At Vela Dental Centers Southside in Corpus Christi, Texas, we strive to give our patients the best quality care in the most pleasant and comfortable environment as possible. We do understand, however, that some patients feel anxiety about receiving dental treatment, and even put off necessary treatment due to their dental anxiety.

So, if you are one of those patients, you are in good company. Dental anxiety arises from a variety of factors, including:

–Fear of experiencing pain.

–Fear of receiving injections.

–Fear that the injection won’t work.

–Fear that the injection won’t work properly.

–Fear of the side effects of anesthesia.

–Fear of not being in control while sitting through a procedure

At Vela Dental Centers Southside, Dr. Benjamin Vela and Dr. Allan Ng work hard to provide you with quality dental care in a safe, calm and relaxing atmosphere. There are things we can do to help you feel comfortable during your treatment. First, rest assured that you are not alone, so please let us know that you are experiencing anxiety. We work with you to help you relax and ease your tension. We can explain what will happen as the procedure unfolds, so that you know exactly what to expect next. We can also work out a signal to let us know you need us to stop for a moment, like raising your arm to let us know you need to take a breath, or rinse or spit.

Please don’t let anxiety prevent you from receiving necessary dental treatment. To schedule your next visit with one of our dentists, please call our team at 361.994.4900 today. Dr. Benjamin Vela and Dr. Allan Ng are here to keep your smile healthy and bright.
