At Bear Creek Family Dental, we know that when patients avoid us, it’s not because they’re unconcerned with their oral health. Life is busy, and if you’re stressing under the weight of other financial obligations, it makes sense that dental appointments can fall lower on your list of priorities.
You may also have deep-seated fears when it comes to dentistry. Whether you’re afraid of the sights and sounds inside of a dental office, you’ve had painful experiences in the past, you’re uncomfortable with the current condition of your mouth, or just prefer not to have your personal space invaded, we get it. We aren’t here to judge or shame you, but to help you improve and maintain the highest level of oral health possible.
A little light sedation may help us achieve this mission.
You may infer this from the name, but it’s the use of a sedative during your dental visit to relax you while you receive the dental treatment you need. Dr. Shull can discuss whether sedation dentistry is right for you based on your level of anxiety, your individual needs and preferences, and your medical history. Dr. Shull takes all these factors into account before recommending or administering any kind of treatment or sedation.
