Dental Anxiety San Francisco, CA

Fear of the dentist is real. And we get it. Dental anxiety keeps too many patients from receiving the dental care they need, and the truth is, that only increases your chance of needing to spend more time in the dentist chair. Patients who do not visit the dentist at least twice a year are more prone to developing a whole range of advanced dental health concerns that may require more complex dental procedures.

Union Square Dental Group, situated in the Financial District of San Fransisco, CA, offers compassionate, friendly dental care to help patients feel at ease. We also offer sedation dentistry, for those who need a little extra help relaxing at the dentist.

Combating Dental Anxiety

That means less invasive treatments with more effective results. We help patients to understand the treatments they are receiving, and find that knowledge is often powerful in combating dental anxiety. Our state of the art dental office uses modern dental tools that allow for faster turnover for dental restorations and shorter downtimes after treatment so patients can get back to their busy lives.

For patients suffering from advanced dental anxiety, your Union Square Dentist may recommend a form of dental sedation. Sedation dentistry provides patients with the ability to feel totally relaxed and at ease while remaining awake and alert during their dental treatments. Sedation dentistry also allows dentists to perform multiple procedures in one sitting saving our patients money, stress, and time.

Sedation Dentistry Options
