Anxiety associated with a fear of the dentist is one of the most common reasons people avoid routine dental care. Dental anxiety is a real condition that affects many people throughout the Treasure Valley. Often times it is the result of a bad experience in the dentist chair. At Summit Dental Group, we want to help our patients feel calm, confident and in control when they receive our Boise dental treatments.
Our Boise dentist understands the struggles of dental anxiety and takes the time to discuss any concerns you may have. Simply talking about it can help put you at ease. Our Boise dentist will also take the time to fully explain any dental procedure while answering any questions you may have. For many, this can help reduce their anxious feelings and enable them to overcome their dental fears.
It’s important to understand the risks of postponing your routine visit with your Boise dentist. Serious negative outcomes can happen when you avoid the dentist. If left untreated, periodontal disease or tooth decay can lead to major problems including tooth loss. Painful toothaches, stained teeth, and bad breath can also result from skipping your routine visits.
At Summit Dental Group, we know patients can be nervous when it comes to visiting the dentist. We are here to help and never judge anyone about their dental anxiety. Our dedicated team of Boise dental professionals will work with you to help you feel calm and relaxed. We will be more than happy to talk with you during a cleaning, let you see any dental instrument, and explain the process of any procedure during your visit before we get started.
