Do you suffer from dental fear or anxiety? Dental anxiety can be an obstacle that prevents patients from seeking the dental care they need to maintain their oral health. Fear of the dentist is one of the leading concerns patients give for not visiting the dentist on a regular basis. However, patients who avoid regular dental exams run a much greater risk of developing more complex oral health concerns due to a lack of preventative care. A continuous cycle of fear and anxiety can make it difficult for patients to return to the dentist out of fear or embarrassment.
Compassionate Dental Care
Dr. Paul Cavanaugh and his Colorado Springs, CO dental team provide patients with a comfortable and relaxing dentist office experience. Our welcoming, highly trained dentists are dedicated to creating a no-pressure dentist office environment built on open communication. We encourage patients to ask questions, and we take the time to listen to you, answer your questions, and work with you to build a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. When our patients feel comfortable with us, it helps reduce their anxiety and increase their confidence in our care.
We provide nitrous oxide as an option for patients who are anxious about undergoing dental procedures. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled via a tiny cannula placed beneath your nose. This solution has the added benefit of taking effect and wearing off almost immediately which makes it possible for patients to drive themselves home after their visit. By offering sedation dentistry our dentists can help patients with dental fear or anxiety as well as those who require extensive dental procedures and multiple treatments. Patients feel relaxed and calm when nitrous oxide is used.
