It’s generally acknowledged that many people (some reports state upwards of 25-30%) experience feelings of anxiety and dread about going to the dentist. You might even be one of them. Dental sedation can help you overcome your fear.
The problem is, fear is spilling over into other areas of your life.
By not having your dental issues corrected, here are a few things you might be experiencing:
- Not being able to enjoy your favorite foods
- Poor nutrition and health
- Discomfort every time you bite down
- Your grandchildren commenting on or even making fun of your teeth
- Declining self-confidence
- Losing the promotion that should have been yours
- And more
It doesn’t matter who or what caused your level of fear and anxiety. The fact is, you’re being robbed of enjoying your life. Your fear is holding you back from not only getting your teeth fixed, but having a great smile, and more confidence.
With advancements in modern dental medicine, there are now a variety of sedation options geared towards any level of anxiety. You can see the dentist comfortably and without fear.
Whether you only need your teeth cleaned or require more extensive work be done in your mouth, there are sedation options to best suit you. And, there are even light sedation options for your children, if they should need it.
You may want to remain awake during your procedure and only need a light sedation. Or, perhaps you prefer not to have any memory of it at all. Regardless, of the level of fear and anxiety and the dental work you need, you can discuss this with your dentist to accommodate your request! Have an open discussion about any anxieties you may be feeling so the best plan can be chosen for you.
