Dangers of delaying treatment because of dental anxiety
Fears, phobias, and anxiety related to visiting the dentist can take their toll on both your oral health and your well-being. If you’ve been skipping dental visits or delaying treatment because of fear, your anxiety could be preventing you from maintaining a healthy smile. Dr. Soonmyo Wheeler offers sedation dentistry to help patients get through treatment without stress. Whether you are getting a full arch of dental implants or something as simple as scaling and root planing, we offer two simple methods of sedation to help you get through your treatment anxiety-free.
Sedation dentistry options
We offer the following types of sedation at our practice:
We inject a numbing solution directly into the cheek and gums around the treatment area. You will start to get numb within minutes and the effects last for at least a couple of hours. Anesthetic is a safe and effective solution for numbing the tissues and we can use it to target both small and larger areas of the mouth.
Also known as laughing gas, this form of sedation can help you feel very relaxed and numb throughout treatment. It is one of the more powerful methods of sedation available and can be especially beneficial for patients who are extremely sensitive to sound, noise, and pain.
