Getting Past Dental Fears With Our Help

Do you hate the idea of visiting the dentist? Are you ready to skip needed treatments so you don’t have to deal with it? Call us today at 816-399-5539 to get an appointment with dental sedation. Dr. Stiver is your Kansas City dentist with specialized training in sedation, so he can help you relax and feel comfortable. Your teeth won’t fix themselves.

Types Of Dental Sedation

At the Dental Care Center of South Kansas City, there are several ways we can help.

  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV sedation

There are more ways to help with dental anxiety than just sedation, however. You can have longer appointments so you don’t feel rushed. (We’re also open until 7:00 P.M. twice each week so you might not have to miss work.) You can get a private operatory room if you need, and we have plenty of comfort options including TVs, headphones, pillows, and aromatherapy towels.

Sources Of Dental Anxiety

You had a bad experience at another dentist’s office.

This is especially powerful because it often happens when you are a child. If you went in for a routine treatment and another dentist made you feel unwelcome or even in pain, you might fear that happening again.

By calling us today, you can schedule an appointment that includes dental sedation. Dr. Stiver has extra training in IV sedation that other dentists in Kansas City might not have. Between IV sedation and local anesthetic, your dental treatment can be virtually pain-free and easy to get through no matter your history.

You heard bad stories from others.

Stories are powerful things, as anyone who has binged on Netflix can tell you. Even if you never had a bad dental experience, stories of such experiences can impact you. You might have heard something from a friend that makes you anxious. Then again, you might not know exactly where the story came from. Regardless, you have dental anxiety.

We have the solution. Call us today at 816-399-5539 to get dental sedation for your next appointment. Nitrous oxide and oral sedation do not normally make you sleep. Instead, you will feel relaxed and confident. Dr. Stiver will be able to talk to you this way.

You feel a bit helpless lying back in the chair.

If you’re a parent or supervisor, you’re used to doing things. There’s a lot on your plate, and you have to keep making decisions and assigning tasks to keep things moving. Do that long enough and you get very used to it. Then you sit back in our comfortable chair, and you have to let our team do all the work. That can be hard to adjust to, creating dental anxiety.

That’s why you need to call our Kansas City, MO dental office today. Dr. Stiver has advanced training in sedation dentistry. Whether you go with nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation, you will have no problem kicking back and letting other people do the work for a change.

You’re worried about being lectured because it’s been a long time since your last dental visit.

Your calendar is often full, if not overly full. Sometimes, you just can’t get to everything like you want to. If you missed a dental appointment, you might be worried about getting a lecture. Miss several in a row and that worry can grow into dental anxiety.

Call our Kansas City, MO dental office today. Our whole team only wants to help your smile be its best. Of course, we want to see you every six months. But we never lecture you for staying away too long because that won’t help any. Instead, we will treat you with warmth and kindness from the moment you enter our office.

You don’t know what will happen or what’s wrong with your smile.

Fear of the unknown is powerful. Dentistry can be complicated. Combine the two, and it’s not hard to see why you might have anxiety about your visit. There’s just so much that you don’t know. Thinking about what your next appointment might reveal can make it tempting to skip the appointment altogether.

Instead, call us today to request dental sedation for that appointment. Nitrous oxide and oral sedation can both induce a powerful relaxed feeling. Yet you’re still conscious and in control. You’re just calm and relaxed, so you can get through your appointment and get the dental treatments you need. Dr. Stiver is a local expert in sedation dentistry, so he can help you decide how best to remove your dental anxiety.

Call us TODAY at 816-399-5539. Dental anxiety is a real, powerful thing. Since dental problems like cavities and gum disease only get worse over time, it’s crucial to call us and schedule an appointment with dental sedation. With our friendly attitudes and Dr. Stiver’s advanced training, you can finally feel calm and relaxed so you can get your dental treatments.
