Causes of Dental Anxiety

Fear of pain is perhaps the biggest cause of dental anxiety. Other causes include:

  • A prior bad experience at the dentist
  • Embarrassment over the poor condition of your teeth
  • Disliking the lack of control

Three Ways To Beat Dental Anxiety

At Premier Dental, top-notch Bordentown, NJ dentist address all of those concerns in three ways:

  • Patient-focused care
  • Dental procedures that are as painless as possible
  • Comfortable environment

A big part of patient-focused care is thoroughly discussing your treatment plan with you. We never want you to feel you don’t what is going on or end up surprised by an outcome. Trusted Bordentown, NJ dentist Dr. Gopal patiently explains every dental procedure.

We make you comfortable with soft pillows in our care rooms. We also offer TVs and headsets for listening to music, both of which can make your treatment seem to go by more quickly!

We use the latest dental technology to keep our procedures as painless as possible. Some examples:

  • Electronic apex locator, for determining the exact location and length of canals in your teeth during root canals
  • Picasso soft tissue laser, for quickly and easily removing excess gum tissue

Less Nervous With Inhaled Sedation

We also offer dental sedation with inhaled sedation to calm your nerves. We use it because:

  • It is easy and quick to administer. You receive it through a small mask worn over your nose.
  • It is the safest form of dental sedation. It can even be used on children.
  • Its mild euphoria takes effect quickly.
  • It wears off quickly too, so you feel like “yourself” right after your dental procedure and can even drive home.

Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from the Bordentown, NJ dentist. Call Premier Dental at 609-949-5115 to see how stress-free a visit to the dentist can be! Or use our online form.
