Dental anxiety is an anxious feeling many patients have while in the dental chair. When left untreated, this fear of dental work, and even dental cleanings, can cause distress and the desire to skip essential dental appointments. Urbandale Smiles offers calming dental anxiety treatments that help you enjoy each and every visit.
Some of the common causes of dental anxiety are:
If you have a fear of going to the dentist, you’re not alone, as 40 million Americans are at risk of severe oral health problems because of dental anxiety.
The main benefits of treating dental anxiety in patients of all ages are enjoyable dental visits, less stress, an easier time sitting still, and a higher likelihood of scheduling and attending dental exams. Skipped dental cleanings increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Seeing your dentist at least every six months allows them to detect possible oral health problems early, when dental issues are easier to treat.
Urbandale Smiles offers highly effective dental anxiety treatments to ease fears and help you relax. The practice uses NuCalm®, an advanced clinical system that reduces stress and fear naturally after just a few minutes.
NuCalm is entirely drug-free and uses your body’s own relaxation mechanisms. Your provider places a painless biosignal processing disc on your wrist and gives you a light-blocking mask to wear on your eyes, as well as earphones that allow you to listen to a soundtrack. The soundtrack enhances brain wave functioning and puts you in a state of relaxation.
Simply relax with the eye mask and earphones in a comfortable chair during dental visits to Urbandale Smiles. You can use NuCalm during any dental appointment, even if it’s just to have your teeth cleaned.
NuCalm has no side effects, and there is no downtime needed afterward. It’s inexpensive and included in the cost of each dental treatment at Urbandale Smiles.
