Marin County Dentist Discusses Sedation/Sleep Dentistry

Written by Dr. McConnell on Mar 8, 2012

When you hear the word dentist, does a general feeling of anxiety overwhelm you? Do you have a fear of needles, fear of pain and discomfort, or very sensitive teeth?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone! An estimated 30-40 million adults avoid the dentist yearly because they find the idea of getting a check-up, cleaning, or dental work too stressful. If you fear or stress the dentist for any reason, your Novato Dentist can make your next visit to the dentist relaxing and stress free, with Sedation Dentistry!

Due to medical advances in oral sedatives, dentists can allow patients to be in a deep state of relaxation and make it possible for them to have dental procedures without feeling anything.  Our dental office uses the latest in sedation technology and patient care methods.

We will discuss the best treatment plan to ensure your dental experience is stress and anxiety free. We will tailor the treatment or combination of treatments to suit your needs because every patient is different, so selecting the correct method is of the utmost importance.

Oral health is a link to overall heath, and neglecting dental check-ups because of fear or stress can lead to long term dental issues. This in turn will lead to more visits with costly and difficult repairs.

We can help you reduce the stress and anxiety involved in coming to the dentist.
