Does the thought of sitting in a dentist's chair scare you? Do you need dental help but fear going to see a dentist? You are displaying the classic signs of dental anxiety.
A study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine reveals that approximately 36% of Americans have dental anxiety while 12% suffer from extreme dental fear.
Courtesy of sedation dentistry, you no longer have to live with dental fear or pain.
Dr. Sasha Mahabir, DDS, and Dr. Rahul Gandhi, DMD, at South Friendswood Dental Associates in Friendswood, Texas, are experienced dentists that use sedation dentistry to relieve dental anxiety and fear and keep you calm and relaxed during dental procedures.
In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at why you should consider sedation dentistry.
Our dentists at South Friendswood Dental Associates in Friendswood, Texas, use mild to moderate sedatives to ease your dental anxiety and help you relax during dental procedures.
The sedatives we use ensure that you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment.
People with tooth sensitivity usually also experience dental anxiety and find it hard to sit through a dental procedure. Sedation dentistry can provide relief and manage your sensitivity, helping you stay calm and comfortable.
Our experienced dentists at South Friendswood Dental Associates in Friendswood, Texas, understand how a sensitive gag reflex can keep you from reaching out and receiving the dental care you need.
Using sedation, your gag reflex can quickly be brought under control so that our dentists can carry out the required procedures without delay.
Some patients have a lower threshold for pain and this may prevent them from receiving the dental care they need. Sedation dentistry includes various methods to numb the region where treatment is required and keep any pain or discomfort away.
