Does Sedation Dentistry Help Conquer Dental Fears?
Most dentists in the U.S. approach patients with dental fears with pharmacological approaches which are doctor-centered, not patient centered. There is an increasing movement to perform sedation dentistry versus helping patients truly conquer their fears. With sedation dentistry, you go to sleep fearful and you wake up fearful. The fears are NOT addressed at all! In addition, the dentistry performed is rushed and often compromised because of the time limits of the anesthesia and the impracticality of sedating someone for short try in or fitting visits, so quality control steps are often skipped.
At the Dental Phobia Treatment Center of NY, a part of NYC Smile Spa, we treat your fears and phobias behaviorally. We recreate the dental environment in an unusually relaxed and supportive way, with all staff highly trained to help support your fears. We desensitize you to your fears over time as we painlessly perform dentistry and help you truly conquer your fears so that you can not only get healthy, but maintain that health over time. It is never too late! Modern dentistry has so much to offer, even if you have lost teeth, you will be surprised at the options you have to get healthy and restore your smile. If you know anyone who truly hates going to the dentist, tell them you have just the office for them!
