Although you hate to admit it, it’s been years since you’ve gone in for a routine dental visit. Why? You have dental anxiety, a condition that affects about 1 in 6 Americans. Even though you’d like to take better care of your smile, you start to panic when even picking up the phone to schedule an appointment. Is there any way to address your fears and keep your oral health intact? By working with the team at Dallas Center for Oral Health & Wellness, your premier sedation dentist in Dallas, you can get the relaxing, compassionate care you need.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a safe, effective way to treat dental anxiety and dental phobias. Dr. Anna Willison and her compassionate staff understand that there are many patients who are so scared to see the dentist that their teeth become compromised – leading to the need for complex dental procedures.
Sedation dentistry is also an optimal method when treating patients with special needs who may not understand how to sit still while undergoing dental care. As a member of the Special Care Dentistry Association, Dr. Willison has the expertise – and passion – for caring for patients with developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders, and those who are medically compromised. With years of experience, she’s your choice for a special needs dentist in Dallas.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Absolutely. Under the care of a trained professional, sedation dentistry is both safe and effective. Dr. Willison has advanced medical education in the most innovative relaxation techniques and we prioritize patient care above all else.
What Sedation Methods Do You Provide?
We offer the following sedation methods to ensure our patients have the safe, relaxing experience they deserve:
- IV Sedation – With this treatment, we give sedative medications to our patients intravenously. You’ll be in a “twilight” state, and you most likely won’t remember your dental treatment because you’ll be so relaxed. You’ll still be able to respond to commands from Dr. Willison, like when she asks you to open wide or turn your head.
- In-Hospital General Sedation – This is an excellent option for our special needs patients. As a member of Medical City Hospital, Dr. Willison is able to provide the highest quality sedation dentistry to our patients who have extra considerations to take into account.
Now that you know how sedation dentistry can address your anxieties and assist patients with special needs, schedule your appointment with Dallas Center for Oral Health & Wellness today!
