What Is Dental Phobia?

At NYC Smile Spa, we specialize in treating patients who suffer from dental phobia, a serious, often paralyzing, fear of visiting the dentist. Many people who struggle with dental phobias stop visiting the dentist altogether and often end up developing serious issues with their oral health. Eventually, this can lead to problems with eating and living everyday life. Postponing routine dental care and necessary treatments can lead to more complex dental problems and the need for additional treatments. This is not ideal for someone who suffers from dental anxiety. It can become a vicious cycle.

Behavioral Approach To Treating Dental Fears And Phobias Versus Sedation

At NYC Smile Spa, we are passionate about helping our patients overcome their fears and phobias about receiving dental care. We know that there are patients who have avoided receiving care for many years due to their feelings. To help patients get the care they need, many dentists in the US have been trained to deal with fearful and phobic patients by providing various forms of sedation. We have a different and unique approach that Dr. Krochak explains further. Click here to watch the short video where Dr. Krochak explains his belief in choosing a behavioral approach over sedation.
