Bakersfield, CA – Are you one of millions of Americans who fears going to the dentist? Dentophobia is extremely common, and in fact it’s estimated that as many as 75% of adults may have some level of fear or reservation about the dentist. If you’re nervous about an upcoming dental appointment, let me share with you a service that I offer that’s designed to ease stress during treatment: Sedation, specifically oral conscious sedation.
I value you as my patient and I want to ensure your comfort and safety in every aspect of your treatment. Oral conscious sedation allows me to do that. It will put you at ease so that you remain relaxed but awake throughout the appointment.
In fact, sedation care is often referred to as anxiety-free dental care. But how does it work, and how can it help you? Quite simply, oral sedative medication helps relax my patients by slowing the action of the central nervous system. You will remain aware of your surroundings, but are less responsive to external stimuli like the sound of the drill or the smell of materials. This also reduces any sense of pain.
Picture it: A two hour appointment goes by in the blink of an eye. As a trained sedation dentist, I want you to know you’re in a safe place, that you are not alone and there is no judgement – just care that is efficient, safe, and excellent.
Your dental health is important, and plays a big role in your overall health. No matter how long it has been since someone has visited the dentist, oral sedation dentistry allows me and any other appropriately trained Bakersfield dentist to create a safe and comfortable dental experience that can be customized for any individual’s emotional and physical needs.
Talk to me about your fears and concerns, and I will do everything I can to help you. The more you know about sedation dentistry, the more comfortable you will feel exploring it as a solution to any reservations you may have over visiting the dentist.
