Anxiety or fear around dental appointments is very common. Our Mississauga dentists provide a relaxing dental experience to help our patients get the care they need with a minimum of stress.
Dental Anxiety & Your Oral Health
For some people, dental anxiety can become almost debilitating, making it difficult or even impossible for them to get the preventive or restorative dental care they need. While this is understandable, regular dental care is essential for preventing oral disease and the need for more complex treatments. It should therefore not be avoided.
How We Help
At Southcommon Dental, we do everything we can to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed when they visit us.
Prepare & Plan
Ahead of your appointment we encourage you to talk to us about your fears and concerns so that we can establish a plan to help you manage your anxiety during the dental procedure.
On the day of your appointment, we will talk to you ahead of time to ensure that you're feeling alright, and do what we can to allay your fears.
During your procedure itself, we will work at your pace, answer your questions and explain what is happening, and take breaks if you need them. Whatever you need, we're here for you.
If your dental anxiety can't be managed through the steps above, we also offer a range of sedation options to help you relax.
