If you fear the dentist, you are not alone. Millions struggle with dental anxiety, and huge portions of them avoid visiting the dentist altogether. Although there’s no shame in fear, avoiding the dentist can lead to dental health problems and keep you from the treatment you need to maintain your oral health. If you struggle with dental anxiety, 5th Ave Dental can help keep your mind at ease during your next visit, thanks to sedation dentistry in Boca Raton.
Sedation dentistry is the use of medication to induce a calm and relaxed state in a patient before they undergo a dental treatment – particularly during oral surgeries and other complex procedures. Sedation can take many forms, from oral sedation in the form of pills or liquid before treatment to the administration of nitrous oxide through a respiration mask.
Many people suffer from some form of dental anxiety, but they don’t all require sedation to get through a procedure. However, if you experience extreme anxiety even during a routine dental check-up, to the point of interfering with the treatment itself, you might be a good candidate for sedation. Sedation dentistry is also a good option for younger patients who fear the dentist and struggle to remain calm during treatment.
The team at 5th Ave Dental strives to keep you relaxed while you receive our high-quality treatment. If you wish to learn more about our sedation options, call our office today!
