Fear is a powerful emotion. If you have claustrophobia, you take a pass on cave exploration. If you have a fear of heights, you avoid sky diving. People with dentophobia fear dentists, and avoid dental care at all costs. At Marcos Ortega DDS in Hillcrest San Diego we can help people do something about it.
The problem with avoiding the dentist is that it puts your dental health at risk. Some people avoid the dentist entirely, while others only manage appointments when a condition has gotten so bad, they can’t take it anymore. At that point treatment may, of necessity, be extreme – something that could have been prevented with regular checkups.
If you are coping with dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be just the answer you need. We offer oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a sedative before your scheduled appointment. It puts you in a deeply relaxed state. It’s pretty strong stuff, and you will need a ride to and from our office.
If you or a loved one copes with dental phobia or anxiety, please schedule an appointment with us at name of practice. Our sedation dentistry has helped patients all over Hillcrest, Mission Hills, and Bankers Hill get the dental care they deserve. They come to us for complete cosmetic dentistry services, and all their dental health care needs. Schedule an appointment with us today!
