Dental anxiety can keep you from getting the dental care you need. The mere thought of seeing the dentist can produce fear, stress, and tension, causing you to stay far from the dental chair. Lack of routine checkups and treatments can result in poor oral health.
At the office of Mark H. Wright DDS in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we offer a solution to dental anxiety and fear through conscious sedation dentistry.
It’s not uncommon to be nervous before a dental appointment, especially if you’re scheduled for oral surgery or other complex treatments. Dental anxiety, however, goes way beyond nervousness and can cause you to avoid the dentist for years. Sedation dentistry uses relaxing medication to alleviate your fear and make it easier to receive dental care. Stress-free dental visits are possible through sedation dentistry.
Dr. Mark Wright offers oral sedation as a dental anxiety treatment option to help you have stress-free dental visits. With oral conscious sedation, Dr. Wright will prescribe a pill, a mild sedative to be taken about an hour before your appointment. This medication will decrease your anxiety and fear and help you relax by making you calm and drowsy during your procedure. As the effects linger, you’ll need a driver to take you to and from your appointment.
Sedation dentistry can help eliminate stress and improve your oral health – a win-win all the way around. To learn more about our conscious sedation dentistry services, contact the team at Mark H. Wright DDS for a consultation with Dr. Mark Wright at 930 North Cedar Street in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at (719) 624-4122. Our practice is open to new and established patients.
