Dental Anxiety Plymouth, MI - Relief with Patient-Friendly Technology

Like other types of stress, dental anxiety tends to feed on itself. If anxiety causes you to avoid regular dental care at our Plymouth, MI dentist office, you may see us only when you’re already in pain. You may then need the kind of treatment that will create even more anxiety.

Dr. Douglas Callow on Relieving Dental Anxiety Read Transcript

Worse, this fearful attitude can affect how your children and other family members feel about the dentist too.

Fortunately, we can help you overcome your dental anxiety. We’ll relax you with amenities like pillows and blankets. If you’re still nervous, we can offer you sedation.

For a stress-free dental appointment, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336. With his 36 years of experience in the dentistry field,  Douglas A. Callow, DDS, a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, is one of the most trusted dentist in the area.

We Use Patient-Friendly Technology for Proactive Care

Being proactive about dental care keeps your treatment less complicated and costly. While a simple tooth filling repairs a small cavity, you’ll need a more extensive restoration like a dental crown or even a root canal if decay isn’t treated promptly. That’s why we use technology like our DIAGNOdent cavity detector, which finds cavities in their earliest stages, to keep your care as proactive as possible.

Many patients are uncomfortable if they don’t feel well-informed about their treatment. Dr. Doug Callow carefully explains every procedure. And we use technology that lets us illustrate our explanations with clear visuals.

Our patient-friendly technologies include:

  • Digital X-rays. We can easily enlarge these quick, accurate images to show more detail.
  • Intraoral camera. This tool allows Dr. Callow to share with you what he is seeing as he examines your teeth.
  • Ultrasonic scaler. This tool makes your dental cleanings quicker and more comfortable.

We Relax You With Amenities, Dental Sedation

Almost any experience is more relaxing with a pillow and blanket. So we’ll offer both to you during your visit to our Plymouth, MI dentist office. In addition, you can enjoy:

  • Wi-Fi access, so you can surf the internet
  • Headphones, for a welcome distraction during treatment

If you’re still feeling edgy, we can administer inhaled sedation. You’ll feel mildly euphoric during treatment, but you’ll still be able to drive yourself home. It’s even safe for kids.

No need to feel nervous at the dentist! Call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336. Or use our online form to make an appointment. Our Plymouth, MI office is located on General Drive near I-275 off Ann Arbor Road.
