Many people avoid going to the dentist, even if it means damaging their oral health. Dr. Lindahl, your caring dentist in Maryville TN offers the solution to that aversion to dental visits. How? By means of relaxation dentistry. It addresses the concerns and fears that most patients have and helps keep them to a minimum. For example, what makes people stay away from the dentist?
1. Sensitive gag reflex.
2. A bad dental experience in the past.
3. Concern about the pain involved, and perhaps the amount of time required with your mouth wide open.
4. Fear of needles, dental drills, along with the various sounds and smells associated with dental offices.
All of these concerns and dental phobias can be alleviated though relaxation dentistry and result in a calm, relaxed, and safe environment for the patient. This is done by means of oral relaxation methods, along with the safe use of nitrous oxide, and if required, anti-anxiety or tranquilizing drugs.
The results? Necessary dental procedures can be carried out without the fear, stress and anxiety that many associate with the dentist. In fact, a visit of several hours at our office can feel like just a few short minutes to you as a patient.
