What Is Dental Anxiety?

Dental anxiety is a common issue preventing routine oral care, triggered by dental settings or items like drills. It stems from factors like past traumatic experiences or fear of pain, necessitating treatment for proper dental care. It can be caused by factors including:
  • A previous traumatic health or dental experience.
  • Generalized anxiety or other mental illnesses.
  • A fear of losing control.
  • A history of trauma.
For severe anxiety, collaboration between your dentist and a mental health professional may be necessary. At Fairhope Bay Dental, Dr. Avery offers sedation dentistry to help patients relax during procedures

Oral Sedation As A Tool.

We offer oral sedation to soothe patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety. This method involves taking a pill that induces drowsiness. While most remain awake during sedation, some may briefly fall asleep, easily awakened with a gentle shake if needed.

Oral sedation ensures you’re relaxed during your dental appointment, allowing you to maintain proper oral health despite any anxieties.

Kind, Compassionate Dental Care.

Dr. Avery and his team specialize in helping anxious patients feel comfortable. With their expertise and a friendly environment, they ensure you feel at ease during your visit.

Plus, the office therapy dog, Cappie, adds an extra layer of comfort.
