Reduce Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry
Created on June 30, 2014
Are you one of the many Americans who suffer anxiety or fear before going to the dentist’s office? Patients of all types of backgrounds and experiences can become nervous about even the most routine dental check-ups.
The most important way to curb anxiety about your next dental appointment is to find a dentist office that is friendly, caring and that you can trust with your oral health care. Dr. Peck has the skills and experience necessary to put your fears to ease, and the caring staff at Taylor Street Dental Associates will ensure that your fears are being calmed along the way.
Another great way to avoid unnecessary anxiety about the dentist’s office is to practice diligent at-home dental care. By taking care of your teeth and avoiding additional treatments such as fillings and root canals – you’ll avoid the stress as well.
However, if you still find yourself anxious about an upcoming dental visit, consider requesting oral sedation prior to your treatment. Taylor Street Dental Associates is proud to offer this alternative to patients with severe anxiety about dental care.
With oral sedation you remain awake during your procedure but are unlikely to remember the sounds, sights and even smells of the dental clinic once you arrive home. Oral sedation is not anesthesia, it is simply a prescription medication that you’ll be given prior to treatment to aid in your relaxation.
Don’t let stress and anxiety prevent you from receiving the preventative dental care that you need. Contact Dr. Peck today and ask about our sedation dentistry options.
