Whatever has been keeping you from making that long overdue dental appointment may no longer be an issue. The variations in modern sedation dentistry offer a solution appropriate to any patient who has experienced the anxiety that comes from an impending visit to the dentist no matter what the source may be, and there are many.
Dentistry didn’t use to be what it is now and many people have carried their memories of childhood experiences over into adulthood. Some have developed a serious dental phobia over time while others may have trouble feeling the effects of the local anesthetic or they may fear that the dentist or hygienist will disapprove of the obvious neglect. None of these reasons compare with the consequences that could come from continuing to avoid seeking professional dental care. Gum disease, for instance, has been proven to have a direct effect on your overall physical health. It has been found to be associated with an inclination toward heart disease or diabetes as well as premature births.
When you consider the fact that today’s dentists and hygienists are specifically trained to deal with patient anxiety and that sedation options are so extensive isn’t it time to make that appointment? Call The Dentistry Place today @ 303-974-4687 in Denver.
