If the thought of going to your local dentist’s office makes you want to hide under your bed, you’re definitely not alone – in fact, nearly 75% of the population reports feeling some level of anxiety or fear when faced with dental work. However, as recent clinical research has proven, regular check-ups are crucial to maintaining both your oral health and your overall health, as there is a strong link between the two. Issues such as gum disease and cavities can even increase the risk of several serious illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and more.
Here at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry, Drs. Mohanna and Georgy want to ensure that you receive the dental care quickly and effectively. However, your comfort is also a top priority for us. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry at our Sapulpa, OK office. Whether you’ve had a negative past experience with a dentist, are afraid of needles or drills, or simply feel uncomfortable in that big chair, sedation dentistry can help you lean back and relax while we transform your teeth!
How does it work?
Both Dr. Mohanna and Dr. Georgy are certified in sedation dentistry, as well as the use of oral sedatives that are specifically used to treat dental fear. We’ll simply prescribe you the medication before your appointment, as well as specific instructions on when to take it. Then, once you’ve ingested it, have a trusted friend or family member drive you to our Sapulpa office, where we’ll make sure you feel completely relaxed and at ease before we begin your procedure. While oral sedation dentistry doesn’t render you completely unconscious, most patients report that they remember little or even nothing about the dental work we’ve performed once it’s complete! However, you will need your companion to drive you home afterwards; the effects should wear off in a few hours.
We want to give you the whole, healthy smile you need and deserve! Contact our Sapulpa office today with any questions you have about sedation dentistry, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment.
