Calming Dental Fears and Anxiety in Lewisburg By Larry Winans, DMD

You’re an adult and you’re afraid of the dentist. And you’re embarrassed to tell anyone. So what do you do? You just avoid the dentist altogether.

Not only does skipping your regular dental checkups and cleanings put your teeth at risk, it puts your health at risk too. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Sedation dentistry offered at my Lewisburg dental practice can erase your fears safely and effectively.

Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, helps you completely relax during your dental appointment. In fact, you’ll be so relaxed you may even sleep through your visit. This treatment method is ideal for patients who:

  • have anxiety or fear
  • have difficulty getting numb
  • have sensitive teeth
  • have a sensitive gag reflex
  • hate the sound of the drill or thought of needles
  • need several dental treatments completed in a short time.

If you fit any of these descriptions, call my Lewisburg dental office and ask about sedation. It’s easy. All you have to do is take a prescribed medication prior to your appointment. By the time you arrive, you’ll feel completely relaxed and calm.

If fear has kept you from the dentist, it’s time to get back with comfort and confidence with sedation dentistry.
