Dental Fear and Phobias
You wake up in the morning, groggy and ready to take a nap. As you make your way to the kitchen to make some breakfast, you are greeted by your calendar. As you look at the date, you notice that something is fast approaching—a trip to the dentist. As you look at the date, you almost immediately freeze with fear and start thinking about ways that you can avoid the visit.
It is estimated that millions of Americans avoid the dentist because of dental fear.

Overcoming Dental Fear
During a consultation with Dr. Mohamed Ali, all of your concerns about the dentist will be answered, and Dr. Ali may explain different methods that he uses to make you more comfortable at the dentist’s office. Before any steps are taken, Dr. Ali will explain everything thoroughly to ensure that you are comfortable with everything. Dr. Ali will also stop for multiple breaks when requested so you can move through the procedures at your own pace.
In addition, Dr. Ali may recommend sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows a patient to relax during an office visit so that proper oral cleanings and procedures can take place. At Dr. Mohamed Ali’s office, both oral and IV sedation are provided so that the best method can be used for each individual patient.
Dr. Ali will discuss your options with you before any procedure. If sedation dentistry can help you to feel more comfortable during a visit, then it may be a good option for you to maintain your oral health, without fear of the sights and sounds of the dentist.
