For millions of people, the mere thought of going to the dentist sends their anxiety level through the roof. This emotion can range from anxiety to outright phobia, and can be so intense that some people avoid the dentist entirely. At Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego, we can help with sedation dentistry.
To be blunt, skipping the dentist due to fear is a bad idea. If you don’t see the dentist for regular checkups, you are putting your dental health at risk. Healthy teeth and gums are important at every stage of life, and study after study has shown the link between your dental health and your overall health.
There are a lot of reasons people stress out just thinking about the dentist. For some, it may stem from a prior bad experience. Fear of pain may be involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.
Whatever the reason, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get the treatment they deserve.
We offer oral conscious sedation. You take a prescribed sedative an hour or so before your appointment. It won’t make you sleep, but you’ll be in a deeply relaxed state. When the appointment is over someone will have to drive you home.
At Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego, we want our patients to have a positive experience. If you cope with anxiety or phobia, ask about sedation dentistry. It’s helped people from Hillcrest, Mission Hills, and Bankers Hill, who come to us for comprehensive general dentistry and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
