SedationIf you're afraid to go to the dentist, you are truly not alone; "30% of Americans avoid dental treatment due to fear."
The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation reports that millions suffer from what is know as “dental phobia”, stating that “30% of Americans avoid dental treatment due to fear”. If fear is keeping you from routine dental care, you owe it to yourself to learn more about sedation dentistry at All Smiles Family Dental Center in central Vermont. Avoiding the dentist will inevitably make matters worse over time by harming the functionality of your teeth, mouth, and smile, likely compromising your overall health. Through what is known as “sedation dentistry”, the All Smiles dentist can provide patients with a comfortable and relaxing experience that enables individuals who are afraid to go to the dentist with an anxiety-free experience.
Through the use of sedative medications, your All Smiles dentist establishes a relaxed and calm state, so you can receive the recommended regularly scheduled preventative care or necessary restorative treatments you desire or need. These medications create such a comfortable experience for our patients that procedures taking hours to perform often feel like a few minutes. Many sedation patients don’t even remember what took place during the visit! If you’d like to change the appearance of your smile through orthodontic procedures like braces or by the many cosmetic options available to you, but are afraid or anxious about undergoing long dental procedures, you need to learn more about sedation dentistry.
