When you suffer from dental anxieties and fears, it can make even the most routine visit to the dentist difficult. Many patients who suffer from this debilitating fear, sometimes called dentophobia, will avoid the dentist at all costs, only visiting when the pain is more significant than their fear. Some will even go so far as to endure painful toothaches and dental conditions, causing it to get exponentially worse by refusing treatment.
The good news is there is a revolutionary procedure offered at ArtLab Dentistry to combat these fears called sedation dentistry. Also known as relaxation dentistry, sedation dentistry was created for those who feel anxiety at the thought of seeing a dentist by using safe methods to help you relax while undergoing dental treatment. The best part of all is, unless the treatment calls for general anesthesia, you will be awake and conscious during the treatment, just relaxed with the safe use of mild sedatives.
In addition to overcoming anxiety, sedation dentistry is used when one suffers from toothaches, headaches or TMJ disorders who find anesthesia ineffective or for those who simply want a painless and pleasant experience.
