Causes of Dental Anxiety

FEBRUARY SPECIAL: FREE SEDATION – We now are offering free sedation to new patients. Some restrictions apply.  To learn more, please call our dental office and mention “Free Sedation Offer,” (303) 323-8149.

At Meadows Dental Group in Lone Tree, we’ve helped patients with all types of dental anxiety, ranging from mild to severe dental anxiety, including dental phobia issues.

The major causes of both dental anxiety and dental phobia can include:
•had a bad experience at the dentist
•fear of pain at the dentist because of previous traumatic experience
•panic attacks
general anxiety
severe gag reflexes or TMJ
•fear of loss of control
•post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
•low or no pain tolerance
•fear of shots / needles
•adverse reaction to Novocain
trouble getting numb

Everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile. Depending on your level of dental anxiety, we will recommend options such as laughing gas, oral sedation, or IV sedation to help you comfortably move forward with your dental treatment.

Have you had a bad experience at a dental office? How long has it been since your last appointment?  We get it and we understand!  We’d love to help correct that, by offering comprehensive dental treatment, in a comfortable, safe environment.

We can perform dental emergencies, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry (fillings, onlays, inlays, crowns, and bridges), implants, root canals, gum disease treatment, extractions and more.

Need a basic cleaning?  Our gentle dentistry approach will ease your fears there too.  A sedation method as gentle as laughing gas can be used for dental cleanings.  The importance of regular dental visits is key to your dental and overall health.  We look forward to supporting you no matter what your level of dental needs.

Contact us for additional information on how we can help you feel less nervous about sedation and for tips on overcoming dental anxiety.
