Many people avoid dental appointments because they have a fear of the dentist’s office. But nowadays there are more options than ever that provide relief for dental anxiety.
Dental anxiety, which is commonly referred to as “dental phobia,” often causes people to enter into a distressed mode and/or a panic attack every time they merely think about going to the dentist. This leads some people to ignore their oral health, which is risky in the long run. Not seeing your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning can result in unhealthy teeth and gums, which can potentially lead to other serious medical conditions.
Our Jersey City dental office offers sedation dentistry as a method of relief for your dental anxiety.
Sedation dentistry provides the following benefits:
- Helps you relax during your dental cleaning and/or your dental procedure
- Allows you to remain calm during your entire dental treatment
- Reduces your overall fear of dental offices
Dr. Frank provides three types of sedation dentistry options. Based on your level of dental anxiety and the type of procedure you require, he may recommend nitrous oxide gas, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation to help you through your dental appointment.
