How can sedation dentistry benefit me?
If you are one of the millions of people who are anxious about visits to the dentist, sedation dentistry can make all the difference in the world. Primarily, sedation dentistry allows you to have important dental treatments done with little or no stress or worry.
There are a number of reasons why people experience dental anxiety, but the most common is that they have had an upsetting experience with a dentist in the past. If this has happened to you, we understand your fear, and will work with you to help you move past that fear.
Sometimes, just understanding what is happening during a treatment may be enough to help alleviate your fears. If your anxiety is more serious, we can offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help keep you calm during treatment. In fact, most patients do quite well with it, and have little or no memory of the procedure afterwards.
If you suffer from dental phobia, please don’t put off dental treatment. The team at our Pelham dental office is very compassionate and caring and can help you overcome your fear so you can get the treatment you need. Please contact our office, and we will be happy to provide more information about the ways in which sedation dentistry can benefit you.
