IV Sedation At Your Dentist In Orillia – What Should You Expect?

Are you afraid of the dentist? If so, you’re like millions of other people. Like you, they really do want a healthy, beautiful smile and know it can be achieved if only fear wasn’t in the way.

We understand. Dental phobia affects 9-20% of us. It’s pretty common, so if you suffer, you’re definitely not alone.

In this article, we’ll talk about one of the most popular ways to get the dental care you need and want even if you have the worst dental phobia – IV sedation. But before we discuss the solution that may be perfect for you, let’s talk a little about dental phobia itself.

Dental phobia causes:

  • avoidance behavior – avoiding booking your next appointment when leaving one appointment, cancelling your appointment at the last minute
  • severe dental issues that could have been intercepted earlier – when you leave a small dental issue unaddressed (you may not even know it’s there!), it will grow into a bigger issue, making getting dental care more elusive
  • investment of more time and expense–there is a logical relationship … small issues usually require less time and expense to correct and larger issues usually take more time and expense to correct.
  • financial restrictions – if you ever find yourself not keeping dental appointments due to financial restrictions, talk to us so that we may find a payment plan option that works for you.
