Most patients normally encounter some degree of apprehension when it comes to visiting the dentist. For others though, this anxiety can develop into a paralyzing fear that prevents them from pursuing necessary professional dental care, to the detriment of their oral health even.
What’s Holding You Back?
Are any of the following factors preventing you from receiving vital dental treatment, or smile-enhancing cosmetic procedures?
- An extremely sensitive gag reflex.
- Anxiety over potential needles, drilling, or pain involved in some procedures.
- Concern of discomfort from having your mouth open for an extended period of time.
- Bad dental experiences in the past.
- Sensitive teeth.
- A physical disorder that makes sitting difficult.
- The necessity of complex, or multiple dental procedures.
Putting Dental Fear To Rest
Dental phobia should not dictate the condition and beauty your smile is left in. That’s why leading North Bend dentist, Dr. Devin Brice, offers IV sedation dentistry to put such dental anxieties to rest, and keep your smile in tip-top shape.
IV sedation dentistry is safe and effective. In fact, the American Dental Association endorsed the effectiveness of this therapy. We go beyond to make sure your dental care is comfortable, and IV sedation induces your body into a state of deep relaxation to help you feel less anxious about your dental procedures.
Because sedation dentistry encourages your mind to relax, we have patients who hardly remember their dental procedures.
Regardless of whether you require a simple cleaning, extensive dental work, or even multiple procedures, sedation dentistry has the ability to alleviate your anxieties.
Sit back, relax, and start enjoying the many benefits that a dazzling, healthy looking smile can bring. How about you? What’s your biggest fear about visiting the dentist?
