"Dental phobia" is not an uncommon occurrence. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), around 30 percent of the population steer clear of dentistry because of fear and anxiety. This apprehension may cause some to bypass important dental care, which can lead to serious oral health issues.
If you suffer from this "dental phobia," fear no more. Your Bowling Green dentist offers sedation dentistry to ease your anxiety. Hartland Family Dental Care's compassionate and attentive care will allow you to relax in comfort as your dental needs are met.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
IV sedation is a safe, comfortable procedure ideal for patients with moderate to high levels of anxiety, especially with those who have a phobia of dental injections. An anxiety-reducing medication is administered by an intravenous line, placing you into a calm, relaxed state. You will not be asleep, and will still have verbal and physical response capabilities. So while the team at Hartland Family Dental Care provides their exceptional dental treatment, you remain stress-free and have little memory of the procedure.
