I Have An Uncontrollable Fear of The Dentist. What Should I Do?

In our West Chester dental practice we understand fear and the apprehension about going to the dentist. Dental fear due to traumatic childhood experiences or bad dental experiences at any age is a real thing. If you have been avoiding going to the dentist due to uncontrollable fear, the first step is to call our practice for a low stress, no fear, no charge dental consultation.  If going to the office seems beyond your comfort zone, Dr. Briglia would be happy to give you a call to speak with you over the phone regarding your concerns. We find that some patients are too apprehensive about visiting a dental office, but a call from Dr. Briglia gives patients a chance to “test the waters” and put their minds at ease.

We have helped thousands of patients over the last 30 years and have vast experience in providing patients with pain-free, relaxed dental care.  We offer a no charge consultation appointment to get to know you and start to understand your fear about coming to the dentist. We offer sedation dentistry, and may discover during your consultation that you might prefer to have some level of sedation to complete your care.

When it comes to pain concerns, you can be assured of pain-free numbing because we always use a very strong topical numbing gel to be certain that you do not feel anything.  To make you even more comfortable, we can provide nitrous oxide “relaxing air” and oral or IV sedation. Dr. Briglia can provide these sedation services for root canals, dental implants, periodontal surgery, and more.

If you have a lot of dental needs, you can have several treatments completed in just a few sedation appointments.  Our sedation fees are very reasonable and all treatment and financial arrangements are reviewed and agreed upon before starting any dental treatment.  Your treatment can be predetermined with your insurance company, and your care can be phased over time to make quality care more affordable.

The first step in overcoming your uncontrollable fear of the dentist is to call us or schedule an appointment to set-up a no charge consultation to review your dental options.
