Dental Anxiety Boston


Patients suffering from dental anxiety have nothing to be ashamed of. For whatever reason, many patients experience heightened nerves when they visit the dentist, and we are happy to provide them dental sedation options that create a more peaceful experience. We offer both IV sedation and nitrous oxide options for our patients, so they have little to no memory of their treatments.

When we have patients that are nervous, with anxiety, or a little fearful, we have options for these patients in that we offer IV sedation and nitrous oxide sedation, which most practices don't offer under one setting with multiple specialists. What I have found over time is those patients need more time to be dealt with and talked to. I've had patients come into the office pouring in sweat; almost not able to verbalize how they feel. What I try to do is to make some contact with them, some comfort with them. Patients that can't be treated any other way, over time become comfortable and trust us. Before you know it, they're not required to have IV sedation or nitrous oxide, except for certain procedures. They're able to have maybe one procedure with IV sedation, another one with nitrous, another one without. Over time as their anxiety decreases, they're able to eliminate these more expensive forms of sedation. We've had great success with our patients.
