Dental anxiety fades away with an oral sedative in Mesa, AZ

Oral Sedatives from Dr. Edward Fritz, New Health Dental

Patients experience dental anxiety for a range of reasons. It can stem from an unpleasant experience, fear of pain, or even a strong gag reflex. Patients who experience dental anxiety often put their oral health at risk due to lack of proper treatment. Using oral sedatives, practices like New Health dental can offer patients in Mesa, AZ restored oral health and the ability to be comfortable at the dentist’s office.
At New Health dental, we offer oral sedatives, which is a type of medication that is taken at a at home, prior to the patient coming in for an appointment. Because the medicine is taken at home, patients are required to arrange transportation to and from the office. By the time patients arrive for treatment, the medication will have already begun to work. Oral sedatives allow the patient to remain conscious for the procedure. Patients can walk, use the bathroom, and respond to simple instructions. After treatment, most patients have little to no recollection of the procedure.
Oral sedation is an excellent option for patients who may be facing long hours in the dentist’s chair. It is a great option for patients receiving both restorative and cosmetic services such as smile makeovers, dental implants, and oral surgery.
At New Health dental, we understand that patients who have dental anxiety are less likely to visit the dentist for regular cleanings or if they suspect there is an issue. We want to change the stigma of the dentist office being an unpleasant environment. With oral sedatives, we can help patients who have gone years without proper dental care.
