Dental Anxiety

Discover solutions for dental anxiety on the Central Coast.

Don’t let your dental health suffer due to anxiety. Our friendly dentists at Advance Family Dental Lake Haven want to make your experience with us as pleasant and pain-free as possible.

We are experts at dealing with patients who experience dental anxiety on the Central Coast and will work with you to come up with a solution that will put your mind to rest.

What can you do for my dental anxiety?

Like all good treatments, dealing with your dental anxiety begins with a caring conversation.

We welcome you to discuss your fears with us when you make an appointment at our Central Coast practice. Our dentists will take the time to understand what drives your anxiety and will discuss with you the measures we can take to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

We find that even having a simple signal – like raising your hand when you’d like us to pause treatment – can help the patient to feel like you are in control of the treatment and ease your anxiety.

Are there other options I can choose?

Yes. We also use happy gas to bring you into a state of deep relaxation. This is inhaled via a mask comfortably fitted over your nose and requires no needles or injections of any kind.

The gas is quickly eliminated from the body when the supply is turned off, which makes it a safe and convenient way to keep you calm and relaxed while in the dentist’s chair.
