Dental Anxiety is Normal
If you get dental anxiety, we understand your struggle. We have many patients who experience anxiety and stress when they come into our office. If you experience anxiety, our team truly wants to help.
In fact, dental anxiety isn’t strange or abnormal. It’s actually fairly common. Anxiety and fear cause 9 to 15% of Americans to stay home instead of visiting the dentist. As dentists, we hate that so many Americans miss out on proper treatment due to stress.
That’s why we want to help. Here at Advanced Dentistry of Butler, we do everything in our power to make patients feel safe, secure, and at-home. We are proud of the service we provide and we want our patients to be courageous.
Rethinking Dental Anxiety
Over the years, dentistry has improved its technology to give dental access to everyone. Fortunately, this includes people with anxiety and stress. One of the ways we assist patients with anxiety is through sedation dentistry.
When you visit Dr. Fornalczyk at Advanced Dentistry of Butler, we will talk about your specific needs and how we can better assist you. For your comfort, we offer oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. Depending on the amount of anxiety you experience, we will administer sedation therapy accordingly.
A Dental Team You Can Trust
Yes, sedation dentistry helps people overcome their fear of big equipment. But, really, it’s the people who make your dental experience relaxing. Our dentist and dental hygienists are all practiced in calming therapy and ready to help.
When you visit Dr. Fornalczyk and our dental team, you will feel the difference of staff members who care. Each of us at Advanced Dentistry of Butler works here because we want to make lives better. And that’s our hope for you.
