If you have a fear of visiting the dentist’s office, you’re certainly not alone. The worry of pain and discomfort is often what drives this common fear, although if you skip your twice-yearly dental checkup, you could end up in worse pain due to infections, broken teeth, and other concerning issues. At Georgian Shores Dental Centre, we want to help you feel more comfortable while you receive dental treatment. In order to make this happen, we provide sedation dentistry in our Midland, Ontario office location.
If you experience severe fear or anxiety when scheduling a dental appointment, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. This option can also help those who have trouble getting numb through the use of local anesthetic, individuals who experience soreness and pain in their jaws when receiving dental care, or patients who have suffered dental trauma in the past. If you struggle with the smells and sounds associated with dental procedures and treatment, you may benefit from using this option. When someone has a severe gag reflex, being sedated for a dental procedure can also minimize this reaction and allow the dentist to work more efficiently.
Sedation dentistry allows you to feel truly relaxed and comfortable in our office. All sedations performed in our office are handled by skilled and experienced medical professionals, ensuring your safety. If you’d like to take advantage of the benefits of sedation dentistry for your next treatment or procedure, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
