The five most terrifying words in the English language should not be “You’re going to the dentist.” Still, as many as 75% of American adults suffer from some degree of dental fear. This fear can be severe enough to cause people to delay seeing the dentist, allowing a small problem time to swell into a much bigger problem. Of course, having bigger problems makes a dental visit more unpleasant, feeding the cycle of fear and avoidance.
If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from fear of visiting the dentist you don’t have to suffer or forgo dental visits anymore. Comfort First dentistry allows patients who are nervous, uncomfortable, or unable to sit still during a dental cleaning or procedure to comfortably have those procedures done.
Our office provides light sedation with nitrous oxide to make you comfortable and make your experience of visiting the dentist as simple as taking a short nap. If needed, we can even give any shots of needed numbing or pain relief medication while you are sedated, making a fear of needles no reason to delay care.
For patients who have complicated medical conditions that make it difficult for them to sit still for a cleaning or for a filling, or when a young child needs extra attention to their teeth, sedation dentistry may be an option that allows these patients to get their work done sooner rather than later providing optimal results.
For adults and older patients who just don’t enjoy visiting the dentist, Comfort First dentistry can take the anxiety out of a scheduled visit. There’s no need to worry about the sounds or smells of a drill in your mouth if you’re pleasantly napping through the entire procedure.
If you are interested in Comfort First dentistry, please call our office and let us know. We will work with you to make sure any medications you are given in our office are safe for your particular medical situation and considering any complicating medical conditions you may have.
Don’t put off needed, important dental care just because it’s unpleasant. Try Comfort First dentistry and see how pleasant your next dental visit can be.
