Imagine the following: You are stretched out in a dental chair at the start of a checkup. As a dental assistant wraps a paper bib around your neck and clicks on a bright overhead light, your tense up and your heart begins to pound. If sounds like you, sedation dentistry from Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL can help.
Millions of people experience heightened stress levels when they go to the dentist. Sometimes it’s so intense, people skip the dentist altogether. This is a coping mechanism that psychologists call “avoidence.” The problem with it, of course, is that it puts your dental health at risk.
We offer oral conscious sedatin. This involves taking a prescribed sedative shortly before your scheduled procedure. It will put you in a deeply relaxed state, but you’ll remain awake (but groggy) and need someone to drive you to and from our office.
