Forget Your Fears with Sedation Dentistry

Posted on May 13th, 2020

5 Common questions about Sedation DentistryDon’t Be Afraid of the Dentist!

Family Dental Practice knows that some folks avoid the dentist’s chair like the plague. According to studies at the Dental Fears Research Clinic at the University of Washington, as many as 8% of Americans are too afraid to go to dentists and 20% are too anxious to visit a dentist for anything other than an emergency.

Dr. Buchholtz and Dr. Garro understands that dental anxiety prevents a lot of people from getting the care they need, so we’ve designed our entire practice around your comfort. Read on to find out about how we can help!

 

Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist

First of all, don’t feel bad if you fear the dentist. It’s very common and understandable. Your mouth is sensitive and private, and having someone else poke around in there can be traumatic. However, there are a ton of things we do at Family Dental Practice to make sure that every patient feels safe and comfortable. That means that from the waiting room to Dr. Buchholtz or Dr. Garro’s chair, you are in good hands! We’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that your experience is a pleasant one.

 

Sedation Dentistry

In addition to using topical anesthetics to numb you before shots and checking constantly to make sure that you are comfortable, Family Dental Practice offers a number of sedation dentistry options that will ease your anxiety. How does sedation dentistry work? Depending on your preferences, Dr. Buchholtz and Dr. Garro will give you medication before or during your treatment.

Although you will not be asleep during the procedure, the sedatives will help relieve your anxiety and put you in a relaxed, comfortable state. Local anesthetic shots will still be necessary, but you’ll hardly notice them or any of the dental work going on. Just make sure you have a friend or family member to drop you off and pick you up.

 

It’s All About Your Comfort
