Help Me Provo; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Orem Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your Provo cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we encounter many nervous first-time Provo dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation medications. This allows our general dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Drs. Hammond practice gentle, pain-free dentistry. Provo cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every Provo dental patient chooses sedation dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 3575 N 100 E, Ste 200, Provo, UT 84604.
