Dr. Sid Solomon understands that very few patients love visiting the dental office for treatment. In fact, many patients even become anxious or fearful in anticipation of a visit to the dentist. This reaction may result for any number of reasons including a difficult past experience, a general fear of needles or even a dislike of having someone else’s hands near your face or mouth.
If this reaction to dental treatment sounds all too familiar to you – rest assured that Dr. Solomon makes your safety, relaxation and comfort his top priorities during your treatment. For those patients who need a little extra help relaxing during treatment, our office is proud to offer sedation dentistry services. Sedation dentistry is also a great option for patients who normally do not mind receiving dental treatment, but because of sudden infection or dental trauma now find themselves fearful of a lengthy and painful dental procedure.
Unlike anesthesia, sedation dentistry allows the patient to remain awake during procedures and even follow instructions. However, sedation does have a mild amnesic affect in that it helps block memories of the sounds, sights and even smells of treatment that may cause your fear or discomfort. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to not only relax during treatment, but can also save you time and money by allowing Dr. Solomon to complete your treatment in one visit despite your anxiety.
Don’t let fear keep you from receiving much needed dental care. Contact our office today to learn more about sedation dentistry.
