Dental Fear

Overcome fear of the dentist with gentle treatment in Carol Stream, IL

Has fear of going to the dentist impacted your smile, health, or self-confidence? You might be surprised at how many people in the Carol Stream, IL area are in the same situation. There is a solution. With sedation dentistry and the gentle touch of the team at Park Dental Care, most people prevail over fear and get their oral health back on track.

Why are some people scared of the dentist?

  • Emotional issues with closeness, vulnerability, or lack of control
  • Aversion to needles
  • Concerns about expense, pain, or dying
  • Biological need to keep airways clear
  • Previous rough treatment in a dental chair
  • Witnessing the anxiety of other family members
  • Exaggerated “horror stories”

We understand, and we have dealt compassionately and successfully with all these elements of dental anxiety.

Options for painless dentistry

Pain is both a physical and emotional response, so we naturally address both at Park Dental Care. Just knowing these options exist may enable you to take the first step – making an appointment.

Oral conscious sedation is a pill taken before your appointment to “take the edge off.” You will be groggy, so it is necessary to have a driver. However, treatment time seems to pass quickly, and you have little or no recollection of the experience.

Fear of the dentist doesn’t keep Carol Stream, IL patients from enjoying healthy smiles. Each of our providers – Dr. Evelyn and Dr. Britly – is known as a dentist for people with a phobia. We have helped many of your friends and neighbors regain oral health, and we can help you overcome dental anxiety, too. Call 630-556-8880 for an appointment at Park Dental Care.
