Your smile may be incredibly important to you, and yet you find yourself avoiding the dentist. Dental anxiety can limit the satisfaction and confidence you feel when you smile and speak with others. It can also keep you from enjoying the fullest extent and duration of oral health, which you deserve. The thing is, a healthy smile is not an accident. To make progress in overcoming dental anxiety and to improve or maintain a healthy smile – you need to see your dentist. We can help make your dental visit a comforting experience. In our New York City office for sedation dentistry, we have amassed the services our patients’ need to comprehensively address matters of oral health.
What is comprehensive dentistry?
Maybe you grew up seeing a family dentist for checkups and cleanings. Until recently, dental care didn’t extend much beyond this standard. Now, the dental field is capable of answering the demand for optimal oral health, personal care that promotes trust and comfort, efficient cosmetic services, and convenience. This may be hard to find in one office unless that office prioritizes comprehensive care; but it’s not all about services, either.
One of the most valuable aspects of obtaining the majority of dental services in one office is the familiarity that is gained between dentist and patient. Every dental checkup and cleaning that is performed by our experienced team is done so with complete care for the whole individual, not just for the mouth. We get to know our patients, their oral health needs, medical conditions that may affect oral health, lifestyle habits, personal preferences for dental care, and more. We do this because we are aware of the prevalence of dental anxiety and are committed to helping our patients find their way through this obstacle.
We have found that patients who feel more comfortable with dentistry can participate in their dental care both in and out of the office more freely. They can connect the dots between their oral health and their total level of daily comfort and their overall quality of life. As a result, they become the most valuable member of the oral care team.
