In order to keep our smiles healthy and bright, we need to visit the dentist. Not only because they can fix any issues but can warn us about any issues that may become future problems. But what if you are deathly afraid of the dentist. Chances are, you will dodge any dental appointment you possibly can, even if your teeth have begun to hurt. It’s time to take a moment to think about why this is happening and if this fear of the dentist preventing you from getting proper dental care that can improve your oral health and smile. Ask yourself the following questions:
Are you anxious about visiting the dentist?
Are you afraid that you might constantly fidget during a dental procedure?
Does your blood pressure skyrocket once in the dentist’s chair?
If you have answered yes to the following questions you have a definite fear. However, there is hope – your dentist now has the use of sedation for your dental care in order to provide comfort and peace of mind during your visit. To help you with a relaxing, stress free dental visit we offer several different types of sedation, including:
Oral conscious sedation. This option allows patients to take a safe and effective pill prior to the appointment.
Nitrous oxide gas. Laughing gas gives you relaxed feeling while receiving treatment.
IV sedation. This option allows patients to be completely unconscious while receiving treatment.
Don’t let your fears get the most of you – dental sedation options are not only going to give you a pleasant dental experience, but will also ease any dental anxieties going forward, ensuring a healthy mouth.
