How do you feel about dental treatment? When it comes to the dentist’s office, we all fall under different categories of comfort (or discomfort). For some patients, an appointment is no big deal. They schedule regularly, and visit the office without feeling any sort of anxiety.
For other patients, it’s an entirely different story. Knots in the stomach, a growing sense of dread, and office-related fear lead them to regret making appointments, and sometimes even cancel their exams. This leads to cavities and gingivitis taking hold, and ultimately worsening the very anxiety that caused them. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to happen to you – with sedation dentistry in Glen Burnie, you can change the way you view the office, and ultimately improve your oral health.
Is Sedation Dentistry Right For Me?
If you think that you might benefit from sedation, then it’s probably a good idea. That is, if dental anxiety affects your treatment process or your daily life. You should never be forced to put up with feelings that detract from your patient comfort.
We understand dental anxiety, and we want to help you through it. If you’re ever uncertain about something, or fearing an office visit, we encourage you to let us know about your anxiety. This way, we can understand the place you’re coming from, and recommend the appropriate form of sedation.
Choosing Glen Burnie Sedation Dentistry
Maryland Family Dentistry offers a variety of dental sedatives. When sedation is paired with anesthesia, both your nerves and your potential to feel pain are dealt with for the length of treatment. You won’t worry, and you won’t feel twinges. Depending on your needs, we’ll recommend one of the following:
- Nitrous oxide – Inhaled along with oxygen to induce relaxation
- Oral conscious sedation – Pill taken prior to the appointment to relieve anxiety
