It is estimated that as many as 75% of the adult population in the United States experiences some degree of dental anxiety. All fear is real, as is your dental fear. Your personal brand of dental fear keeps you in physical pain and in dental shame.
It is relatively easy for a conscientious dentist to heal your physical pain. It is, however, a challenge for a dentist to help you heal your emotional pain associated with dentistry.
At Inland Family Dentistry, we understand this common fear, which is why we wanted to take some time to specifically address an often misunderstood part of modern dentistry: sedation & surgical dentistry.
While there is often much emotional healing and trust building that needs to take place, we’re going to explore everything you need to know about dental sedation and the three main types we use to ensure each patient is as comfortable as possible.
