Troy Sedation Dentist Helps Patients Overcome Dental Anxiety

Written by Dr. Bentley on Sep 1, 2015

Millions of people cannot face the prospect of receiving dental treatment without feeling complete dread. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Sacrificing your oral health because of dental anxiety is dangerous, but also unnecessary. The professional team at our Troy Sedation Dentist office combine compassion and understanding of your concerns with effective oral conscious sedation techniques that allow you to take back control of your oral health.

Compassionate Care

Many people develop dental anxiety because of a negative experience they have had with a dentist in the past. Unfortunately, this often results in more serious and complex problems as your oral health degrades. Our team understands how important good oral health is to your overall well-being. We make it a priority to understand where your anxiety originates to help you take steps toward a positive approach to your dental care. 

Sedation Options

At our Troy Sedation Dentist office, we offer oral conscious sedation that helps you feel calm and relaxed before, during, and after treatment: 

Patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety benefit greatly from oral conscious sedation. We prescribe a calming medication that should be taken about an hour before your appointment. By taking the medication beforehand, you will feel relaxed when you arrive at our office. 

It is important to note that, if you are sedated, you will need to make arrangements for transportation to and from your appointment.

If you’d like more information about our comfortable dentistry options, please call to make an appointment with our dentist to discuss your concerns.
