What You Can Do Thanks To Dental Sedation [BLOG]

Peacefully Napping Young Woman | Sedation Dentistry | Alluring Smiles in Mesa, AZ - Dr. Javier Portocarrero

You have a wonderful opportunity this summer to get past your dental anxiety and get back on the road to better oral health and a prettier smile.

That’s because you have our team at Alluring Smiles and our options in sedation dentistry here in Mesa, AZ!

Find The Source Of Your Dental Fear

Wanting to avoid dental appointments and actually avoiding them are too different things.

You may not necessarily look forward to going to the dentist, but you go because you know you should.

If your fear of the dentist office is enough to keep you from going on a routine basis, that’s when it becomes a problem.

So what’s the source of this fear? It’s different for everyone, but some common sources are:

*You had a terrible dentist appointment as a kid that still bothers you.

*You’re afraid of the sounds, smells, and pain associated with the dentist and treatment.

*The stories you hear from others make you fear the worst about your own appointments.

Understanding why you feel the way you do about dental care is a big part of overcoming your anxiety. Another part is accepting the help of dental sedation!

You can choose between inhaled, oral, and IV sedation with Dr. Portocarrero at Alluring Smiles, all of which are highly effective in soothing you out of that state of panic you’re probably used to by now.

What You Can Do Thanks To Dental Sedation

In addition to easing your mind and making you feel relaxed and comfortable, you do other things thanks to dental sedation that you probably didn’t expect!

*Avoid Costly Dental Treatments Later*

The first step in restoring your dental health is often the first of many. That’s because staying away from the dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams can lead to multiple oral health problems.

The good thing about sedation is it makes it possible for you to take giant steps in restorative treatment at a time! Under sedation, Dr. Portocarrero can perform two or more procedures in a single visit so your time and money spent is minimized.

*Let Go Of Tension & Sensitivity*

When your mind is tense, your body is tense.

Because of that, pain and sensitivities can become more intense. Sedation, on the other hand, allows you to melt into the dental chair as your body becomes more and more relaxed. This makes it easier for you to avoid pain and gag reflex sensitivities while the hygienist and dentist are working on your teeth.

*Gain Courage & Control With Your Dental Care*

Restoring your oral health is easy with sedation dentistry. You’ll feel calm and relaxed so you can undergo dental treatment without fear and stress.

But our hope goes even further than that.

Our goal is to help you gain courage with each appointment. The more you experience positive visits, you’ll start to feel more confident about dental care overall.

Eventually, you can find yourself in control of your oral health and confident about going to the dentist to the point that you don’t even need to rely on sedation at all.

Make An Appointment

Many patients feel hopeless when they’re faced with multiple dental problems. Not just that, but knowing the very thing that led to those problems is what makes it seemingly impossible to fix them! It’s truly overwhelming.

But now that you know about sedation dentistry at Alluring Smiles, you know that help is available and better oral health is possible.
