You know that you should do it, but you haven’t done it in a long time.
For the sake of your oral health and your smile, you should be visiting the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and exams. And yet … you have a hard time doing that.
You may be one of the tens of millions of Americans who live with dental anxiety. And that’s OK.
It’s also why our team at the office of Jennifer Perkins, DDS, does everything that we can to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable at our Huntsville, AL dental office.
That includes a variety of comfort options and sedation dentistry, which we’ll discuss more in today’s post.
In the meantime, you can call 256-801-0002 if you have questions or to schedule your return dental appointment with us.
We Care for People
As dental professionals, our expertise in helping you keep your smiling looking good. But we don’t just care for teeth. We care for and about each individual who visits our practice.
Our team is here for you. Let us know if there is something we can do to help you relax.
We’ll gladly let you use a blanket, pillow, or both, so you can stay cozy during your dental cleaning. If you are thirsty, let us know and we’ll offer you one of our complimentary beverages.
If you prefer a distraction to take your mind off your dental care, we have televisions in our patient rooms so you can watch one of your favorite shows.
Keeping you comfortable can help build trust. Getting to know us can help you feel more at ease getting the oral care that you need and deserve.
A Little Extra May Help, Too
While our comfort options are great for many of our patients, we also know that you might need a little more than that if you have more severe anxiety. If so, our dental sedation might be perfect for you.
Sedation is designed to do two important things for you and your smile. First, it will stop you from feeling pain during your visit. We know that pain is a big concern for many patients with dental anxiety, and this can help you feel confident that you won’t feel anything.
Second, it puts your mind at ease so you can relax. You may even feel like you’ve dozed off, so you might not remember your appointment.
If you do choose dental sedation, however, then you must arrange for someone else to bring you to and from your appointment.
If you have any questions about how sedation could help, please feel free to ask. We want you to have the information you need to make an informed decision.
