Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona
Millions of people from every walk of life are affected by dental fear or anxiety.
Oftentimes, people who experienced painful, traumatic dental work in the past now avoid much-needed care of their teeth and gums because returning to the dentist induces overwhelming negative emotion.
If you're someone who experiences anxiety around visiting your Phoenix-area dentist, consider this story from one woman who is a great candidate for sedation dentistry administered by Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry in Glendale, Arizona.
Although her story is real, for the purpose of sharing her experience with the public, here we will give her the fictional name Carol.
We all know that daily oral care and regular checkups are the best paths to long-term dental health. But some patients are so afraid of visiting the dentist that they put off the care they need. With sedation dentistry, this need not be the case. Dr. Donald Wilcox is a Scottsdale sedation dentist with the knowledge and tools to make your next visit to our office painless and relaxing.
Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to ensure your absolute comfort during even the most complex dental treatments. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Wilcox can help ease anxiety, which can be very helpful if you suffer from dental phobia. However, the oral sedation we offer is not limited to this singular purpose. Sedation dentistry allows patients to become completely relaxed while still remaining alert enough to respond to general directions.
While everyone experiences pain sensations differently, there is no reason your dental treatment should cause discomfort. However, dental phobia, general anxiety, sensitive teeth, and previous bad dental experiences are enough to keep many people from seeking the restorative dentistry services they need and the cosmetic dentistry services they deserve. If fear of pain has kept you from seeking important dental treatments, Dr. Wilcox may have just the solution you have been waiting for.
