Fear is a powerful thing. If you have claustrophobia, you take a pass on cave exploration. If you have a fear of heights, you avoid sky diving. People with dental phobia fear dentists, and avoid dental care at all costs. At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham, we can help with sedation dentistry.
The problem with avoiding the dentist is that people put their dental health at risk
If you or someone you love cope with dental phobia, sedation dentistry may be just the answer you need. We offer two types:
- Nitrous oxide. Popularly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide puts you in a very relaxed state. It is safe and effective, works quickly, and wears off quickly. It’s been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
- Oral conscious sedation involves taking a sedative before your scheduled appointment. It puts you in a deeply relaxed state. You will need a ride to and from our office.
Don’t skip the dentist becuase of dental phobia or anxiety. With sedation dentistry from Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham you can get the dental care you deserve. Schedule a smile analysis with us today!
