Does the mere thought of sitting down in a dentist’s chair fill you with dread? Does it make you avoid the dentist altogether? If so, you’re among the millions of Americans coping with dental anxiety. At Endres Gateway Dentistry, serving Cincinnati and Loveland, sedation dentistry may be just what you need.
The reasons for dental anxiety are varied, but common issues are fear of injections, and fear of the after effects of injections.
We offer our patients two types of sedation.
- Nitrous Oxide has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years. It is safe and effective, wears off quickly, and will put you in a state of relaxation.
- Oral conscious sedation involves taking a sedative an hour or so before your scheduled procedure. It will make you very drowsy, and you won’t be very aware of what’s going on around you.
Sedation dentistry is valuable, because it can get you into the dentist’s chair when your instincts may be to avoid it. Skipping checkups and cleanings puts your dental health at risk. Better to have a little help getting through your appointment than getting a mouth full of cavities, or worse.
Don’t let anxiety prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Endres Gateway Dentistry serves patients in Cincinnati, Blue Ash, Loveland, and Montgomery, providing family and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment today.
