Is Dental Sedation Right for Me?
Conquer Your Fear Of The Dentist In Sacramento CA
Dental sedation can improve anyone’s dental experience, but it is an especially great option for patients who experience dental anxiety or have a fear of the dentist. Around 15% of Americans admit to having some level of dental anxiety that makes it difficult for them to get into the office for treatment. Dental anxiety can cause serious health issues, because patients who avoid the dentist are unable to receive the care they need to keep their smiles strong and healthy.
Dental sedation is also beneficial to patients who need of several procedures performed, or a longer, more complicated single procedure. With dental sedation at Ardent Dental Care, our Sacramento – Fair Oaks area patients achieve a state of relaxation that makes it easier for their dentist to get more work done in less time. You will be able to handle extended time in the office because you will be completely relaxed throughout the process, and your dentist will be able to perform your procedures more efficiently.
