Forget Your Fears with Sedation Dentistry

Posted on January 26th, 2016

SedationDon’t be Afraid of the Dentist!

We at Dassani Dentistry know that some Houston folks avoid the dentist’s chair like the plague. According to studies at the Dental Fears Research Clinic at the University of Washington, as much as 8% of Americans are too afraid to go to dentists and 20% are too anxious to visit a dentist for anything other than an emergency. Dr. Dassani understands that dental anxiety prevents a lot of people from getting the care they need, so we’ve designed our entire practice around your comfort. Read on to find out about how we can help!

Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist

First of all, don’t feel bad if you fear the dentist. It’s very common and understandable. Your mouth is sensitive and private, and having someone else poke around in there can be traumatic. However, there are a ton of things we do at Dassani Dentistry to make sure that every patient feels safe and comfortable. That means that from the waiting room to Dr. Dassani’s chair, you are in good hands! We’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that your experience is a pleasant one.

Sedation Dentistry

In addition to using topical anesthetics to numb you before shots and checking constantly to make sure that you are comfortable, Dassani Dentistry offers a number of sedation dentistry options that will ease your anxiety. How does sedation dentistry work? Depending on your preference, Dr. Dassani will give you medication before or during your treatment. Although you will not be asleep during the procedure, the sedatives will help relieve your anxiety and put you into a relaxed, comfortable state. Local anesthetic shots will still be necessary, but you’ll hardly notice them or any of the dental work going on. Just make sure you have a friend or family member to drop you off and pick you up.

It’s All about Your Comfort

Whether or not you choose one of our many sedation options, know that we are committed to giving Houston residents the highest quality dental care, and that means premium services and complete comfort. Want to know more about how we can help get rid of your dental anxiety? Give us a call!
