Sedation Dentistry Provides Calm EnvironmentMonday, February 18th, 2013, 10:35 pm
Sedation dentistry is designed to take the anxiety and discomfort out of your dental treatment by providing a calm, nurturing environment.
More than 30 million Americans report some degree of dental phobia – ranging from mild to severe. Depending upon the severity of their anxiety, patients may avoid dental treatment for years until a painful situation drives them to treatment.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Sedation dentistry allows you to get the treatment you need, even preventive treatment such as routine cleanings, without fear. Wilbanks Smile Center offers a range of sedation options for patients who suffer from dental anxiety or phobia. Sedation dentistry is safe with little risk for side effects and patients are monitored throughout the procedure for their safety and comfort. Sedation options range from nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which is highly effective for minor anxiety, to oral medications and even IV sedation for patients with a severe fear of treatment.
Many patients find that their fear diminishes after one or two appointments and they become comfortable and familiar with the nurturing environment offered in this Toccoa, GA office. Once fear is no longer a factor in dental treatment most people find that picking up the phone to make that preventative care appointment is not so hard.
Anxious patients are not only able to get needed restorative and preventive care using sedation dentistry, they can also improve the beauty of their smile through cosmetic dentistry. Often years of neglect and problems can be resolved in just a couple of visits while the patient remains totally relaxed.
