We Take Relieving Dental Anxiety in Zanesville Seriously

Dental anxiety can keep you from seeking regular dental care and seeing the dentist only when you’re in pain. Often, that requires the kind of costly and complex treatment that will make you even more anxious. Not only that, but your anxiety may affect how other members of your family feel about the dentist, too. Fortunately, Hawkins Complete Dental Service’s compassionate staff takes relieving dental anxiety in Zanesville seriously. Our gentle care will help you:

  • Catch and treat oral problems early on
  • Gain peace of mind about your oral health
  • Reduce your anxiety about future dental visits
  • Avoid the need for more extensive dental work

Our atmosphere is caring, not clinical. If you’re still feeling anxious despite our warm environment, you can get dental sedation to take the edge off. To put your dental anxiety behind you, call Hawkins Complete Dental Service today at 740-214-1301.

Our Amenities & Dental Sedation Keep You Stress-Free

Dr. Hawkins has been practicing dentistry for more than 25 years. He’s soothed lots of nerves during that time. Patients often remark on his kind and gentle manner. The other members of our team are approachable and understanding, too. We’re always willing to listen to your concerns.

Many experiences seem more pleasant with a cozy blanket. And it’s hard to feel tense or anxious if you’re enjoying a massage in one of our massage chairs! For a welcome distraction, you can even watch TV. These are just some of the ways we make visiting the dentist a fantastic experience for every patient.

Dr. Hawkins is trained in three forms of dental sedation so he can match the appropriate level of sedation to your anxiety. Your choices include:

  • Light sedation, given in a gaseous form
  • Oral sedation, in the form of a powder we place under your tongue
  • IV sedation, the strongest form of sedation, which often leaves you with no memory of your dental procedure

Common Questions About Relieving Dental Anxiety

What is dental anxiety?

Most people feel at least a little bit nervous leading up to their dental appointments. For millions of adults, though, the level of anxiety they feel about dental care is enough to keep them from getting the treatment they need to maintain good oral health. We offer strategies to relieve dental anxiety at Hawkins Complete Dental Service, from cozy comfort amenities to dental sedation, so your appointments are relaxing and enjoyable.

How can I overcome dental anxiety?

We have decades of experience helping anxious patients feel more comfortable and relaxed. Our gentle, compassionate care, as well as our cozy massage chairs and other amenities, make the patient experience in our practice much more like a day at the spa than a visit to the dentist. We also offer inhaled, oral, and IV sedation options to help you feel completely relaxed during your dental treatment.

Is dental sedation effective?

Dental sedation is highly effective, especially when you can choose the method according to your specific comfort needs. Inhaled sedation is a quick, safe way to take the edge off for mildly anxious patients of all ages. Oral sedation can help moderately anxious patients reach a deeper state of relaxation, while severely anxious patients or those who require longer, more complicated dental procedures can opt for the strongest form of sedation administered through an IV.
