Dental anxiety is a common problem. Many people find a trip to the dentist more daunting than a job interview or more terrifying than skydiving. Unlike skydiving, however, if you avoid the dentist, you’ll be met with some serious health complications.
How Robert Rosenfeld DDS Can Help
Keeping this severe fear of the dentist in mind, our team has carefully considered what we can do to help make our patients more comfortable in our office and therefore less anxious about coming in for a visit.
If you are susceptible to bouts of anxiety, especially concerning dental care, we are happy to use sedation dentistry to help. Sedation dentistry is administered through medication that helps patients feel relaxed and can even minimize the memories of your visit.
This can be particularly helpful if:
- Your anxiety keeps you from ever going to the dentist.
- A dental surgery or other procedure is making you particularly nervous.
- You, or your child, have special needs and struggle in the dental chair.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Stop Dental Anxiety?
Patients who use sedation dentistry frequently to help them get the dental care they need find it easier to go to the dentist. There is no more dread as the day of the appointment draws nearer. With sedation dentistry, you can mark days off your calendar without spiking your blood pressure.
As you see the results of your dental work and have multiple positive experiences using sedation dentistry, you’ll begin to be more and more comfortable with us. Maybe even to the point where you won’t need to rely on sedation dentistry anymore.
