3 Ways to Stay Comfortable at The Dentist

Sometimes just the thought of going to the dentist sends a shiver down a person’s spine. Every dentist is going to experience fearful dental patients. Our Wellesley MA dental office has seen its fair share of terrified patients and will continue to see patients who struggle with dental anxiety.

Dental fear is an epidemic in America. It’s estimated that about 20 percent of Americans struggle with dental fear, and about 5 perfect of that population will avoid the dentist at all costs. Tocci Dental Associates is a comprehensive family dental office that uses the latest technology and techniques to give you comfortable care. We can resolve your dental anxiety in a number of ways.

You can give us a call today at 781-304-8172 to book your first visit with us. We take pride in treating children and adults, through education and advanced procedures. Today we want to show you three ways we can handle your dental anxiety.

1. Advanced training and dental care

Tocci Dental Associates has been caring for patients for decades. Dr. Tocci has been a dentist for more than 30 years, and he’s never stopped learning. He has undergone extensive continuing education at Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Additionally, many of our dental professionals have been with us for decades and have stayed on the cutting edge of dentistry. In additional to our great general dental care, we have trained to offer advanced solutions like dental implants for missing teeth.

Each of our patients can take comfort knowing that we can handle a wide array of dental treatments. So you won’t have to travel all around town to get the care you need.

2. Same-day smile solutions

Dental anxiety can often arise from the prospect of dental treatment. Or maybe you’ll set up a procedure and become overwhelmed and scared away by the shear volume of visits. That’s why our office has same-day solutions to make your treatments quick and affordable. We can resolve some of the most severe dental problems in one day, including replacing failing teeth and placing dental implants.

We’ve found that making treatments available and fast help patients feel more at ease.

3. Safe, soothing sedation dentistry

If you struggle to get comfortable in the dental chair, or even enter the dental office, ask us about our sedation dentistry. We use inhaled sedation in the office for patients who are fearful of the procedures or simply nervous about their visits. Inhaled sedation, you known is as laughing gas, calms your nerves, which is better for you and the doctor. Additionally, this treatment is extremely safe and wears off quickly, so you can drive home immediately after your visit with us.

Tocci Dental Associates is design to meet your every dental need. If you have questions about our treatments or need to find a great dentist, give us a call today at 781-304-8172 to book your first visit. We can’t wait to meet you and your family!
