You Don’t Have to be Afraid of the Dentist

Recent research suggests that approximately 75% of American adults live with some level of dental fear or dental anxiety. Another 10-15% of American adults suffer from such extreme dental fear that they will steer clear of seeking professional dental even at the sacrifice of their oral health. Rather than live a life marked by unhealthy teeth and gums and helpless anxiety and fear, you have the power to   seek the help of a caring sedation dentist. Dr. Alex Denes can use this proven method for helping you feel calm and entirely at ease throughout your appointment.

Oral Health is Essential

Very often, intensely fearful people will seek dental care only when their problem has reached an emergency stage and requires complex, invasive treatment. Unfortunately, this can serve to reinforce the idea that visiting the dentist is an unpleasant experience. Furthermore, allowing your smile to reach a state of advanced ill health can have ramifications felt throughout the body. More and more research points to a direct relationship between oral health and the health of your whole body. Certain oral diseases, such as advanced gum disease, can actually increase your risk of suffering from diabetes, certain cardiovascular disorders, and strokes. BY seeking regular preventive care, you can enhance your overall well-being.

Safe, Gentle Sedation Dentistry

Oral conscious sedation consists of two doses of anti-anxiety medication, taken prior to your appointment, that leave you in a state of profound relaxation and detachment. Whereas before you suffered silently through an appointment or simply avoided making an appointment altogether, now you can pass the time in the dentist’s chair in total tranquility. This completely safe and effective treatment option is offered at minimal cost by Dr. Alex Denes to ensure that his patients can achieve an optimal state of oral health in the most comfortable manner possible.
