If you require additional help with your smile, make sure you’re regularly visiting your dentist. Our dentist can provide several oral health care procedures to not only repair any damage that has been done but also to set in place various treatments to ensure that you will be less likely to suffer from damage in the future. However, many individuals skip out on going to the dentist due to a condition known as dental anxiety. Dental anxiety affects adults and children alike and occurs when an individual has concerns or worries about visiting their dentist office. If you suffer from dental anxiety, it is important to let your dentist know.
Our dentist will be able to prescribe several different treatments and helpful techniques to ensure that any stress or concerns you feel before a procedure will be alleviated. We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation for our patients with dental anxiety.
So, when you visit our dentist office, be sure to let us know that you have concerns and worries, as often the fear of the unknown plays a key role in dental anxiety. Our dentist can talk to you and walk you through any oral health care procedures you may need along with potential sedatives that can be used to help calm and relax you or even put you to sleep. Through the use of a local anesthetic, an entire procedure can be done before you even wake up.
Our team at Portale Dental looks forward to providing you safe and effective oral health care if you are suffering from dental anxiety. To book an appointment at our dental office in Ridgefield, New Jersey, please contact Dr. Joseph Portale and a member of our caring staff at 201-945-5777.
