Have you ever heard of Sedation Dentistry? Does the idea of having your teeth professionally cleaned give you goosebumps? Do you prefer the suffering of a significant toothache versus stepping one foot in a dentist’s office? You are not unique. Many people have such a dental phobia about going to the dental checkup that they typically opt-out of oral treatment.
For those who avoid their dentist, sedation dentistry could be the answer to ease their anxiety. Sedation is often used for everything, from invasive procedures to routine tooth cleaning. How a dentist uses, it will depend on the severity of a person’s fear.
Oral sedation enables Dr. Kumar T. Vadivel DDS to perform simple and complex dental procedures in a safe and pleasant environment for patients who have dental phobias.
