Do You Avoid the Dentist Because of Fear and Anxiety? We can help!
If anxiety is preventing you from maintaining a healthy dental treatment routine, talk with us about sedation dentistry. At Newcastle Dental we offer sedation dentistry for all our patients. Dental fear can lead minor tooth problems to become major oral health issues – and sedation dentistry can ensure you get the care you need without causing unnecessary stress or anxiety.
Sedation dentistry will allow you to remain calm, relaxed and comfortable during any dental procedure you may need. Depending on the level of sedation dentistry you choose, you will have very little or no memory of the treatment provided. You may be a candidate for sedation if you have:
- Dental phobia
- Dental anxiety
- A sensitive gag reflex
- A previous traumatic experience
- Extra sensitive teeth
- Difficulty getting numb
- Difficulty keeping your mouth open
- Dislike noises, smells and tastes associated with dental care
- Do not tolerate needles and shots
- Need extensive work or multiple procedures at one time
- Children who are fearful or very young
- Adults who fear all of some aspects of dentistry
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that patients often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.
Do not miss another routine dental cleanings, exams or necessary dental work because anxiety or a busy schedule. Depending on your unique situation our dentists will suggest the best sedation alternative for you. Call us today to learn more about Sedation Dentistry 705.436.5777
