Don’t Let Fear Of The Dentist Compromise Your Oral Health

sleep dental Yuma

Fear is a powerful emotion. If you have claustrophobia, you take a pass on cave exploration. If you have a fear of heights, you avoid sky diving. People with dentophobia fear dentists, and avoid dental care at all costs. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ, we can help such people do something about it.

The problem with avoiding the dentist is that it puts your dental health at risk. Some people avoid the dentist entirely, while others only manage appointments when a condition has gotten so bad, they can’t take it anymore. At that point treatment may be extreme – something that might have been prevented with regular checkups.

If you are coping with dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be just the answer you need. We offer two types of sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide. Popularly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide puts you in a very relaxed state. It is safe and effective, works quickly, and wears off quickly. It’s been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
  • Oral conscious sedation involves taking a sedative before your scheduled appointment. It puts you in a deeply relaxed state. This does not wear off quickly, and you’ll need an escort to and from your appointment.

If you or a loved one are coping with dental phobia or anxiety, please schedule an appointment with us at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ. Our sedation dentistry has helped patients all over Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton get the dental care they deserve. They come to us for complete general dentistry, and much more.
