I see it all the time. Apprehension. Dread. Nervousness. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), nearly 1 in 3 people avoid dental visits due to fear. Without regular visits, oral health continues to deteriorate over a person’s lifetime. This can lead to health problems ranging from tooth sensitivity to gum disease as well as more chronic issues such as heart disease and diabetes, and social uneasiness about odorous breath or feeling embarrassed to smile. The good news is the dental industry has made tremendous advances in order to help reluctant patients receive the care they need. We do this through the comfort of sedation dentistry.
And the good news about sedation dentistry is that it allows those who have been neglecting their oral care to make major advances in the health of their mouth and smile in just one visit. With sedation dentistry, I can perform complex dental treatments in one appointment where it would have taken multiple visits to achieve the same results in the past.
So how do you decide if sedation dentistry is right for you? If you feel anxious about coming to the dentist, have sensitive teeth, suffer complex dental problems, or have an easily triggered gag reflex, talk to us about sedation. Or if you know anyone like this, help them by referring them to us. Call 770-623-8750 or visit www.JohnsCreekSedationDentist.com.
