Three Ways We Can Help Your Dental Anxiety

If you are fearful or anxious about going to the dentist, then you have a lot of company. Conservative estimates are that 9 percent of the population experiences some level of dental anxiety.

Our team in Decatur, AL understands this. It’s why we make patient comfort one of our top priorities. It’s also why we want you to know the things we do to make oral care easier for you.

1. Personal Care

Every patient is different. By getting to know you and your concerns, we can adapt our approach to make your appointments as relaxing as they can be.

2. Technology

We have invested in dental technology. This is so you can enjoy more efficient care (which means less time in a dental chair). In many instances, this also minimizes or eliminates pain from dental procedures.

3. Sedation

When needed, we can provide laughing gas. This fast-acting sedation option helps in two important ways. First, it blocks pain. Second, it induces a calm state of mind.

You can defeat dental anxiety. Start by calling 256-274-8680 or scheduling online to set up an appointment at Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD, Family Dentistry in Decatur, AL.
