      What is Dental Anxiety?

      Dental anxiety is more common than you think. For children and adults who suffer from dental anxiety, a routine trip to the dentist can be an overwhelmingly frightening experience. For some, even the idea of being on a dental chair or even just the sight of anything related to dentistry can bring them anxiety.

      Let us help you with Dental Anxiety

      At Battery Hill Dental, we deal with children and adult patients who have dental anxiety and fear. With our expertise in managing and treating dental anxiety, we were able to successfully treat their dental problems safely and painlessly.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        How Do I Know if I Have Dental Anxiety?

        You may have dental anxiety when you can relate to the following:
        •Severe discomfort in any dental-related situation
        •Feeling helpless about dental problems such as toothaches
        •You had a painful and negative experience in the past when you visited your dentist
        •You’ve heard scary anecdotes from other people that made you feel scared
        •You have a sense of embarrassment about your dental condition
        •You fear a sense of depersonalization that scares you, especially when you see a dentist in a mask
        •You’ve been deeply disturbed by the portrayals of dentists in the media, which you find scary
        •You’re simply afraid that something bad will happen
        •You have a general fear of getting hurt

        Can dental anxiety be overcome for good?

        Some can, but some can only be managed. These strategies can help you allay your fears and anxiety:
        •Talk to your dentist about your fears
        •When you’re on the chair and can’t talk, express yourself with your hands
        •Distract yourself with sights and sounds, or even music
        •Take a break if necessary
        •Develop relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga

        What can I expect after taking sedatives?

        Taking dental sedation can have effects that will last for a few hours. This will make you so relaxed you won't be in your right mind, and you won't be able to drive or operate machinery for the day.
