If you tense up just thinking about going to the dentist, you may benefit from sedation dentistry at Mason Dental in Grapevine.
Millions of Americans stress out because they have to see the dentist, so if that sounds like you, you aren’t alone. It is referred to as dental anxiety. There is a more severe form, too, called dental phobia. In both, some people would rather skip the dentist altogether than sit down for a checkup. This puts their dental health at risk.
There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. It often stems from a bad experience they had with a dentist as a kid. Fear of pain is often involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.
Whatever the cause, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get through their dentist appointments. We offer two types:
- Nitrous Oxide. You also know this as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than a century and is highly effective.
- IV Sedation. As the name suggests, this is a sedative that is administered intravenously. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll need an escort for a ride here and back.
Whatever your issue is, it is essential that you do not compromise your dental health by skipping the dentist. Sedation dentistry from Mason Dental in Grapevine may be just for you. We offer a wide range of general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!
