Because our team knows this, we make relieving dental anxiety in Claremore a priority. As a result, you will:

  • Get the care you need to keep your teeth and mouth healthy
  • Develop a positive relationship with the dentist
  • Make routine care less stressful
  • Avoid complex and costly procedures

Get to Know Us Before Your First Appointment

For many people, uncertainty of the unknown is a big part of their dental fear. One way we make you feel less anxious is inviting you to come in for a “happy visit” before your first appointment. You can meet your dentist and the rest of our friendly team, check out our comfortable surroundings, and get answers for any questions you have. If you already know us, you’ll feel more relaxed when you come in for an exam!

When you do visit us for dental services, let us know beforehand if you’d like to schedule a longer appointment time. That way, we can take a break or two during your treatment so you feel less overwhelmed.

Stay Calm With Dental Sedation & Comfort Options

You’ll find it easy to remain relaxed in our chair with our comfort options. We even offer you a comfort menu so you can let us know which options you want. You can choose:

  • An eye mask
  • A warm blanket
  • A pillow
  • Lip balm to soothe dry lips
  • Water
  • Yoga props for stress relief

If you’re still nervous, choose from our forms of safe dental sedation: inhaled sedation (laughing gas) or an oral sedative in the form of a pill.

We’re confident we can help in relieving dental anxiety in Claremore! Call us at 918-921-9583 so we can show you how. You can also schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

How common is dental anxiety?

Nearly everyone confesses to feeling distressed at the dentist at least once in a while. A Cleveland Clinic study found that more than 10 percent of Americans avoid the dentist due to anxiety. It’s important to address feelings that lead you to avoid regular hygiene visits. Skipping routine care can result in problems like cavities that are likely to make you feel even more anxious.

Can dental problems cause anxiety?

Due to the fact that they are concerned it will be unpleasant, people often skip treatment for problems like cavities or gum disease. With local anesthesia and the option of dental sedation, however, you should not feel a thing. You’ll need more substantial – and expensive – treatment later to settle the issue if such complications aren’t treated in a prompt manner.

What can I do to relieve dental anxiety?

We urge those with apprehension to come and meet our team during a pressure-free “happy visit.” This gives you the opportunity to check out our relaxed office and get to know us before you receive any treatment. We can also schedule extended appointments so you can take a break if you’d like. You have the option of receiving sedation too.
