If fear has kept you from coming to the dentist, it’s time to come back. Sedation or “sleep dentistry” is an excellent way to combat anxiety, with sedation dentistry you can sleep while your work is being done. Dental sedation also allows for multiple procedures to be completed during a single visit. Our skilled dental professionals are expertly trained in Oral Sedation and will make your dental experience relaxing and positive. You will wake up from your Sedation Dentistry appointment both feeling refreshed and with a beautiful, healthy smile.
How Sedation Dentistry plays to combat Fear?
Why are people afraid of dentists? Possible reasons include:
- A childhood trauma at the dentist place
- Fear of pain
- Fear of needles
- Fear of the unknown
- Dental horror stories you may have heard from friend
Some patients are so afraid of dentists that they avoid coming in until the pain is so bad that they can barely speak. It’s an irrational fear that plagues rational people. At Dr Ali’s Denta Care we go out of the way to make the dental experience as comfortable and scare-free as possible.
Here are ways to combat Dental Fear?
At Dr Ali’s Denta Care. Team of Doctors will listen to your concerns , address them, and put you at ease.
Discuss your fears. Ask questions. Communication with your dentist and assistants is key. Dispel fear of the unknown and get reassurance from your dental team so you know exactly what to expect. You can agree on a signal if you need them to pause during a procedure.
Use relaxation techniques. Techniques like breathing deeply and slowly, yoga,listening to music, and imagining a calming scenario in your mind are great for calming anxiety.
Bring a hand to hold. Sometimes having a friend or loved one come along can provide enormous comfort. Your dentist will determine if having another person in the room is appropriate for whatever procedure being done.
Last resort: Your dentist may recommend mild relative analgesia such as nitrous oxide Conscious Sedation or depending on the procedure, general anesthesia.
Remember that fear is a learned behavior that can be unlearned. If you put of your regular dental check up until you’re in great pain or need extensive procedures, you’re reinforcing your negative concept of the dental treatment. As a valued patient, don’t hesitate to ask for the special attention you deserve!
