Sedation Dentistry Can Help You Overcome Dental Anxiety

Posted .

If you avoid getting necessary dental treatment because of dental anxiety, we want to help.  At Rogue Valley Family Dentistry, we understand that patients can feel anxiety about dental procedures. We also know that it can become problematic because a healthy smile depends on ongoing care and preventative measures, including cleanings and possible dental restorations. Our goal is to help our patients have a healthy smile free from tooth decay and gum disease for years to come. So what can cause dental anxiety?

–Fear of the side effects of anesthesia.

–Fear of not being in control while sitting through a procedure.

–Fear of feeling vulnerable and helpless.

–Fear of experiencing pain, either from a past negative experience or from hearing others share their stories of negative experiences.

–Fear of receiving injections or that the injection won’t work.

At Rogue Valley Family Dentistry in Grants Pass, Oregon, we are pleased to provide nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, along with oral sedation and IV sedation to allow our patients to feel calm, comfortable and relaxed during their treatment.
