Dental Anxiety Is Common But We Can HelpFriday, May 4th, 2012, 1:07 am
Dental anxiety is more common than you might think but you don’t need to avoid taking care of your oral health – we can help! Dental anxiety can start in many ways including family members telling horror stories to children about old-time dental care or a bad experience with a dental procedure previously. Modern dentistry is virtually painless.
Whatever the reason for the fear we first need to acknowledge that the anxiety is real and that we can talk about it. Sometimes talking about it is all that is needed! But for many patients the anxiety and fear prevents them from even making an appointment. Delaying dental care just makes the problems worsen over time because tooth decay doesn’t ever heal itself.
No matter your level of anxiety Wilbanks Smile Center can treat you without discomfort with the use of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows you to get the care you need, even preventative care like dental cleanings, without feeling nervous. Options for treatment range from nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation and even IV sedation. Using sedation dentistry we can correct years of neglect in just one or two appointments.
Please contact Wilbanks Smile Center in Toccoa, GA today at 706-886-9439 to find out your options for sedation dental care. Remember that sedation dentistry can be beneficial for patients who do not fear the dentist but have a strong gag reflex or have difficulty getting numb.
