I have dental fear. What are my options?

Return to FAQs

Dental fear and anxiety are common, so don't worry. We've treated other people in your situation, and we are skilled at managing dental fear and making your appointments comfortable and safe. 

One great option we have for improving the way fearful patients feel about their dental appointments is nitrous oxide, often known as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide produces a sensation of well-being and, sometimes, euphoria. You don't fall asleep, but you will feel a sense of calm and relaxation. You'll still be fully alert and able to respond to Dr. Narra's questions. 

Nitrous oxide is great for calming fearful patients down enough so that they can manage most general dentistry procedures, including cleanings and examinations. Sensation is dulled, so you don't have to worry about those uncomfortable tickling and buzzing sensations that bother so many patients. 

We also provide a comfortable, calm atmosphere for our patients, making our office a wonderful place for the whole family to get their care, dental anxiety or not! Dr. Narra herself has a calming, friendly personality. Our entire staff is welcoming and will work with you to make sure that your needs are met and you feel comfortable and confident in your dental care. Just let us know what you need so that we can get started helping you!
