There are many reasons a person might avoid getting the dental care they need and deserve. For some, the reasons may be an extreme dental anxiety. Others may have physical hindrances that prevent them from seeking dental care. Sedation dentistry by Visalia dentist, Dr. Bodensteiner, has been nothing short of a lifesaver for patients who are missing out on much needed dental care for any reason.
In our office, oral conscious sedation dentistry is used by Dr. Bodensteiner and his team in order to relax patients in need. This simple process involves taking prescribed medication before your appointment, so that you’ll be in a calm, comfortable state by the time you reach the dental chair. You’ll be able to converse, and be aware of your surroundings, while remaining anxiety-free during your entire visit. In some cases, patients become so relaxed during their care that they have little to no recollection of the appointment by the time it’s finished.
Sedation dentistry has enhanced dental care for many. Here are some of the reasons you might choose sedation dentistry by our Visalia dentist:
