Many of our patients who have fears of the dentist or dental anxiety feel that they suffer alone. In reality, between 30 and 40 million Americans put off or cancel trips to the dentist as a result of dental phobia. If you get sweaty palms at the mere mention of dental treatment, do not lose hope: you are not alone, and we have a number of sedation dentistry solutions for you. From moderate nitrous oxide, to safely prescribed sedation dentistry (swallowing a pill) and I.V. sedation, our patients have a wide range of anxiety-reducing options.
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.
If you are reluctant to improve the health of your mouth or change the appearance of your smile because you are anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve the result you desire.
