Dental Anxiety

June 13, 2019

If you suffer from dental anxiety, a visit to James M. Wells, DDS, PA might seem like a daunting prospect. Perhaps you had a bad experience in the past, but whatever the reason, please know that at our Morehead City, NC office, there is nothing to be afraid of. We understand you may be anxious about receiving dental treatments, and we’re here to help you have a comfortable, pain-free experience that will put your fears to rest. 

 

 

You’re not alone!

 

A 1984 study that appeared in the Journal of the American Dental Association reported that up to 75% of all adults in the United States have some degree of dental anxiety. This includes five to ten percent whose dental anxiety is so severe that they try to avoid a dentist’s office at all costs.

 

Treatment

 

If you experience dental anxiety, it is important to let our office know in advance, so we can provide you with the dental care you need with an added touch of TLC. We can assist by explaining behavioral techniques for relaxation, by administering nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or by prescribing a relaxing medication prior to your dental procedure.
