October is the perfect month to start and finish talking about dental fear and the ways to move past it for a healthier, happier life.
Our team at Friendly Smiles Center wants to encourage you once again to open your mind to the possibility that your routine dental checkups can be positive, and even enjoyable so that your dental anxiety doesn’t keep you from having the healthy smile you deserve.
Here are three good reasons to try dental sedation as part of that journey:
*Dental Appointments Will Be More Relaxing*
Sweaty palms, butterflies in your stomach, and heart palpitations are just some of the physical manifestations of dental anxiety.
You also might clench your fists, tense your neck and shoulders, or grip the arms of the dental chair for dear life throughout your entire appointment.
Oral and inhaled sedation are designed to help you reach a state of physical relaxation so you don’t have to put your body or mind through that stress every time you go to the dentist. Knowing it’s an option will then build your confidence about appointments moving forward.
*You Can Get The Treatment You Need Without Stress*
You have to be proactive when it comes to maintaining good oral and overall health. There are certain things your toothbrush and dental floss can’t do, like removing plaque from your teeth. This is one of the reasons you visit the dentist every six months. But it’s also a time for us to look for developing or potential problems.
That way we can combat threats with quick, easy treatments rather than complicated procedures to treat more serious dental problems.
With sedation to help you relax, having your teeth worked on is so much easier and more relaxing, so you won’t have to let stress and fear keep you from getting the care you need.
*You Can Reach A Better State Of Health*
Imagine not being afraid of going to the dentist. Think about what you could accomplish for your smile if you weren’t scared or intimidated by restorative or cosmetic dental treatment.
Can you see yourself with a bright, healthy smile? Can you feel the pride and confidence that comes with not having a care in the world about what your teeth look like?
That life is possible when you reach a better state of oral health and no longer have to feel ashamed to show your smile.
