Let’s face it, many, MANY people are just plain scared to go to the dentist. In fact, according to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, 30% of the population totally avoids going to the dentist simply because they’re afraid. And another 75% of adults experience at least some form of mild to severe fear of the dentist.
In other words, if you’re afraid of the dentist YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
However, in spite of any fears you might have about going to the dentist,your oral health is one of the MOST important factors in determining your overall health and wellness.
Fortunately, there is a way you can receive the critical dental care you need without having to experience any of the fear, worry, anxiety, or stress typically associated with a trip to the dentist. And not only does it make going to the dentist a less stressful experience, but it can actually turn your next visit into an enjoyable experience!
What is this miracle dental solution? It’s called Sedation Dentistry.
Sedation dentistry involves various types of anesthesia to help patients reach a relaxed state, allowing them to receive the important dental care that good overall health requires. While it’s often used for long or invasive dental procedures, it is also a GREAT solution for patients that experience significant levels of anxiety from even a simple routine checkup.
Additionally, sedation dentistry can be used safely for both children and adults. This means that not only can you receive your dental care while completely and totally relaxed, your kids can also experience the ease and comfort that sedation dentistry provide.
Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
Again, sedation dentistry is a great solution for anyone that suffers from fear or anxiety from going to the dentist. Additionally, anyone that has put off the important dental care they need, including routine checkups or cleanings, could benefit from sedation dentistry.
This includes phobias or problems such as:
- The Needle
- Drill Sounds
- Don’t like the bad taste or smell of the dental visit.
- Difficulty getting numb
- Patients with Tremors due to an accident or health trouble
- Bad experiences with previous dentist
- People that have multiple complex problems that want to get many things done in as few appointments as possible.
Sedation Dentistry Help Minimize Anxiety
While there are many benefits of sedation dentistry, one of the primary benefits is how it allows people to receive the critical dental care they need in a relaxed, comfortable state.
