What Should I Do if I’m Scared of the Dentist?

The team of Cedar Mountain Dental see many patients regularly in the area of Newington, CT who are uneasy about visiting the dentist on a regular basis. They may have dental anxiety, regardless of their age or personal experiences. When patients have a fear of visiting the dentist, it is important that they are honest with our team so solutions such as sedation dentistry can be discussed.

What is sedation dentistry?

Drs. Zach Korwin and Gary Toubman explain sedation dentistry as a method of sedation that allows a patient to get necessary dental work completed without fear or anxiety. Sleep dentistry can be used for any type of dental appointment, even a cleaning, to ensure patients are calm and relaxed in the dental chair. Our practice offers several options for sedation, including:

Determining the level of sedation for you requires you to be candid with our team. We do not judge patients with dental anxieties in our practice. Instead, we listen to their fears, speak about the options available, and ensure that each visit to the chair is a positive experience for the patient. We work with patients to choose the level of sedation that meets their needs. For patients with mild anxieties, nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” may be best. Patients with severe fears, or those undergoing extensive dental work, may benefit from deep sedation or general anesthesia. All of these sedation methods are offered in our practice and can be administered before and during dental appointments for optimum relaxation!
