If you are afraid of the dentist, you are not alone. Millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety. At Decatur Smiles, we do our best to calm fears, provide a comfortable dental environment, and earn lifelong patients.
1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial examination and outline any recommended treatment. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control. This allows our dentistry patients to make educated decisions about their oral health and necessary dental care.
2) We practice gentle, pain-free dentistry. Dental treatment will not begin until you are numb.
In some cases, the best way to go is sedation. We offer oral conscious sedation, which involves taking a sedative an hour or so before your appointment. This puts you in a deep state of relaxation, and for most patients it’s enough to get them through the procedure. You will, however, need a ride to and from our office.
At Decatur Smiles, we understand dental anxiety and can help you overcome it with sedation dentistry. Don’t let it prevent you from getting the dental health care you deserve. Other services include general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
