Welcome to Lifetime Dental Care in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where we offer sedation dentistry for our patients experiencing dental anxiety. Dental anxiety is a recognized psychological condition that an individual can experience during even the simplest of dental procedures. Here at Lifetime Dental Care, we have seen many patients over the years, and some of those patients have struggled with dental anxiety. We offer key considerations to help people with dental anxiety feel more at ease.
First, please feel free to let us know if you have dental anxiety. This will help us be prepared to take a little extra time to answer your questions and help you ease your fears. Many of our patients struggling with dental anxiety relate it to feeling of the loss of control over their own body. By asking a few basic questions at the start of the appointment might help you feel better prepared. For many people, understanding the details of the procedure helps them feel empowered.
Yet, other people might experience dental anxiety because they feel that the mouth is an intimate part of the body. If you happen to feel this way, it’s important to remember that all of the members working on our team are highly trained oral healthcare professionals. Each and every one of us is passionate about providing you with the highest level of oral healthcare.
Some people are put to ease by breathing nitrous oxide, or taking oral medication to feel calm and relaxed. If this is an option you would like to explore, please feel free to ask your dentist, Dr. Anthony Butchert, or hygienist how we can help.
If you have issues with dental anxiety in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and you would like to explore your options before your appointment, please feel free to call Lifetime Dental Care at 715-552-1000 and talk to a member of our dental team today!
