Not if we have anything to say about it! Many people who are concerned about a painful procedure have had a negative experience in the dental office in the past.
Both Dr. Abbie McKnight and Dr. Megan Konz are compassionate to the painful experiences our patients have had in the past and aim to provide pain-free dentistry that makes a trip to the dental office something you look forward to instead of something that gives you anxiety.
The most powerful anti-anxiety tool we have is our team. Their gentle and kind natures put even the most fearful patients at ease.
When patients need some additional assistance, we also offer sedation dentistry in our Leawood dental office. Anxiety can make it difficult to get completely numb and makes dental appointments seem lengthy. Oral sedation induces a relaxed state making dental appointments fly by without stress or fear. Oral sedation requires a full medical history to determine if it is safe for you.
Opting for sedation is also popular among patients with a strong gag reflex or who have difficulty sitting still comfortably.
