For some patients, dental anxiety can prevent them from seeking the oral healthcare they need. They put off treating minor oral health concerns and end up developing complex dental concerns that require extensive restorative dental treatments. Fear of the dentist is a common and understandable concern. Marr Family Dentistry has a compassionate staff that is here to work with you and will help you develop a plan to put you at ease during your dental appointment.
Dr. Kami and Kevin Marr offer patient education and sedation dentistry options to ease patients anxiety. Regular dental check-ups can help patients to avoid the development of complex oral health concerns. Regular schedule dental cleanings and exams reduce the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, tooth loss and bone deterioration allowing for less invasive treatments.
Disease Prevention & Patient Education
Patient education is the main focus at Marr Family Dentistry. From basic oral hygiene, like effective brushing techniques to explain the root canal process, our highly educated staff will be sure that our patients are able to make informed decisions about their dental care. We will take the time to listen to your concerns and help to explain every procedure you receive. Understanding the process often helps patients feel less anxiety on the day of their procedure.
Through our experience, we find that effective and open communication can help ease patients anxiety. We encourage open channels of communication with all of our patients. We also establish a signal with each patient. This hand signal can be used to stop treatment at any time. If you feel discomfort or are having concerns, you can use the agreed upon signal to remain in control of your own treatment.
For patients with severe dental anxiety, we provide sedation dentistry options. Sedation dentistry is an effective option for patients who would otherwise be unable to receive treatment due to fear of the dentist. Our Greeley, CO dentist office offers nitrous oxide and oral sedatives. Dr. Marr will choose a sedation method determined on your medical history and current medication usage.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to remain alerted and awake during treatment while enjoying a totally relaxed and comfortable experience. Sedation dentistry can allow Dr. Marr to perform multiple procedures in one sitting. Sedation dentistry is safe and effective and gives our anxious patients a change to receive the dental care they need.
