See the Dentist without the Fear

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Many people are afraid of going to the dentist. As a result they put off making that dental appointment and their dental care suffers as a result. However, avoiding preventative and corrective dental care is a proven health risk as well.

Oyster Point Dentistry respects this natural fear that some patients have for dentists and dental care procedures. For those who are afraid of the sounds and sights of dental procedures there is sedation dentistry. Oral sedation “speeds up the process” from a patient’s point of view. Dental treatments that are an hour or longer seem to take only minutes. Dental research has proven that oral sedation is the key to motivating a regular dental health care regiment for the anxiety-prone patient.

Oral sedation dentistry services put aside this anxiety that many people associate with the dentists office.  The oral sedation procedure itself is safe and painless as it does not require the use of needles.
