Did you know as many as one-half of the general population have some hesitation or fear about visiting a dentist? Certainly, every patient has a genuine basis for their concerns. Past negative experiences are often an underlying cause for such feelings which can be hard to overcome. Subsequently, patients may not attend scheduled appointments with their dentist for regular maintenance and care, let alone seek treatment for any dental concerns.
Unfortunately, prolonged periods of time between dentist appointments can allow small problems like cavities and gum disease the chance to get worse, and the progression of these dental problems can also increase the likelihood for discomfort and pain in the future.
The team at Nepean Dental Sedation encourage any person experiencing dental anxiety to discuss their concerns with their treating dentist, as advancements in pain-free dentistry mean that all dental procedures can now be provided under pain-free dental sedation. Your treating dentist can contact us to organise pain-free dental sedation for you.
