Have you had a bad experience with a dentist? Maybe it was painful. Maybe it was frightening. Maybe it was just awful in general. But if a bad experience has kept you from maintaining routine dental visits or seeking desirable cosmetic services, now is the time to start considering sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is exactly what it sounds like: dentistry that takes place while the patient is sedated. This allows for optimal comfort by eliminating fear, discomfort, and anxiety, leaving in their wake a calm and relaxed state of mind and body, and making the service ideal for people struggling with dental phobia.
While sedation is perfect for nervous patients, fear alone is not the only issue this service can address. In fact, sedation dentistry is a good fit for patients who experience any type of discomfort when visiting the dentist. This includes:
- Sensitive Teeth
- Overactive gag-reflex
- General restlessness
- Difficulties getting numb
- A fear of needles
- And more!
If you avoid the dentist, for any reason, we would love to talk to you about your sedation options – and to help you achieve the strong and beautiful smile you deserve.
The Importance of Routine Care
Routine dental care is essential for long-term oral health. Issues such as decay, infection, and gum disease can occur rapidly – even with a solid at-home routine – making their early detection essential to preserve your natural teeth. By visiting our office every six months, we have the opportunity to detect small issues before they become major problems.
Avoiding the dentist places you at risk for oral health problems. It also prevents you from seeking cosmetic treatments, such as tooth whitening, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers, which can vastly improve the appearance of your smile.
Don’t you deserve better? We think so.
If you traditionally avoid dental services, regardless of your reasoning, we are confident sedation dentistry can help. Please call Desert Smiles at (602) 978-1790 to schedule your sedation dentistry consultation today. Located in Glendale, we welcome nervous patients from Scottsdale, Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, and all surrounding areas of Arizona.
