It’s no longer necessary to put off important dental treatment because of anxiety about the procedure. It’s very unfortunate that many patients avoid even the most basic dental treatments because they are afraid of dentists, and dental procedures. Dental phobia is a serious condition that affects thousands of patients. The result is a lack of proper dental care which leads to an unhealthy smile. The good news is that Novato Sedation Dentistry provides options that are designed to make the patient feel extremely comfortable. Now, dental anxiety is a thing of the past!
Sedation dentists are highly trained to make you feel comfortable in your surroundings. It’s a fact that many patients suffering from dental anxiety have gone to a dentist who was not considerate of their needs. A great way for patients to feel at ease with our team and their surroundings is to understand their underlying fear. This process will help to control and eliminate dental anxiety. For Sedation Dentistry to be most effective, a patient must feel that their concerns are being heard and taken into account.
We will now learn about many options that Sedation Dentistry provides for fearful patients. Inhalation, Oral, and IV (Intravenous) Sedation are among the treatments which greatly assist in providing an anxiety free experience throughout your dental procedure. When choosing the best sedation treatment option, there are many factors to be taken into consideration. Everyone reacts differently to each treatment option, so our staff will listen carefully, assess the situation, and choose the best treatment or combination of treatments for each patient.
It’s vital that patients understand that delaying necessary dental treatment will not only lead to greater problems and costly repair, but may be uncomfortable. To many patients’ delight, there is a controlled and regulated approach to the chosen level of sedation which allows us to monitor comfort levels during treatment. This process ensures that patients will feel refreshed and renewed post-procedure. Our Marin County Dentist is proud that Sedation Dentistry allows patients a wide array of treatment options that will make them comfortable enough to visit the dentist and undergo treatment
