Let’s face it, going to the dentist can bring on great anxiety for many people. The fear of the unknown can lead to cold sweats, nervousness, and avoiding the dentist altogether in the most serious cases. This can be detrimental for those that have existing dental issues.
According to a study conducted by the Journal of Dental Hygiene, 50-80% of adults in the U.S. have some dental anxiety. Of those, over 20% do not see a dentist regularly. Nine to 15% of patients suffering from dental anxiety avoid dental care completely.
For some people, even minor dental treatments can lead to anxiety. One way to alleviate that stress is to visit Dr. Chase Larsen to discuss sedation dentistry. The team at Chase Inspired Dentistry believes in making patients feel as comfortable as possible.
From the second you walk into the office for your appointment, the team will make you feel relaxed. One of the ways they accomplish this is through sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to make you comfortable during your dental procedures. It can be used for simple dental check-ups to more complex treatments like extractions and root canals.
Sedation dentistry can be the difference between a dazzling smile and one needing serious dental care. Here are some ways sedation dentistry can help during your next dental appointment.
