About 30% of the population avoids dental care due to anxiety and fear. This not only jeopardizes their oral health, but puts them at risk for major diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
Sedation dentistry allows you to get the dental care you need while feeling relaxed and comfortable.
Oral sedation dentistry is safe and does not involve being asleep or require needles for IVs. Patients report that:
- They feel relaxed
- Time goes by quickly
- They are sleepy, but awake
- They often forget the appointment later
Because patients are completely relaxed, the dentist can accomplish more high-quality dentistry in less time. Sedation dentistry is also ideal for people who are challenged by a gag reflex or who want to accomplish a smile makeover or extensive dentistry with as few appointments as possible.
If you or someone you know are avoiding dental care due to fear, anxiety, or time constraints, ask about oral sedation dentistry. Not taking care of your teeth can be dangerous and may shorten your life. Start getting the dentistry you need in a way that feels safe, comfortable, and right for you.
Oral sedation dentistry can help put a smile on your face again.
