Fear of The Dentist
Over 20% of Americans struggle with fear and anxiety when it comes to making a trip to their Dentist. Reasons vary for every patient, but the most common reasons that individuals neglect their oral health is due to fear – also known as Dentophobia.
Do any of these sound like you or your loved one?
If you answered yes, you are a patient who could benefit from Sedation Dentistry services.
What if I just don’t go to The Dentist?
Putting off dental visits increases the risk of tooth loss, severe dental infections, and increases your risk of being diagnosed with oral cancer. Neglecting your oral health can have a negative impact on your overall physical health as well causing other issues such as but not limited to – heart conditions, dementia, respiratory infections, diabetes, complications during pregnancy, infertility, erectile dysfunction, kidney disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

How Does Sedation Work?
It’s not really what you might think. If you are worried about a loss of control – fear not. With Sedation Dentistry you are aware of the actions taking place during the entirety of your procedure!

Sedation Dentistry relaxes you for 2-8 hours after administration, giving you the ability to rest and remain calm during the duration of your appointment and after.
