You probably know someone who avoids dental appointments. Anxiety over dental work is a common problem. The mouth is a sensitive place and many people have a tough time enduring even moderate pain.
In some cases, anxiety results from a larger issue. Any existing condition that causes physical pain can make it tough for patients to relax in a dental chair. For example, TMJ, arthritis, or fibromyalgia can make restorative work a terrible experience.
Even without a preexisting condition, trusting dentist long enough to treat your teeth can be difficult. Many people have had bad experiences in the past that left them in distress.
We love being able to offer our patients relief from anxiety with sedation during procedures. Sedation at Central Kansas Dentistry requires no needles. Patients simply take a pill prior to their appointment. This method for treating dental anxiety leaves patients calm and comfortable. We also encourage apprehensive patients to sit in our massage chairs before and after appointments. It eases away muscle tension so they can leave feeling pain-free.
If you have any questions about how sedation dentistry can be beneficial to you or your family, please contact Central Kansas Dentistry today.
