Dental Phobia, Anxiety

Do you avoid going to the dentist due to anxiety or fear? Dental phobia is a very real condition that affects both children and adults. It is also a leading reason why many people neglect to give their smile the attention it needs for optimal health. However, at Gramercy Dental Center, we specialize in treating patients with special requirements, such as dental phobia. Our practice uses several tactics to help patients relax and receive dental treatments without anxiety or stress. Most of all, you’ll be met with compassionate and friendly care from a skilled team of dental professionals.

There are many reasons that cause patients to suffer from dental anxiety or dental fear. This condition can also vary in severity. Whether you get sweaty palms and a racing heart in the waiting room or you suffer from debilitating fear at the mere thought of going to the dentist, we can help you. Gramercy Dental Center recognizes and treats patients who have dental phobia triggered by the following:

  • Sights, smells or sounds of the dental office (drill, latex, etc.)
  • Fear of pain or needles
  • Bad dental experience in the past
  • Severe gag reflex

Comfortable Dental Care for Patients with Dental Anxiety

While our modern amenities and friendly staff are sure to put you at ease, we also realize that some patients need additional help relaxing in the dental chair. Our dentists are proud to offer sedation dentistry for children and adults in Gramercy Park. Through our options in sedation dentistry, we give patients the opportunity to have stress-free and painless dental treatments without lingering side effects after their appointment.

To further our commitment to hassle-free dental care, Gramercy Dental Center can also handle your scheduling concerns and budget worries too. We offer convenient appointment hours and flexible payment plans to families in the New York area.

What is keeping you from getting the preventive, restorative or cosmetic dental care your smile is begging for? If it is dental phobia, let us address it. We are confident that we can create a comfortable and rewarding experience for all patients, including those with special needs. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
