Question: Doc, a lot of people are afraid of going to the dentist. I happen to be one of them. Why shouldn’t I be afraid?
Answer: I can understand the fear and the apprehension and the possibility of discomfort when going to the dentist. However, today’s technologies and the services that we offer at Island Dental Associates can eliminate that fear.
There’s no reason to fear what we do. First of all, we use top of the line anesthetics which will numb the gum before we even proceed with any type of treatment. We also offer sedation dentistry which is one of the most common ways of removing the anxiety out of going to the dentist.
With sedation the patient will come in and have their treatment, however, they won’t remember a thing about the services that were rendered and they certainly won’t experience any discomfort. They’ll have all the treatment most likely completed in one day so there’s no need to return for follow up care because all the treatment can be completed in one day, which makes it a lot easier for the patient and therefore they can have everything done that they’ve been wanting to have done without having the fear of multiple visits that accompany in order to complete the treatment.
Sedation dentistry is completely safe, it’s applicable to most patients. If you have any questions about being sedated for your dental treatment then give us a call at (516) 565-6565.
