So why aren’t you taking advantage of our lasting dental implants and restorations to get a healthy smile again?

Well, as much as we hope we’re wrong, we think we might know the answer.

The real reason you probably can’t get dental implants has to do with your dental anxiety.

How Dental Fear Got The Best Of Your Smile

Maybe you haven’t been told by a dentist you can’t get dental implants.

Maybe the reason has to do with your own inability to face your dental fear.

If we had to guess, based on years of experience helping fearful patients reclaim their oral health, we’d say you share one of these common sources of dental anxiety with the millions of others who feel the same way.

*The Past Trauma You Had As A Kid Is As Real As Ever*

How can we blame anyone for holding on to horrible memories from their past traumatic experiences at the dentist? Any person, if they’re being honest, can understand why you wouldn’t want to risk reliving something that was frightening or painful years ago.

*Your Unhealthy Mouth Will Get You A Lecture*

You’ve stayed away from the dentist for long enough that, by now, you just know it’s going to result in a lecture from the dentist or hygienist if you go back.

We hate to think that happens in any dental practice, and it certainly isn’t something you can expect to happen here!

Your oral health is far too important to treat you so disrespectfully as to give you a judgmental, finger-wagging lecture after having the courage to finally come back to the dentist.

At The Foehr Group, we’re so thrilled when patients put their trust in us after years of crippling dental fear that we go above and beyond to create a safe and caring environment.

We’re in this together, so you don’t ever have to stress about how you’ll be received in our Bloomington, IL practice.

*You Can’t Sit Still & Let Someone Else Take Charge*

This is common because as adults, we fill all sorts of leadership roles in our daily lives, whether domestically or professionally. And for many of us, it’s not that easy to sit back and relax while someone else takes charge. It’s especially unsettling if you’re afraid of pain or have little to no understanding of what’s going on.

*You’re Paralyzed By All The Bad Stories You’ve Heard*

Maybe you don’t have any traumatic experiences at a dentist office that make you dread going. Maybe it’s because of all the stories other people have shared with you that fill you with fear and anxiety.

It’s no wonder! The reason we love reading and watching movies is because stories have the power to transport us to another reality. When told well enough, it’s almost as if you’re actually experiencing things firsthand.

Getting Over Your Fear & Getting A Healthy Smile

Overcoming any kind of fear isn’t usually a fast process. Rather, it’s a slow, step-by-step journey. We would never expect you to gain full confidence about dental care in just one appointment.

We understand that it’s something you can accomplish over time with each positive experience in our Bloomington, IL dental office.

With every procedure, you will be numbed with a local anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing during treatment.

But if you are particularly fearful, you’re going to need more than that to ease your mind!

This is where sedation dentistry can change everything!

We’ll help you choose the right form of sedation to ease your level of anxiety, matched with the length and complexity of your treatment.

Here are our three options in sedation dentistry at The Foehr Group:

*Laughing Gas*

Sometimes, patients are nervous and just need a little something to take the edge off.

Inhaled sedation, or laughing gas, is probably the most common way to do that. Safe for all ages, this method works quickly enough that it can be administered at the start of treatment and wear off in time for you to safely drive yourself home.

*Sedation In Pill Form*

We can give you a pill that you can take before your procedure so by appointment time, you’ll be awake but relaxed enough not to care that it’s happening! With this method, you’re calm and comfortable because the sedative eases the tension in your body.

*IV Sedation*

Here’s one of the ways our dental practice is different than so many others!

The strongest form of dental sedation requires special training and certification, and our team has it! With IV sedation, you’ll get the care you need without a care in the world! We like to call this “Dentistry While You Sleep.”

As someone who’s let fear keep them from the treatment they need, can you imagine a better kind of dentistry?

Schedule An Appointment

The last thing you should ever let stand in the way of getting a healthy smile again is fear. You have too many ways to feel relaxed and calm during your appointments with us in Bloomington, IL.

By taking advantage of our dental sedation options and comfort amenities at The Foehr Group, there’s no amount of dental anxiety you can’t beat!

Once you feel confident enough to give sedation a try, you can unlock a world of possibilities for replacing missing teeth. We use the most advanced technology to give you strong, beautiful replacement teeth stabilized with dental implants for lasting health.
