Solutions for Overcoming Dental Fear
Sisters Dental can help you get the care you need.
Dental Anxiety is Not Uncommon
In fact, it’s very normal to feel some level of anxiety about dental care. If you feel nervous about your dental care, we want you to know that we understand, and making you feel comfortable and safe at our office is our first priority.
Dental anxiety may be mild to moderate, and often takes the form of a general sense of worry and apprehension when thinking about an upcoming procedure. Dental phobia is a more intense experience, with patients feeling an overwhelming fear of dental work which can sometimes cause them to avoid care all together. Either way, we are here to help.

- Calming Techniques:
Many patients find it helpful to practice controlled breathing or to find distraction inside the room. Ask us about some options for distraction we can provide for you!
- Listening to Music:
With most procedures, the use of headphones and music is allowed. This is a great way to keep calm and pass the time while in the chair.
- Oral Sedation:
Depending on the nature of your procedure, various types of sedation may be available to you including oral sedation.

Let us know if you would like to take a short break at any time during your treatment by signaling with your hand.
