And we’ll do everything we can to ease you back to the dentist for those essential hygiene appointments so you can reach a better state of health and happiness.

Avoiding The Dentist Is The Real Danger

We understand why people think being at the dentist is scary. Bad memories of painful dental treatments, horror stories other people tell, and even a sensitive gag reflex can make dental care miserable.

But what some don’t realize is that the real danger isn’t going to the dentist.

It’s not going to the dentist.

Here are some of the dental problems you face when you’re not getting the routine cleanings, exams, and other treatments you need for a healthy mouth:

  • Tooth decay
  • Dry mouth
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Weak, damaged teeth
  • Infected teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Jawbone deterioration
  • Tooth loss

On top of all that, you also won’t feel good about your smile. Unhealthy teeth and gums can be just as hard on your overall well being because it will keep you from living fully. You may not feel comfortable or confident enough about your teeth that you avoid socializing or pursuing personal and professionals goals.

In other words, an unhealthy mouth is just as much an emotional problem as it is a physical one.

The Secret To Relaxing Treatment

One of the most effective tools for relieving dental anxiety is inhaled sedation, or laughing gas. It’s safe for all ages, starts working immediately and wears off quickly, and it takes the edge off so you can lay back in the chair and completely relax during your procedure.

Knowing you have that option moving forward can do wonders for your confidence about appointments over time. Many patients even reach a point where they stop relying on sedation because they’ve become so much more comfortable visiting the dentist!
