Anxiety Free Dentistry: Before an Appointment

Anxiety Free Dentistry Turlock, CA

Seeing a dentist can not only improve the quality of your life, but it can also avoid the serious consequences of a tooth infection, and practicing anxiety-free dentistry can help you make it to the dentist without any worry. This is often the best choice for patients who neglect to see a dentist and risk getting tooth and gum disease and risk suffering from illness and disease in other parts of their body. Major health conditions like stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and breast cancer have resulted from the consequences of not keeping your teeth and gums healthy. 

This is an opportunity to get your teeth fixed, enjoy the benefits of a brighter smile, and avoid the health complications that arise when tooth decay goes untreated. You will need to take medication on your appointment and have a companion drive you to and from the dentist's office. Most patients experience no discomfort during their procedure, and they are sent home feeling relaxed, knowing they did something for their health and appearance in a way that they are comfortable with. 

Anxiety-free dentistry is safe

The medication you will receive will be an oral sedative and nitrous oxide regulated by the FDA. Any time you take medication, there is some risk, but it is extremely unlikely to experience any dangerous side effects. You just have to swallow a pill an hour or so before your visit and remember that someone else must drive you in. 

An experienced clinical team will be there with you at the dentist's office to make sure you are relaxed and completely comfortable. While you are relaxing the time away, you can rest assured that the clinical team will be there to monitor you closely and keep you comfortable. You will still be awake and responsive and able to listen and respond to your dentist's instructions. When it is over, you will likely have little or no memory of the visit.  

Correct years of neglect in just a few hours

In addition to avoiding most or all discomfort, you will also benefit from correcting years of neglect in just a few hours. This is one of the greatest benefits of choosing anxiety-free dentistry. When someone is awake and alert, this is not possible.

Several important procedures can be completed once you have chosen this form of sedation. You can have chipped, or damaged teeth fixed, have crowns replaced, and have your gums restored to good health. 

The dentist will be able to work faster

When you feel relaxed and sedated, you are also not feeling any anxiety, which means you will not be squirming around in the dentist's chair while the dentist is trying to work. This makes the whole procedure much easier for the dentist and allows them to work much faster and more efficiently. The dentist can do more to help you at one time, and you can correct years of neglect in one visit while feeling much more relaxed and at ease.
