Dental Phobias

Phobia, from the Greek phobos, means "morbid fear," and as irrational as it may seem to others, a phobia is as real and intense to its sufferer as a rollercoaster ride. Dental phobias are often based on unpleasant or painful past experiences at a dental office.

Maybe a sensitive tooth was scrapped during a cleaning, or a numbing agent had not had time to sufficiently work before a procedure was preformed. Perhaps the fear is more general, like a fear of needles, medical equipment, or claustrophobia associated with sitting still in a chair.

No matter what the cause of your "morbid fear," the doctors at Colonial Dental Group are devoted to providing you with a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable experience.

How We Handle Dental Phobia

We work hard to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed from the moment you enter our office. Our friendly staff will ensure your ease prior to your appointment, and our doctors will work closely with you to address any questions or concerns you may have.

We utilize the latest in dental technology, making your procedure safe, quick, and painless. Additionally, we offer sedation dentistry for patients who are very uncomfortable with the dentist, but need or want dental work done. Combining our professionalism with innovation and compassion, we are able to successfully treat patients with even the most extreme dental phobias.

Whether you are in need of general dentistry, or want to perfect your smile through one of our many cosmetic dental procedures, we will work with you to make sure your visit is more comfortable than you ever imagined a trip to the dentist could be.

If you suffer from dental phobias in or around Chicago, Illinois, please contact the experienced sedation dentists at Colonial Dental Group today to find out more about how we can help you overcome your fears, to get you the smile you desire.
