Millions of people are so tormented by fear and anxiety about dental appointments, that they can’t keep up with the routine care they need. Inevitably, their oral health suffers as a result.
Overcoming fear of the dentist, then, has to start somewhere if you want a healthy smile. We find it best to begin with understanding your fears.
These are only a few of the more common reasons for dental anxiety, but there is a way our team at Cupertino Family Dental Center can help you!
We’re letting you know about the best gift you can give yourself this season, and that’s a healthier mouth with a little help from inhaled sedation in our Cupertino, CA dental office.
Discover The Unexpected Gifts Of Dental Sedation
Good oral health gives you a better-looking smile and a better chance at enjoying a healthy body overall. That’s the first benefit of dental sedation. It helps you get through your dental appointments without anxiety, stress, or fear so can maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Here are a few other unexpected gifts!
Any dental problem that goes untreated is a threat to your oral health. It’s one of the reasons people with intense dental anxiety can’t keep their mouths healthy, because getting a cavity filled or a routine cleaning is too frightening.
Plaque buildup, cavities, or any other oral health problems will only get worse if you don’t do anything about it, which means you’re giving yourself even more reason to stress about complicated treatments down the road.
Dental sedation will allow you to feel completely calm and relaxed so you can get the care you need to stay ahead of oral health threats.
It’s not easy to get through a dental procedure if you find it hard to sit still or suppress a sensitive gag reflex. With someone’s hands and tools inside your mouth for a long period of time, it can be hard for anyone, really.
But laughing gas helps relax your body when your mind or involuntary physical responses won’t let you. It will take immediate effect, help you lay comfortably back in the chair, and get through your dental treatments with ease.
When you’ve had the chance to experience firsthand the effects of sedation before your dental procedure, it’ll help you feel more confident going into your next appointment.
Soon, you’ll come to the point where you don’t have to fear your dental treatments again and you’ll use that courage and peace of mind to maintain the routine care you need for a lifetime of better oral health.
The best gift you can give yourself this holiday season is a healthy smile, and that means finding the courage to get the routine dental care you need.
We can help you do that with our compassionate, patient-centered practice, comfort amenities, and inhaled sedation for more relaxing, pleasant dental appointments.
