Dental patients from Raleigh to Charlotte and the surrounding areas can enjoy stress-free dental treatments by visiting either of The Holistic Dental Centers’ offices, conveniently located in Cary and Cornelius. We understand that dental anxiety can prevent people from getting the dental care they need, so we offer sedation to help anxious patients receive treatment comfortably.
Having a little, or even a lot, of anxiety about visiting the dentist is common. Nearly three out of four dental patients responding to a survey reported a least some anxiety about pending dental visits, and one in every ten of the anxious admitted that their fear was so great that they avoided dental care entirely. Whether you are just a bit nervous before your dental appointment, or fear stops you from seeking dental care, sedation can help.
It is possible for even the most phobic of patients to ease their fears and learn to be calm and feel safe while receiving dental care. Positive dental experiences can counteract misperceptions and past bad experiences, leading to improved feelings about treatment. The combination of our gentle, compassionate dental team, effective anesthesia, and calming sedation can change fearful patients’ perceptions about oral care.
For many years, medical patients have enjoyed the benefits of sedation to calm their nerves during treatment. We believe dental patients should enjoy the same level of care. We offer sedation because we want every one of our patients to be willing seek the care they need to enjoy a lifetime of optimal oral health.
When you are nervous, you are hypersensitive and your pain threshold is much lower. Fear triggers the release of adrenaline, which puts you in fight or flight mode. Your heightened anxiety can just melt away with sedation and trust in your providers. We want you to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Discuss your fears with us, and we will work with you to develop a plan incorporating sedation to give you the peace of mind and confidence to experience dental care in a whole new way.
