Overcome Your Dental Fears
Are you scared of the dentist? Well, you are not the only one. Many people just like you avoid calling their dentists simply because sitting on the dental chair and staring at the drills most dentists use makes them feel uncomfortable or actually scared of the dentist. Your fear of the dentist may come from a traumatic childhood dentist visit, or you may have “inherited” dental fears from dental horror stories experienced by your family or friends. Regardless of its origin, your dentist phobia is an emotional reaction that we can help you cure.
It is important for you to eventually seek help to overcome your dentist fear. The more you fear the dentist, the less likely you are to go and visit for a regular dental checkup. What happens then? Well, dental problems are not detected until it is too late and you are already suffering from a massive toothache. Of course, you are then forced to gather your courage and call your dentist. Therefore, not addressing your dental fears can lead to extreme paid and result in additional costs that could have been avoided with regular checkups.
Do you recall when was the last time you tried to overcome your dentist anxiety and visited the dentist? If it was 6 months ago, very good. However, if you cannot even remember when you last dental checkup was, then perhaps it is time for you to visit Enchanting Dentistry.

- Painless Anesthesia
If you fear dental injections, you are not alone. Reports indicate that 55% of all dental patients experience some level of stress when thinking about dental injections. Here at Enchanting Dentistry, most of our patients don’t even realize that they’ve had an injection! Our gentle dentists use a variety of techniques to relax you and distract your mind, in combination with a special instrument called VibraJect. The Vibraject is an effective system that improves the patient’s dental experience for those with a lower pain tolerance.
- Pill Sedation Dentistry
We are proud to offer oral sedation dentistry techniques to our patients who prefer to be in a more relaxed state when they are receiving dental care. This sedation dentistry technique is administered by an authorized dentist, and will help you enter a sleep-like state during your dental procedure. While you are catching up on your ZZZs, our dentists will do all the work necessary to make sure that your teeth are healthy.
- Nitrous Relaxing Gas
Otherwise known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe sedation dentistry technique that can help you overcome any anxieties you are experiencing. Even though you will be awake for the entire treatment, laughing gas does exactly what its name suggests – helping you feel completely relaxed.
- Relaxation / Meditation Methods
If you are concerned about using sedation pills to help you sleep and relax during treatment, we offer more natural approaches. One of the common causes of anxiety for dental patients is actually just the noise of the dental equipment. We have addressed that by using silent electric handpieces and laser dentistry tools, rather than noisy drills, when possible.
We also offer noise-cancelling headphones that play relaxing music and recordings.
- EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques
For most people, the fear of the dentist is not induced by something physical but something emotional. Hence, it must also be addressed in such a manner. We now offer effective EFT, also called Emotional Freedom Techniques, to those who want to shed all those emotional baggage causing them to be scared of the dentist. In more extreme cases, we even partner with a certified hypnotherapist to help patients completely eliminate their fear of the dentist.
