Overcome Dental Fear Through Sedation Dentistry
Concerns over dental anxiety keep approximately 35 million Americans from visiting their dentist. This is unfortunate because dental anxiety can be easily addressed with sedation dentistry. Some of the most common dental fears are:
- Fear or embarrassment about the condition of teeth
- Fear of gagging or pain
- Fear of injections or the drill
Recent technological advancements have meant that, in many cases, dentists are able to replace noisy drills with painless laser beams.
Sedation dentistry is often used during procedures that require an extensive amount of time in the treatment chair or with patients who have difficulty controlling their movements (including children).
At Parkway Prosthodontics, we offer a sedation option to ensure our patients feel nothing but comfort throughout their visit: nitrous oxide sedation.
