Dealing with anxiety in the dentist’s office can seem like its own challenge. Older patients in particular may face difficulties with the dentist, as they remember a time when anesthetics weren’t as effective, or widely offered, as they are today. Procedures were, by and large, more painful, more invasive, and far less forgiving for even the most minor dental problems. It’s completely understandable that so many have dental anxiety, but it’s not reflective of what the current dental health industry can provide for patients.
Modern dentistry has taken the challenge of providing a better level of patient experience, and exceeded expectations by leaps and bounds. The modern dentist is equipped to deal with patients of every age and background. Dr. Thompson and the staff here at our Murfreesboro, TN office know that you may have questions or concerns about your dental care, and your dental health future. That’s why we offer some of the very best sedation therapy and pain management options in the 37129 area of Rutherford County, Tennessee.
With our sedation therapy, we offer patients:
Our sedation therapies include solutions such as relaxing gas which can be used during a procedure, consultations on how to deal with long term dental anxiety, and even alternative treatments that we can use for patients who are particularly adverse to the traditional dental procedure. Whether you experience slight anxiety before a dentist visit, or you’ve got a life long fear of dental procedures, we’re both understanding and welcoming in our pursuit of helping patients find a better standard of treatment and compassion. We’re even trained to handle the dental anxiety that younger, first time patients may have. To learn more, contact our offices for a consultation.
