If you suffer from dental anxiety, rest assured: you are not alone. Millions of Americans experience dental anxiety and, as a result, find themselves unable to undergo needed dental work.
Buffalo-area dentist Dr. Larry Evola understands that many people feel anxiety at the thought of a dental visit, whether it’s the sounds and sensations of the routine dental care you need to maintain good oral health or a cosmetic dentistry procedure to provide you with a bright, beautifully aligned smile. That’s why Dr. Evola and the friendly team at Forestream Dental are proud to offer a comfortable, relaxing environment and the option of sedation dentistry.
Many people avoid the dental care they need to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile because they experience anxiety at the thought of dental procedures. If you’ve put off your regular checkups or other dental treatment due to dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be right for you.
You may have heard the terms “sedation dentistry” and “sleep dentistry” used interchangeably, but these two phrases refer to entirely different procedures. Sedation dentistry involves the use of a safe sedative that is taken about an hour before your appointment. During your dental appointment, you will be deeply relaxed but still awake and responsive to questions and requests. The sedative generally lasts a total of six hours, leaving you with little memory of your treatment.
