Sedation Dentistry at Comfortable Care DentistryWhy Choose Sedation Dentistry?
Odontophobia or fear of visiting the dentist is a common fear shared by nearly half of all Americans. The fear of visiting the dentist prevents people from getting the necessary routine and preventative dental care that they need to maintain healthy teeth. Forgoing visits to your dentist not only puts you at higher risk for your oral health, but it allows your oral health problems to build to the point when drastic dental treatments become necessary.
The choice for anxious patients is simple, use sedation dentistry to alleviate your fears and get the dental care you need. It’s safe, comfortable, and allows patients requiring extensive dental procedures to have them done often in one appointment.
What is Sedation Dentistry?

The experience of your dentistry visit will most likely not even be remembered, and many patients state that they feel like they were only asleep for a few minutes. Your team at Comfortable Care Dentistry will constantly monitor your vital signs to make sure you remain in your relaxed state until your dental work is done. The process is uncomplicated, and allows you to get the dental care you deserve without the anxious feeling of sitting in a dentist’s chair.
