3 Reasons to Consider Sedation Dentistry
Created on November 30, 2016
It’s no secret that there is a common phobia amongst adults and children everywhere: the dentist. With thoughts of giant needles and maybe even an auto shop tool used to pry open your jaw, many people let their irrational thoughts get in the way of getting their teeth cleaned on a bi-annual basis. Luckily, with the advancement and introduction of sedation dentistry, Dr. David Peck can help you stay calm, cool, and relaxed during your entire dental procedure. If you are scared of the dentist but are ambivalent of sedation dentistry, here are three reasons to consider giving it a go.
It’s Been Too Long
If you can’t even remember the last time that you got your teeth cleaned or x-rayed, then you know that it has been far too long. As recommended by the American Dental Association and by David Peck, you are supposed to get your teeth cleaned twice a year in order to ensure that your teeth are in the best condition possible. By getting your teeth cleaned every six months, you can help to protect them from getting things like cavities and can stop things like gingivitis from spreading before it’s too late.
Even the Thought of the Dentist is Too Much to Handle
If you notice that even the thought of the dentist gives you some anxiety and makes your heart speed up to a rate you didn’t even know was possible, then you should consider getting sedation dentistry. Designed specifically to curb this type of anxiety and help you relax during your entire dental procedure, sedation dentistry was created for people just like you.
You Need More than a Cleaning
Sedation dentistry isn’t just used for people who are too scared to get a dental cleaning, it’s also used for other procedures as well. If you don’t have anxiety about getting your teeth cleaned but you do about things such as getting a cavity filled, then you may want to consider sedation dentistry. With different doses available, you and Dr. David Peck can help you to pick a suitable option.
If you haven’t had dental procedure done or your teeth cleaned in who knows how long because you are too scared of the dentist, it’s time for you to consider sedation dentistry. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. David Peck today!
