Don’t Let Fear And Anxiety Keep You From Getting The Smile You Want

Written by Dr. McKay on Jun 26, 2018

Our Glendale dentists know that, for many people, undergoing dental treatment—heck, even scheduling a dental appointment—can cause overwhelming stress and anxiety. Some people carry memories of negative dental experiences, perhaps from childhood. While others hate the feeling of being out of control in the dentist’s chair.

No matter what your specific situation, sedation dentistry may be able to help you overcome the barriers that are preventing you from getting treatment. Here are a few of situation in which sedation is commonly utilized:

  1. Overcome Anxiety

Dental anxiety is very common among patients of all ages. Unfortunately, this leads people to put off and avoid dental care. Some patients even chronically make and cancel appointments, because they just can’t get to the office due to anxiety. Using oral conscious sedation, you can start to feel confident and calm before you even come in for treatment; simply take your dentist prescribed pill about an hour before your appointment to put anxiety to rest.

  1. Fast-track Treatment

Patients who are undergoing comprehensive or multi-phased treatment may also benefit from sedation. When you use sedation, you don’t become tense and fatigued as quickly in the dentist’s chair. Consequently, our dental team can get more done in fewer appointments.

  1. Pain Management

We can’t overlook the usefulness of sedation treatment in dulling dentistry related pain. You’ll stay calm and comfortable throughout the process thanks to advancements in sedation technology.

Sedation treatment can empower you to put your dental health first. Relaxation treatments are appropriate for many different types of patients and people; the best way to find out whether sedation can help you is to schedule a personal consultation with our Glendale sedation dentists.
