What are you afraid of this Halloween season? Maybe you caught a marathon of the Michael Myers movies and shivered a little bit. Maybe you ventured over to haunted house, and paid someone to make you scream. Halloween can be a fun time to be frightened.

But for millions of Americans, fear is regular part of their lives. They are simply afraid of the dentist. That fear may even lead them to put off needed dental work. This procrastination can turn a really small problem into a much larger one. If you aren’t seeing a dentist every six months for a dental cleaning, plaque is probably accumulating on your teeth. Plaque will eventually lead to tooth decay; tooth decay often requires a filling or root canal to save the tooth.

At Plano Smile Studio in Plano, TX, we want you to know that you no longer have to be afraid of the dentist. We offer a number of services designed to keep you at ease throughout all your dental work. In today’s post of our dental health blog, we want to share four reasons why you don’t need to fear making an appointment at our comfortable and modern office.

Reason #1: Our Office Has a Spa Atmosphere

At Plano Smile Studio, we have gone above and beyond in an attempt to provide a relaxing environment. Our office does not feel like a typical dentist office; from the moment you walk-in, you’ll feel relaxed and at ease. We carefully designed our office to provide a zen-like atmosphere; we also play soothing music under soft mood lighting.

Our staff members are also accustomed to treating patients with dental fears and anxieties. We will answer any questions you have about your procedure, and fully explain every detail of your procedure to you in language you can understand. We also have a “one patient at a time” policy; this means you will always receive individualized and attentive dental care.

Reason #2: We Use Stringent Infection Control

Your safety is always our top priority at Plano Smile Studio. Every day, we sterilize the water lines we use in our office. We also use disposable items and materials to prevent the spread of bacteria. When throw away all medical waste into special containers to prevent contamination. Our staff is also taught the latest in infection control and sterilization techniques; always making sure they wash their hands regularly.

Reason #3: We Use Advanced Technology

Dental technology has come a long way in recent years. Many stories you hear from others about painful experiences at the dentist office were the result of outdated technology. At Plano Smile Studio, we use cutting-edge technology and the latest procedures to ensure we can provide you with a comfortable experience. We are always precise in planning your treatment, and can offer virtually painless procedures.

Reason #4: We Offer Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is designed to help nervous or fearful patients relax during their procedure. We can prescribe you a mild sedative to take about a half-hour before your procedure. You simply swallow the pill then sit-back and relax. Many patients even fall asleep during sedation dentistry. So quit worrying about dental work and start relaxing during your dental appointments!
