We Treat Patients with Dental Phobia

Do you get sweaty palms or a nervous stomach while waiting to see the dentist? Do you have a paralyzing fear of the dentist that causes you to cancel your dental appointments time and time again? We can help you at Ora Dentistry. In fact, our Elk Grove practice specializes in treating patients with dental phobia. To ensure we are able to treat patients with varying levels of dental anxiety, our office offers soothing amenities, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.

Dental phobia, or dental anxiety, is a very real condition. In fact, it keeps countless patients from seeing the dentist each year. At Ora Dentistry, we realize that dental anxiety can be a major obstacle to dental care, whether it involves routine visits, restorative work or cosmetic procedures. Your smile deserves professional attention, and we won’t let your dental phobia stand in the way. You’ll find that our office goes above and beyond to create a comfortable, stress-free visit just for you.

Reasons for Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety can present itself in various degrees. It can also originate from a number of different sources or factors. At Ora Dentistry, we help patients who have dental phobia due to the following:

  • Bad dental experience as a child
  • Fear of needles or pain
  • Fear of sights or sounds of the dental office
  • Severe gag reflex
  • Fear of not being in control

Regardless of the cause, sedation dentistry is typically the most effective way to treat patients with dental phobia. Our office offers both oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, depending on your personal preferences and the severity of your anxiety. Both forms of sedation are completely safe and allow you to remain in a fully relaxed state while your smile is tended to.

I've always been afraid of going to the dentist but I had the best dental experience here! The staff is very friendly and helpful and Dr. Dalla was great. He explained the procedures to be done and was gentle when it came to my worst fear at the dentist---numbing shots!!! I didn't feel anything! I'm definitely not afraid to go to the dentist anymore! Thank you Ora Dentistry!

Called to make an apt yesterday, I was so happy they where able to get me In the same day! As soon as you walk in you feel like your being greeted by a friend. The staff and doctor are amazing. Injections where painless and I really felt like I was cared for. I am extremely satisfied with my cleaning! My teeth look pretty amazing!! I give this place a 10/10. I look forward to my next dental visit.

I was impressed the minute I walked into office. Just so tasteful and beautiful. As for the Dr., he took the time to explain and show me the one problem he discovered albeit a big one. I did appreciate the time he took with me and will have no problem making him my dentist from now on.
