I have dental anxiety. How can you help?
Dental anxiety is actually very common, so you're not alone! Dr. Luong and our dental team are experienced in helping anxious patients relax and putting you at ease. Don't let dental anxiety keep you from getting the care you need! Let us help!
We offer pillows and blankets to make you comfortable, music by Pandora, and television and movies through Netflix while you're in the dentist's chair. Many patients find that having music to listen to or their favorite movie to watch helps them relax and makes the appointment seem to go by quickly!
For more extreme cases of dental anxiety, we offer anxiety-free dentistry. We prescribe a mild sedative to be taken approximately an hour before your appointment. This allows you to be relaxed and calm during your dental treatment, but you are still completely conscious and able to respond to the dentist. If you are using this treatment to relieve your dental anxiety, make sure you arrange to have someone drive you to and from your appointment, as the sedative will take a few hours to wear off.
If you have been putting off a visit to the dentist because of anxiety, call our Los Alamitos dental office today to find out more about how we can help.
