The short-term effect of dental anxiety is bad enough; it can cause your hands to sweat and your heart to race. But the long-term impact on your health is worse if you avoid getting the dental care you need. Small problems often become much bigger ones if you skip dental cleanings and similar services. Because our team knows this, we make relieving dental anxiety in Claremore a priority.Doctor Tygran Pahlevanyan on relieving dental anxiety Read Transcript
A lot of times patients are not getting their treatment done because of dental anxiety. That's number one thing that we hear all the time in dentistry. We offer certain services that alleviates the dental anxiety. Certainly the laughing gas, and there's some other different levels of sedation that we can do to put each patient at ease and deliver the dental care that they need.
We have a variety of things that we offer to the patient to make them comfortable. We have pillows, we have stress balls. We have big windows, which provides a lot of natural light and it seems like you're outside. We have a garden in front of the window, which a lot of patients love. We have a lot of turtles in there and pigeons – especially kids love that.
We're definitely a unique office, and having turtles back there makes us even more unique.
We want you to be able to:
- 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
To schedule a stress-free appointment, call 918-921-9583.
