Perhaps you’ve had a bad experience at the dentist or you’re scheduled for a procedure you’re totally unfamiliar with. Whatever the case, it’s common for patients to have anxiety about visiting the dentist. It’s estimated that 5 to 8 percent of Americans avoid the dentist out of fear and that more than 20 percent of Americans will only visit a dentist when it’s absolutely necessary.
At New Albany Implants, we don’t like to see patients put off major dental needs because they are afraid of the dentist.That’s why we offer a comfortable, friendly and professional atmosphere and practice sedation dentistry.
IV sedation is perhaps our most useful tool for people who have severe anxiety about their dental visits or procedures. This method is also known as sleep sedation. Patients who select our IV sedation can have entire complex procedures without ever remembering them. IV sedation allows our staff to complete procedures that would have otherwise taken multiple visits. We are one of the few practices in the area that is certified to render this service.
If you have anxiety about the dentist, explore our sedation options before skipping out on your next scheduled visit or procedure. Call us today for more information about our sedation options.
