Why You Really Shouldn’t be Nervous About Going to the Dentist
These days, it’s not abnormal to run across people who sincerely hate visiting the dentist office. In the majority of these cases, these individuals experienced uncomfortable dental care in their younger, formative years. Or, they delayed treatment as an adult, until the only option available was more invasive, complex treatment.
Dentistry has changed. Gone are the days where dentists expected you to tough it out when it came to completing your procedure. These days, if your dentist is not attentive to your needs or comfort, it’s easy to find one that is.
It’s Different in Carmichael
At Marconi dental group in Carmichael, we take patient comfort a step further. Not only are we attentive to your needs and concerns, we are extremely patient with you as we complete your procedure. Without feeling rushed, you can have the peace of mind that you deserve.
In addition to gentle techniques, we also utilize sleep dentistry procedures for maximum patient comfort. Sleep dentistry ensures that you are as relaxed as physically possible during whatever type of procedure you are having completed that day.
Sedation During Your Appointment
The level of dental sedation depends on your past experiences, medical history, comfort level, and the type of treatment being performed. If you are having a tooth pulled, you will obviously need an extra level of relaxation compared to something like a preventive cleaning.
Is it Safe?
Utilizing sedation during your care is extremely safe and effective. In fact, it’s something we provide on a regular basis. At Marconi Dental Group, we understand that sleep dentistry can help people overcome their dental phobia or anxiety, allowing them to access essential treatments that have been delayed for far too long.
We might recommend that you elect to have sleep dentistry during your next appointment if you:
- Feel nervous about going to the dentist or getting your teeth cleaned
- Dislike the sights, sounds, and experience of having dental work done
- Require a more advanced procedure, such as an extraction, implant, or crown
- Find it difficult to relax or sit still for an extended period of time
- Have a Family member with anxiety or special needs, who desperately needs to have access to care
- Prefer to complete all of your treatment and one visit, while you nap through the entire thing
Is Sleep Dentistry or Sedation Expensive?
Depending on the type of sedation that you choose, it may easily fit into your budget. In fact, not choosing sedation may even increase the cost of your dental care in the future. Why is that? Because you are more likely to delay treatment because of anxiety. Taking care of everything earlier on means that your treatment is more therapeutic and less invasive. Choosing sleep dentistry may wind up saving you money in the future.
Should You Feel Embarrassed Requesting Sedation?
Absolutely not. Marconi Dental Group understands that everyone has a different story when it comes to their dental care. Sedation is one of the ways we can help you actually look forward to your visits with us. Call us today to find out which sedation option is appropriate for you.
