Did you know nearly 75% of adults in the U.S. have some fear of going to the dentist? In fact, fear of the dentist is so common that there are two names for it—odontophobia and dentophobia!
There are many reasons behind a fear of the dentist in Holland:
If you’ve visited our dental office in Holland, you already know we make sure you’re comfortable and taken care of here. We have blankets and memory foam pillows, and you can listen to music if you like.
If you do experience anxiety, we can help you relax with sedation dentistry—by using nitrous oxide (laughing gas). In about 30 seconds, you’re completely relaxed and in a blissful, comfortable state. Once your treatment is finished, we’ll give you pure oxygen. You’ll be revived and awake in no time. In just a few minutes, you’ll be able to drive yourself home; it’s that easy! We also have several types of local anesthesia we can use depending on what treatment you’re having. Being relaxed will help the anesthesia do its job, and being pain-free will make you feel that much more relaxed!
If you have fear of the dentist, relax and call our Holland dental office at 616.396.5919. We’re here to help!
