There are a lot of patients who have fear, anxiety that come to the dentist; it's not uncommon. Our office strives to take away those fears just by the environment that we provide. We feel that our office is a very caring environment to come to the dentist. And when you do need procedures done, we have ways to reduce that anxiety.
We do sedation in our office, and we do have a device that's called the STA. It delivers anesthetic very slowly to the tooth and almost painlessly, really. So patients who have had the STA given to them say that they didn't feel a single thing.
And sometimes that shot or the fact that patients are thinking about needles is what's creating that anxiety. Once they get past that, they're typically okay. But we have the means to sedate if we need to and create a less anxiety situation for a patient so that they are comfortable when they come into the office and they leave comfortable as well.

At Pierce & Knight Family Dentistry, we understand how debilitating dental fear can be. If the thought of being in a dental chair scares you, getting your teeth cleaned or having a tooth filled can be a completely overwhelming experience.
