Dental phobia is real and many people are dental phobic. It is one of the main reasons people avoid going to the dentist. At Westermeier Martin Dental Care we understand that when patients procrastinate on dental care, we may be seeing them for the first time for an emergency dental office visit. We prefer to see new patients before dental issues flair up. Sedation dentistry relieves dental anxiety for patients.
What do we do at our dental offices in East Aurora and Amherst, New York to alleviate dental phobia?
We offer a wide range of sedation options ranging from complimentary nitrous oxide anesthesia for any dental procedure through full sedation. Consider, too, when you’re fearful and are squirming in the dental chair it makes it difficult for the dentist to provide dental care because of your anxiety.
What types of sedation are offered?
Don’t assume every dental office provides nitrous oxide, especially free of charge like Westermeier Martin Dental Care does, or general anesthesia. You need to ask what types and levels of sedation your dentist provides, if any.
We are pleased to offer various levels of sedation to our patients because having options makes it easier for high anxiety patients to take the steps necessary to care for their dental needs and get back to a having a happy, healthy smile!
In addition to having access to sedation, having confidence in your dentist helps lower your anxiety. A dentist who has your best needs in mind will listen to you, provide information and help make you as comfortable as possible during your treatment visits.
