Dental anxiety is a very real thing for many people. While a fear of the dentist can be common, it can also keep you from getting the care your smile and your body needs, and can result in serious problems later on. To avoid those problems you need to get past your dental anxiety.

To help with this, we offer various forms of sedation dentistry to help you keep comfortable during your treatment, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation. But that’s not all! We also invite you to employ the following techniques to help you relax during your treatment.

So the first step in getting past your fear is to have a talk with our me and my staff. In addition to offering dental sedation, we understand that many people have dental anxiety and are happy to help you work past it.

It may help for you learn more about what will happen during your appointment. Taking some of the mystery out of your appointment can make your visit easier. You can also arrange for a signal you can give us just in case you start to feel overwhelmed and need a break for a few minutes. Of course, you can also bring your phone and earbuds to enjoy your favorite music, book-on-tape, or podcast to take your mind off things.

Don’t let your dental anxiety in Haymarket, Virginia keep you from seeing the dentist. At Awesome Smiles Dental Center we understand that some people feel uncomfortable about their visits, and we’re here to help. Call 571-261-2600 today to schedule your appointment.
