Are You Afraid of the Dentist? You Might Consider Sedation Dentistry

Keeping your teeth healthy is an important part of overall health, allowing you to get the nutrients you need and protecting you from potentially serious infections. Unfortunately, more than 15% of American adults actively avoid going to the dentist out of fear. This severely limits the amount of preventative care your dentist can administer, and can often result in easily treatable problems becoming unwieldy. This in turn can severely impact your health in a variety of negative ways.

However, you don’t need to avoid the dentist just because you find the experience frightening or severely uncomfortable. If you are afraid of visiting the dentist than Sedation dentistry may be the right option for you. The Marlborough Dental Centre offers Conscious Sedation Dentistry. This is when a local anesthetic is used to numb the tissue and nerves, allowing you to block out pain during minor dental surgery. This is paired with a minor sedative to help you relax, easing your anxiety. You are fully awake during the procedure, but afterwards you will likely feel drowsy and not remember much of the experience.

Don’t let your fear of the dentist interfere with your health or your smile. Contact Dr. Popp and the team at the Marlborough Dental Centre to find out if sedation dentistry is right for you. Conscious sedation dentistry can be used for nearly any procedure, from routine cleaning and X-rays to root canals or other minor dental surgery. It is also excellent for patients with low pain thresholds, hyper sensitive teeth, or strong gag reflexes.

Don’t let fear or discomfort stand in the way of keeping your teeth healthy. Call the Marlborough Dental Centre today at 403.248.2066 to book your appointment and visit marlboroughdentalcentre.com for more information.
