Do you avoid visiting the dentist out of anxiety and fear?
Visiting the dentist can be a difficult and stressful experience for many patients. Some patients may even avoid scheduling their routine oral exams because of their dental anxiety.
If you struggle with a fear of the dentist, you are not alone, and at the office of Rogers dentist Dr. Heather Adams, we understand. We strive to provide our patients with the most comfortable and welcoming environment where patients feel at home. Through patient educations and relationship-based dentistry, Dr. Heather Adams helps patients understand and find ways to overcome their dental anxiety.
Solutions for Dental Anxiety in Rogers, AR
We provide individualized treatment plans and take the time to get to know our patients. Our one-on-one dental health exams include a personal consultation with Dr. Adams where she will listen to your concerns, cosmetic goals, and answer any questions you may have about your oral health.
Dr. Adams will explain all the necessary treatments so that you have a thorough understanding of what you will experience. We empower our patients so that they can make informed decisions about their oral health.
For patients who have had a negative past experience, or experience dental anxiety that prevents them from visiting the dentist, Dr. Adams offers sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry can help patients to feel completely calm and relaxed during their visit to our dentist’s office. Patients remain alert but will have little to no memory of their time spent in the dentist’s chair.
We offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to patients. Nitrous oxide is a gas administered through a mask that provides pain-free treatment for patients as soon as it is used. As soon as we remove the mask, the gas no longer takes effect. For oral conscious sedation, patients take a pill before treatment.
Patients will remain conscious but feel totally relaxed during their dental procedure. We can use these treatment methods for complex dental surgeries or routine examinations, depending on the patient’s comfort or anxiety level. Our dentists want patients of all ages to feel comfortable and welcomed when they visit our office.
