Overcome Dental Fear In 2018 With Sedation Dentistry [BLOG]

Posted on January 11th, 2018

Are you ready to regain control of your oral health?

Then let our team at Atlanta West Dentistry help you make 2018 the year you finally overcome dental fear and get the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Today, we’re talking about how we can support you with our caring team and sedation dentistry in our Marietta, GA dental office.

Why You Should Overcome Dental Fear In 2018

*Because It’s Best For Your Oral Health

Just the thought of a dental cleaning and exam is enough to keep fearful patients away from the dentist.

That means those with dental anxiety are at a much higher risk for oral health problems such as cavities, infections, and gum disease.

Over time, your teeth and gums can reach an unhealthy state and, consequently, can take on unsightly stains and imperfections that leave you feeling ashamed and embarrassed about your smile.

Lack of professional dental care is dangerous, plain and simple. That’s because brushing and flossing aren’t enough to prevent serious oral health problems. Gum disease can take a long time to fester in your mouth before you see any evidence of it.

It’s crucial to let a skilled dentist and hygienist clean and exam for your mouth at least twice a year. We have the tools to catch early signs of issues and eradicate the problem before it takes a more serious toll on your health.

*Because You Deserve A Beautiful Smile

Your oral health is our top priority. But we also care about how you feel about your smile.

It’s not enough for us to just make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. We want you to love what you see in the mirror, which is why we love being able to transform patients’ smiles with cosmetic dentistry.

If you’ve been suffering from dental anxiety, even a simple cleaning and exam ignites fear, no less longer, more complicated cosmetic procedures. This means too many people settle for a smile they don’t like just because they think they can’t endure treatment to make it more beautiful.

We can change that at Atlanta West Dentistry!

By choosing one of our three sedation methods, you can build confidence about dental treatment so that by this time next year, you can pursue the cosmetic treatment you need to have a brighter, more beautiful smile.

Sedation Options That Work!

You’ve probably heard at some point about sedation dentistry, but not every dental practice is able to offer the kind of comfort and relaxation options that Dr. Watson and our team can.

At Atlanta West Dentistry, you’ll be greeted by our warm, friendly staff and can enjoy complimentary beverages in our waiting area.

We’ve also created an environment that looks and feels much cozier than your typical dentist office.

But we certainly don’t stop there. We know exactly what it feels like for fearful patients who are used to being rushed through their appointments. That’s why we take our time so that you feel welcome and well-cared for.

You can also feel more comfortable with blankets and pillows while you watch television in your own private operatory.

Next, you’ll have the option of relaxing with sedation dentistry while you receive treatment.

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas as it’s commonly called, and oral medication are two highly effective methods that truly work for those who feel mild to moderate anxiety.

We’re also proud to offer you IV sedation, which is the strongest form of medicinal relaxation that you’ll find.

It takes specialized training to be able to administer IV sedation, and Dr. Watson is a dentist who’s gone above and beyond to bring this method to our Marietta, GA dental office.

Take The First Step!

Cancelling a dentist appointment once or twice because of a scheduling conflict isn’t a big deal. In today’s world, we lead extremely busy lives. Sometimes things come up we can’t anticipate.

But that’s not the same as cancelling your trips to the dentist because you’re too nervous or afraid. Worse, it’s not the same being too fearful to avoid making dental appointments in the first place.

That is dental anxiety.

And the good news is that it doesn’t have to keep you from having the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.

With our caring staff and sedation options at Atlanta West Dentistry, you can make 2018 the year you finally get back in control of your oral health.
