Being afraid or anxious when it comes to visiting the dentist is very common and nothing to be ashamed of. Embree Dentistry has heard it all before, and we strive to make our office as welcoming of an environment as we possibly can. This includes offering sedation dentistry to our patients. For more questions than we answer here, feel free to call us, and we can help you out!
What Is Sedation?Sedation is the use of sedatives to induce relaxation. For patients with anxiety when it comes to coming in, we have ways to help them feel better about being here.
Is it a Good Idea?If you find yourself afraid to go to the dentist, this may be a good plan for you. Anxiety or dental phobia can render a patient unable to set foot in a dental office or can cause difficulties when seeing the dental equipment. For some, even thinking about dentists can send them into a tizzy. This type of dentistry, though, is incredibly beneficial for these types of patients.
It doesn’t feel like you are sedated overly long, and it allows our staff to work much more easily, as the patients are highly cooperative. This allows multiple procedures to be done at one time and relieves much of the anxiety that patients feel once they see how quickly and easily it can all be done. It also makes it much more likely that they will come back for their routine visits as well.
If you find yourself plagued by anxiety, don't worry! We are sure to have an option that works well for you and allows you to get whatever work you need to be done, done. Here at Embree Dentistry, Dr. Heys provides sedation dentistry.
