Anxiety. Worry. Stress. That sensation in the pit of your stomach. Whatever you prefer to call it, you know the feeling. It’s the sense of apprehension that arrives when you realize it’s time to visit a dentist. Thankfully, sedation dentistry gives you the perfect exit strategy for dental anxiety. Just take a little bit of sedative medicine, sit back, relax … and forget about it. Literally. We’ll do the rest. A relatively unknown benefit of sedation is short-term amnesia, meaning that many of our Visalia and Tulare dental patients can’t recall their procedure. It’s the ultimate dental “Fughettaboutit!” After experiencing the results for themselves, I have yet to witness a single dental patient turn it down. If you haven’t tried sedation yet, I can’t encourage you enough to give it a go.
