How do I know if I need sedation dentistry?

If you are afraid of dentists to the extent that you avoid making appointments, or if you put off dental treatment completely, you are definitely a candidate for sedation dentistry.

Dental anxiety is a serious problem because it causes people to put their dental health in jeopardy by staying away from the dentist. It is essential that you receive consistent oral health care to avoid serious dental problems that can threaten your oral health and become costly and complicated to fix.

In fact, you most likely know that you can only put off dental treatment for so long. At some point, neglecting your oral health care because of dental anxiety is going to catch up with you. Delaying treatment can result in serious damage or even tooth loss.

At Childs and Childs Dentistry we value your good oral health, and we want to make it easy for you to get the care you need. We offer various sedation options like nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation or IV (intravenous) sedation.

We are very sensitive to your fears and will work with you to make sure you get the proper sedation that allows us to provide the important dental treatment you need.
