Dental Fear or Dental Phobia is the fear of receiving dental care. For some may be just a manageable anxiety but for others, it can cause refusal to get dental care. At McCauley Dental, we work with a phobic patient towards his most comfortable. Using behavioral techniques such as the use of non-threatening language, positive reinforcement or step-by-step verbal explanations of the procedure, Dr. McCauley tries to relax nervous adult patients. When non-pharmacological techniques fail Dr. McCauley is a recognized Sedation Dentist.
Treatment by a sedation dentist is not recommended for all patients. While most patients are suitable candidates for anesthesia or complicated procedures, some are not. The key to maintaining the highest standards is the proper patient selection. During your consultation, your Sedation Dentist will carefully evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for the proposed treatment.
