What Is Dental Phobia?

Dental phobia is the extreme fear of going to the dentist. Dental fear and anxiety can stem from a past negative dental experience, a strong aversion to needles, or another reason strong enough to keep a person from seeking necessary treatment for serious dental problems, such as gum disease, tooth loss, or cavities.

A visit to the dentist need not leave you in a panic! It is important to remember that there have been many advances in dentistry over the last twenty years. From innovations in technology to the increasing use of sedation dentistry, dentists have the tools to painlessly perform your dental procedure. Drs. Frank DiCicco, Joseph Pantaleo, Deepa Rupani and Michael Jaffin focus on sedation dentistry, a technique that uses oral sedatives to put your muscles and your mind into a more relaxed state. Since sedatives induce drowsiness, you will not remember much of the procedure.

It is important that you discuss your dental phobia or fear with our dentists prior to your visit. Drs. Frank DiCicco, Joseph Pantaleo, Deepa Rupani, Michael Jaffin and the rest of the staff at Smilepartnerz are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure to help you lessen your dental fears.
