Studies have recently proven that we can truly “talk away” our fears – including dental fears. And although many people suffer from a fear of visiting the dentist, you can diminish or eliminate this fear through talking.
A study that evaluated 130 men and women, with the median age of 40, participated in therapy led by a psychologist. These individuals all had an intense phobia of dental treatment, from injections to drills; most were unable to bring themselves to the dentist due to their debilitating fears.
However, after the “talk therapy”, 79% were able to visit the dentist without sedation, with 6% needing sedation, and the other 15% still opting out of dental treatments.
Intravenous (I.V.) Sedation Solution for Dental Care
At DentistsRUs, we offer dental professionals who can provide you with Intravenous (I.V.) Sedation – also called Conscious Sedation or “twilight sleep”, allowing you to be relaxed and drowsy during your treatment, but you are in an “altered state” which is usually perceived as quite pleasant.
Local anesthesia is also used, eliminating any discomfort if surgery is required. Though most of the procedure is usually forgotten, you may remember portions of it. There is some variation among individuals.
I.V. Sedation is a very popular option to significantly reduce anxiety, make the time pass quickly, and help forget most of the procedure, all at a very reasonable cost. All services we offer can be done very comfortably under I.V. sedation, and it is available in our sister dental offices at Burnaby Sedation Dental and Langley Sedation Dental.
So if you suffer from dental fears and anxiety and haven’t found that talking away your fears has helped, don’t hesitate to call come by our Burnaby Sedation & General Dentistry or Langley Sedation & General Dentistry office that can provide you with a sedation solution, and ensure your oral care is maintained without interruption.
