Sedation Dentistry can help make your dental visit seem like a pleasant dream

Sedation Dentistry

Are you afraid of having your teeth worked on? If so you are not alone. Fear of dental treatment, also known as dental phobia, is not uncommon. It is estimated that 75% of adults suffer from some form of dental fear. For about 9% to 20% of the population, this fear is so great that they avoid going to the dentist altogether.

Many people ignore their oral health because of the fear or anxiety associated with sitting in a dental chair. Dental fears jeopardize not only your dental health but your overall health as well. Current medical research shows an increasing linkage between oral health and a person’s overall health and longevity in general.

The fear of going to the dentist is typically deeply ingrained and often stems from bad childhood experiences. People who have bad memories of going to the dentist, from the scary noise of the drill to the pain of the procedures, often have a hard time making themselves go unless they are in pain and have no choice. Unfortunately, this vicious cycle only reinforces the fear and anxiety of going to the dentist.

There is a way to break this cycle, its called sedation dentistry.Sedation Dentistry makes your dental visit comfortable
