What is Dental Phobia

Dental phobia is the serious, often paralyzing, fear of dental care and is not as uncommon as many people think. An estimated 9-15% of all Americans avoid much-needed care because of dental anxiety and fear. This means 30-40 million Americans are so afraid of dental treatment that they avoid it altogether.

We have determined that gradual exposure to the dental process in a welcoming, relaxing environment is the best way to defuse your fears and anxieties.

Decay Prevention

Caries (tooth decay) is the technical term for the bacterial infection that causes cavities. Our office is now certified in CAMBRA (Caries Management By Risk Assessment), a completely preventive approach to minimize decay in your mouth. We can perform a risk assessment that includes the use of equipment that evaluates your particular dental plaque for decay causing potential. We can now measure and quantify your particular level of decay-producing organisms! This test takes only 15 seconds to perform.
