Afraid of the Dentist? Don’t Let It Keep You from Care

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

Some people suffer from dental anxiety so severe it keeps them from seeing a general dentist for routine dental care. You may know the cause of your anxiety–such as a bad dental experience as a child. You may know the exact sights or sounds that trigger it. Or you may not know why you have dental anxiety, but you know the result: an inability to make visits with your general dentist, leading to an overall decline in your dental health.

But there’s no reason why you should have to let your dental health decline. You can make your routine visits with a general dentist if you work with a dentist who offers sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is a technique that helps you feel relaxed but awake at the dentist. It is not what might be called sleep dentistry–you never lose consciousness, you just become relaxed and able to sit comfortably in the dentist’s chair.

So if it has been a long time since you’ve been to the general dentist and your anxiety is to blame, talk to Dr. Scott Young in Houston. He offers sedation dentistry to help you relax before your dental appointment so you can get the results you desire. Please contact us today to schedule your consultation.
