Sedation Dentistry: Your Solution to Dental Anxiety

Sedation Dentistry: Your Solution to Dental Anxiety

A great majority of people experience dental anxiety. According to estimates, more than 10% of adults in Edina, Minnesota, avoid visiting the dentist because of their intense dental phobia.


Many factors contribute to people's fear of dentists, including the following:

- Embarrassment

- Fear of pain

- Feeling helpless

- Poor gag reflex

- Negative experiences


It is now simpler than ever to manage your dental anxiety during procedures like dental implants and cosmetic dentistry, thanks to developments in sedation dentistry. Additionally, there are other sedative techniques that can be used, and doing so benefits patients regardless of the type of anxiety they are experiencing. Additionally, sedation aids in the patient's relaxation and lets the doctor treat you more effectively.
