Dental Sedation Can Make Oral Care More Comfortable
Posted August 6, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
For anxious patients, the idea of dental care can have the potential to cause discomfort. If you suffer from this problem, you may put off necessary trips to the dentist to have a problem examined, or you might find yourself avoiding routine dental appointments. This has the unfortunate effect of putting you in a situation where you can be more likely to develop a problem that calls for involved treatment, like a root canal procedure. Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can offer dental sedation during your appointment if you struggle with anxiety. By relying on this support, you can have an easier time in the dentist’s chair, and feel more comfortable setting up a future appointment.
How long has it been since you went in for an appointment with your dentist? What are you missing out on when you skip care? Unless there are special circumstances that change your ideal timeline, you should plan to see your dentist every six months. If you skip appointments, or if you ignore problems with your oral health because you do not want to make an appointment, you face a greater risk for complications.
Every routine dental exam provides you with a careful teeth cleaning, and a close look at your smile. That examination can turn up problems, even if they are in their early stages, and are not causing obvious symptoms. Having problems with tooth decay and gum disease caught early can actually lessen the amount of care you need.
At Wager-Evans Dental, you and your family can enjoy great dental care. Our practice is proud to offer our services to those in and around the Reno area, and we can help you enjoy the kind of oral health support you need to maintain your healthiest smile. If you have avoided care due to anxiety, you can look forward to support through sedation dentistry, which can help you remain at ease when you are in the dentist’s chair.
