2015 is the beginning of a new year, and we know that good things come when you are determined to make better health choices! Having a healthier smile is easier said than done when you are also carrying a fear of the dentist. A new year is a chance to overcome old fears and live a better life for it. Losing your fear of the dentist will definitely benefit you!
Putting this “Old Acquaintance” in the Past
As the song “Auld Lang Syne” suggests, we should be putting some old acquaintances in the past. Fear of the dentist is one of those acquaintances. Most dental fear cases that we see stem from a previous experience. There are a lot of bad dentists in the world, and if you managed to find one, you definitely have a right to feel fear. Our goal is to help you overcome that fear so that you can maintain a healthy smile.
Embrace Sedation Dentistry
If you avoid the dental office because of a fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry could be your solution. Sedation dentistry allows you to walk into the office in a relaxed state. We will prescribe your medication to take about an hour before your appointment. Once you are here, you will feel relaxed from the medication which will make your appointment go much smoother. You will be able to convince your mind that there really is nothing to fear, and that will make your future appointments just a little bit easier.
You don’t have to carry around a fear of the dentist any longer. Sedation dentistry will change the way you view your next appointment. We offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation so that every patient can feel comfortable. Contact us today to learn if sedation is right for you. We would love to hear from you very soon!
