Overcome Dental Anxiety In Fredericksburg, VA

Overcome Dental Anxiety In Fredericksburg, VA

Welcome back to our dentistry blog! We hope that you’ve had had a safe and happy new year so far! We hope to see you soon at our office on Pelham Street, so, don’t forget to get your 2016 appointments on the calendar!

If it has been awhile since you have been to the dentist’s office, we promise to go easy on you! Here at Moss, we make it our mission to create pain-free and easy dental solutions for the families of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Perhaps you think that you are not like everyone else, when it comes to dentists and doctor-types. It could be that one of your biggest fears is centered around medical offices. Rest assured, this condition is serious, though not at all uncommon, and it even has a clinical name: dental anxiety (extreme cases are known as dental phobia).

Such anxiety often stems from a horrific dental experience in the past, but it can also be related to a more general fear of confronting the unknown reality of your current health issues. truth be told, it doesn’t matter what is causing you to feel that fear. What matters is finding a way to get the care you need, in spite of the obstacles in your way.

It only make sense that, if you are afflicted with dental anxiety, it can be a real problem for you. For one thing, you will likely avoid the cleanings that keep cavities and disease on the run.

You will also miss out on the thorough dental exams that tell us if anything has gone awry in your mouth, or elsewhere. You will not find out about emerging issues like decay, periodontal disease, and even cancer until they have become serious concerns that involve more pain and expense to treat.

Whatever level of fear or anxiety you are dealing with, it doesn’t have to get in the way of your health, at least not at Moss. We’ll meet you where you are, and then take you where you need to go, in a gentle manner.

Day by day, we try to systematically address dental phobia by the way we conduct ourselves and the way we treat others.

Treating Dental Anxiety At Moss

No matter what sort of horrific encounters you’ve suffered through with previous dentists, we can give you a better experience moving forward. There are some things that we do here that truly set us apart from our peers.

Communication Is Key

When you are in our care, we will we explain your treatment and outline exactly what you can expect. We will also make sure you understand, listening all the while to your questions and concerns.

In our office, we feel that you should be well-informed and in control of your oral health decisions. As such, we want to know how we can better serve you.

Gentle Dental Care Is What We Do Best

We take our time with each and every patient to ensure that we do the best job possible, and that you have a positive, pain-free experience, no matter what sort of procedure you receive.

A Relaxed Environment

You probably already know that, at Moss, we are led by a father-son dentist duo. So, we truly are a family practice. As such, we try to make our facility feel like home, rather than a sterile medical center. We’ve been told that this is very much what it feels like. With low lighting, blankets, and TVs in each suite, we like to make sure you feel at ease.

Keep in mind that, if you should ever need anything additional to make you more comfortable, we will take care of it.

We Offer Sedation Dentistry

Don’t be embarrassed if you need a little something extra to relax. We know that some folks need more help letting down their guard than others. That is why we offer several types of sedation dentistry to help you get through your visit.
