading reasons people avoid visiting the dentist. Over 40 million Americans suffer from dental fear and put off their care until it’s often too late. This fear my have arisen from a traumatic experience when they were younger, a fear of needles or drills, a dislike of the sights, smells or taste of dental treatments, or even just worry about a big procedure like full arch dental implants. Avoiding the dentist is never a good idea, as problems rarely get better by themselves and will just worsen. Luckily, our New York Area practice features a wide range of sedation options to help you get through your anxious moments and receive the dental care you need to enjoy a happy, healthy smile.
