Did you know that 22% of American adults avoid visiting the dentist? If you’ve been skipping your dental appointments for the longest time, you may want to find out if you’ll make a good candidate for sedation dentistry in Pembroke Pines.
Research shows that about 50% to 80% of adults in the United States suffer from dental anxiety that ranges from mild to severe. If you feel extremely anxious at the idea of getting some dental work done, you may be tempted to avoid care altogether. Thankfully, with dental sedation, you can manage to sit through complex procedures while you enjoy a calm, relaxed, and pain-free dental experience.
If you have difficulty becoming numb even after the dentist administers a local anesthetic, you may still experience unusual levels of pain while you’re getting some dental work done. Your dentist may recommend sedation dentistry so that you won’t have to deal with any discomfort while you’re getting much-needed treatment.
Do you have a highly sensitive gag reflex that makes it difficult for you to sit still for an entire procedure? Perhaps you suffer from back, neck, or jaw pain that keeps you from holding your mouth open while your dentist examines your teeth and gums. Sedation is a great way to keep you relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures.
Your case may require a more complex or intensive procedure that will have you sitting in the dentist’s chair for hours. If you fear the prolonged pain and discomfort associated with your next appointment, you may want to ask your dentist about dental sedation.
Do you find it challenging to fit multiple appointments for various procedures into your busy schedule? Dental sedation can make it possible for you to complete several dental procedures in a single visit.
At Village Square Dental, we want nothing more than to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We understand that seeing the dentist may not be easy for many people. If you want to learn more about dental sedation, contact us today to request an appointment.
