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.
