It’s important to know that a visit to the dentist can be a positive experience, even when treatment is necessary. Millions of Americans, nearly 30%, are afraid of the dentist. They avoid dental care at all costs, even when they are in pain or discomfort. But it no longer has to be that way.
Modern dentistry offers safe, effective, and comfortable treatments, without the use of needles, to anxious and fearful patients. Most fears develop in childhood, so odds are you have carried your dread of dental treatment for years. You avoid receiving care and as a result, your dental health deteriorates. When you are no longer able to stand the pain or discomfort and finally seek treatment, extensive restorative work is required. That means more time in the dental chair, more procedures, and more expense, which only furthers your trepidation. It is a nasty cycle and it must be broken.
Dental fear is a hidden phobia—the monster in the closet that no one wants to talk about. Like many people, you may be embarrassed to admit your fears and even more afraid to confront them. Often times not even your loved ones are aware of your apprehension. Worse yet, you may have never known that oral sedation dentistry was an option.
Not anymore! Sedation dentistry is not painful — or scary. With Anxiety-Free Dentistry you can regain your health and have the fabulous smile you always wanted.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1 – Make your first appointment
This is difficult for many anxious people, so we try to make this as easy as possible.
Step 2 – Welcoming visit
We gather information regarding your health and discuss with you your wants and desires. If you’re comfortable, we’ll take x-rays and look in your mouth. If not, we’ll do them later. But you will never be judged or embarrassed.
Step 3 – Prepare for your sedation visit
We’ll give you a pill to take the night before your first appointment to guarantee a good night’s sleep and to make sure you wake up relaxed.
Step 4 – Arrive for Treatment
Your companion will bring you to the office. Additional medications will be provided to create the ultimate in relaxation. Your experienced sedation team will monitor you throughout your entire visit.
Step 5 – Go home with your new smile
Your companion will take you home and stay with you until you’re completely recovered from your sedation medication.
Step 6 – The next day
Most patients feel no discomfort or residual effects from the dental visit and you’ll be thrilled with all the compliments you will get.
Call us and we’ll be glad to send you a brochure and/or a video that goes into more detail about just what’s involved.
It is important to realize that the type of sedation we offer involves no needles! This type of sedation is known as “anxiolysis“…and is designed to gently sedate anxious patients using oral medication without putting them to sleep.
In addition, if needles bother you please take a look at the Powerlase AT on our High Technology page. This laser allows us to do a LOT of restorative procedures without an injection! It “numbs” the tooth while removing the decay…all at the same time. It is truly amazing!
