The secret to anxiety-free dental care in Quincy, MA

Anxiety-free Dental Care in Quincy MA area

Dental problems can occur for many different reasons, often related to injury, disease, or infection. However, the underlying issue at the root of the problem is not always physical. Millions of Americans suffer from anxiety, which can lead them to avoid necessary dental treatment. 

The cycle of anxiety ends here

Dental fear can become a destructive cycle. It might begin with a bad experience, a problem such as claustrophobia, or maybe just exposure to negative stereotypes. You start to dread seeing a dentist, so you postpone it. As oral health deteriorates, you might start to worry about being judged for waiting so long, adding another layer to your anxiety. It can feel like the anxiety is in control of your oral health. The good news is that you can take control, break the cycle, and enjoy the healthy, dazzling smile that you deserve

How is dental care from Dr. Stephen Matarazzo different?

  • Compassionate, high quality care – Dr. Matarazzo offers a wide variety of advanced treatments, and he focuses on full mouth rehabilitation. He is well known not only for his exceptional skills but also his kind and understanding chairside manner that helps patients feel at ease. 
  • Drill less dentistry – With our suite of dental lasers, the need for drills is eliminated or drastically reduced. 
  • Gentle treatment – Laser dentistry is inherently more comfortable, because it does not cause heat or vibration. Additionally, Dr. Matarazzo takes great care to use precision techniques, minimizing discomfort in the dental chair and during healing. 
  • Oral sedation – Anxiety is not a switch that you can simply turn off. No matter how much you trust your dentist, that old familiar fear can crop up. That is why Dr. Matarazzo is DOCS certified in oral sedation, which helps even the most anxious patient relax throughout treatment.
