In so many cases, patients with a history of significant oral health problems can trace everything back to fear of the dentist. Not a typical level of fear like many people have where you kind of dread going to the dentist but aren’t too afraid to get the routine care you need.
It’s a paralyzing fear that keeps them out of the dental chair altogether. Not for tooth fillings, not for dental crowns, not even for twice-annual dental cleanings and exams.
Without professional dental care, no amount of brushing and flossing at home will be enough to sustain your oral health over the long term, which is why our experts at the LANAP & Implant Center want you to know how we can help you overcome your dental phobia in Collegeville and South Williamsport, PA so your smile, and your life, can start fresh!
Give Your Smile A Fresh Start With Dental Sedation!
Here are some of the ways our comfortable environment, caring staff, and dental sedation options can help you reclaim your healthy, beautiful smile:
*We Create A Comfortable Atmosphere*
One of our top priorities is to maintain an office atmosphere that feels warm, inviting, and comfortable. Anyone who struggles with dental anxiety will have a hard time relaxing in a cold, sterile environment, which is why we’ve created a cozier setting at the LANAP & Implant Center.
It’s also why we offer private operatories and longer appointments. You’ll never be pressured or rushed during your visits with us! Our goal is for you to be happy and healthy, so it’s important to us that you feel supported from the start by our team of compassionate, caring professionals.
If you need more time, more help, or have questions about your dental treatment, all you have to do is ask, and we’re happy to cater to your comfort and ease your mind as much as possible.
*We Provide Two Levels Of Dental Sedation*
Being cozy is nice, but fearful patients need more than that to feel calm and relaxed during their dental treatment.
That’s why we’ve invested in the necessary study and training required to safely administer two powerful, effective types of dental sedation.
The first is oral sedation, a prescription pill that you take before your appointment so that by the time you’re in the dental chair, your body is completely relaxed. You’ll be awake and aware of everything that’s going on, but you won’t really care, which is ideal for patients with mild to moderate anxiety.
Because the sedative lasts long enough for you to get through treatment, you’ll need to arrange a ride to and from your appointment. For many patients, oral sedation is just the ticket for feeling relaxed and calm.
For moderate to a severe dental phobia, and for longer, more complicated procedures, IV sedation at the LANAP & Implant Center is a great way to get through your dental treatment more easily. You’ll be in a deep state of relaxation and won’t care about, or even recall, the details of your treatment experience, which for fearful patients, sounds like the ideal way to experience dentistry, right?
Try It For Yourself!
We hope that today’s blog has opened your eyes to the possibilities for your smile and your health when you rely on dental sedation under our watchful, expert care.
But we know that when it comes to a dental phobia, you’ll only be able to fully appreciate the benefits of sedation when you’ve experienced it for yourself.
Taking that first step is the hardest, so we go out of our way to make you feel welcome and supported from the moment you enter our office. We’ll work hard to make sure your experiences with us, from start to finish, are pleasant and positive.
You have nothing to fear and everything to gain at the LANAP & Implant Center!
