Between 9-20% of Americans experience some kind of dental anxiety. If you are one of those that do, sedation dentistry may be your solution. Dr. Low and Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants in Battle Ground, Washington can help alleviate your anxiety and provide the gentlest care available.
There are many reasons some people have dental phobia and anxiety. Some of the more common reasons include:
At Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we want our patients to be comfortable, that is why we offer oral sedation. Oral sedation simply means you take a prescription pill prior to your visit to help you relax. The medication is a small, effective tranquilizer that helps people get past the fear enough to undergo treatment. Many patients remember very little about the appointment, others actually sleep through it! It has changed many patients’ lives as a result. If oral sedation is not enough, Dr. Low and his team work with an oral surgeon who can provide IV sedation as well.
“The whole staff was so personable and warm. Me being a dentaphobe, I went to a therapist to be able to come in. I felt no pain and feel comfortable to come in anytime with little to no fear. Thank you my new family dentist, Dr. Low.”
