Going to the dental office has long been considered a chore by many, many people. It’s almost as if people expect bad things to happen the moment they walk in the door! Some patients have very legitimate reasons to feel afraid of the dentist, but we want you to remember that your fear shouldn’t drive your decisions, at least not in this matter.
Patients who were once terrified step into our New Albany office every day, but with time and a new way of doing things, they have been able to set aside that fear and get the dental care they need! We can help you do the same.
You see, we have a system here in our office that allows even the most frightened patient the opportunity to relax and enjoy their dental appointment. You can end your love-hate relationship with the dentist by learning more about your sedation options. Let’s take a look at how it’s done!
What You Love
Believe it or not, there are some very powerful reasons to love the dental office. If this was all there was to it, we have no doubt that patients would flock to the dental office for their cleanings and exams! Routine appointments give you things like this:
Feeling Clean – There’s nothing better than the post-cleaning clean! Your teeth feel smooth, fresh, and beautiful. It’s hard not to smile after you’ve had a great dental cleaning.
Healthy Teeth – Those routine appointments give you another advantage: health! You will know that your teeth are free of infection and decay. That’s another great feeling!
Great Smile – People notice when you have healthy, clean teeth. You smile more because you feel more confident. Who doesn’t want to smile more freely?
What You Hate
We know that there are also reasons to really hate the dental office! Let’s take a look at a few of those reasons before we talk about how to overcome these fears and get back to a love-love relationship!
Feeling Afraid – No one likes to be afraid, and they hardly ever want to ADMIT that they are afraid. The dental office often forces you to do both, and patients hate that.
Anxiety for Days – If you know your appointment is coming up, you’ll probably begin to feel anxiety in the days before. The constant worry and stress can take a toll.
Is it Going to Hurt? – One of the greatest hates of the dental office is the association with pain. Patients are afraid that every movement in their mouth will cause pain, and that makes for a very unpleasant experience.
Sedation Dentistry Changes Your View
Sedation dentistry is here to change the way you view the dental office. You see that list of hates that we just mentioned? They can all fade away with the use of sedation! We offer different levels of sedation, including oral conscious sedation and IV sedation. Oral conscious sedation allows you to begin relaxing before you ever leave your house, and IV sedation allows you to rest comfortably through your entire procedure.
Create a Love-Love Relationship
It’s time to change your love-hate relationship into a love-love relationship! You can love all aspects of your dental appointment with the use of sedation dentistry. Pretty soon, the only thing you’ll be wondering is how long before you get to see the dentist again!
Get Healthy Teeth – You will still enjoy the benefits of having a clean, healthy smile. The amount of confidence that gives you is astounding!
Know What You Can Expect – You can love the dental office again because you will know exactly what to expect. There is no fear of pain because you will know that sedation takes care of everything for you!
Feel at Ease! – Finally, you can call and make an appointment with complete ease. You have retrained your brain to no longer fear the dentist but to look forward to what is coming your way!
