Fear Free Dentistry
Portland Maine Sedation Dentist
Let’s face it, many, MANY people are just plain scared to go to the dentist. In fact, according to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, 30% of the population avoid going to the dentist simply because they’re afraid. And another 75% of adults experience at least some form of mild to severe fear of the dentist.
In other words, if you’re afraid of the dentist YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
However, in spite of any fears you might have about going to the dentist, your oral health is one of the MOST important factors in determining your overall health and wellness.
Fortunately, there is a way you can receive the critical dental care you need without having to experience any of the fear, worry, anxiety, or stress typically associated with a trip to the dentist. And not only does it make going to the dentist a less stressful experience, but it can actually turn your next visit into an enjoyable experience!
What is this miracle dental solution? It’s called Sedation Dentistry. Morgan Dental Care has a trained sedation dentist ready for your visit.
Sedation dentistry involves various means of helping patients reach a relaxed state, allowing them to receive the important dental care that good overall health requires. While it’s often used for long or more invasive dental procedures, it is also a GREAT solution for patients that experience significant levels of anxiety from even a simple routine checkup. In addition, it is useful for people who have a problem gagging, who have difficulty getting numb or who just hate to sit still for the length of time it takes to get their dentistry completed.
Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a great solution for anyone that suffers from fear or anxiety from going to the dentist. Additionally, anyone that has put off the important dental care they need, creating a backlog of dentistry that needs to be done, could benefit from sedation dentistry, because it has the potential of allowing them to get completely caught up in one or two visits.
Problems for which sedation dentistry offers a solution:
- Fear of the Needle
- Can’t stand drill Sounds
- Don’t like the taste or smell of the dental visit
- Difficulty getting numb
- Bad experiences with a dentist creating anxiety
- People that want to get a lot of dentistry done in as few appointments as possible
Sedation Dentistry Helps Minimize Anxiety
While there are many benefits of sedation dentistry, one of the primary benefits is how it allows people to receive the critical dental care they need in a relaxed, comfortable state. A relaxed patient makes it easier for the dentist to perform the necessary tasks required to ensure maximum oral health.
