According to The Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology Journal as many as 20 percent of Americans have some form of sedation dentistrydental phobia. It prevents people from going in for yearly checkups and even causes them to delay treatment until tooth extraction is inevitable. Sedation dentistry can help ease your fears so that you can feel more comfortable getting the treatments you need, when you need them. Explore your sedation options with a cosmetic dentist in Garden Grove or Newport Beach, CA.

Where Do Dental Fears Come From?

As it is with most fears, dental anxieties usually start in childhood. A traumatic experience that happened in the dentist’s chair can stay with a patient for many years. In some cases, people are afraid of going in for dental treatments because society and popular culture promotes negative images and beliefs about going to the dentist.

Why You Should Conquer Dental Anxiety

Your teeth are an important part of your digestive system and the overall health of your body. Without healthy teeth, you can’t mash your food into smaller particles so that it is easier to digest. Untreated tooth and gum-related infections can spread to other parts of the body and contribute to other illnesses. So avoiding dental treatments due to fear can effect more than just the stability of your teeth. Your Garden Grove and Newport Beach cosmetic dentist understands these issues and can help make your next appointment comfortable and relaxed.

Help Easing Your Fear of the Dentist

The main fear that people have of the dentist is experiencing pain. Some people are so nervous that they don’t even want to sit in the waiting area. Sedation dentistry will numb the nerves so that you won’t feel anything while your dentist is working on your teeth. Oral medication can be prescribed before the appointment that will keep your mind off of your dental visit.
