If you are afraid of your dentist, you are not alone. Far from it! At Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, we frequently encounter dental anxiety. How do we calm the fears of these patients, deliver the care they need, and provide a comfortable dental environment?
1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended treatment. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including sedation dentistry. This allows our dentistry patients to make educated decisions about their oral health and necessary dental care.
2) At Kernagis Dental Excellence, we practice gentle, pain-free dentistry. Dental treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.
Speak up promptly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer an additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. We never rush dental procedures.
3) We provide many in-office amenities at Kernagis Dental Excellence which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during dental treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sleep dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.
At Kernagis Dental Excellence, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
