Understanding Dental Phobia and Anxiety

Why do so many people have a fear of having dental work done? Unfortunately, many people have experienced dental trauma, and while this was surely unintentional on the part of the dentist, they have retained a memory of this traumatic experience that included pain and anxiety. 

In the past, terms such as “deep cleaning” and “root canal” sounded scary, and people associated those terms with excessive pain. The fact is that these procedures are virtually pain-free because of advances in dentistry.

In some cases, people simply need more information to be assured that their procedure will be comfortable. The key to minimizing dental anxiety is to ensure the patient is informed of what their procedures entail and the use of oral conscious sedation if they need help relaxing. 

The Benefits of Conscious Sedation

When having a dental procedure, patients may be offered a solution such as oral conscious sedation to help them relax.

Oral conscious sedation comes in the form of a pill that the dentist will prescribe. You’ll take this pill shortly before your appointment. Conscious sedation may be an option for you if:

  • You have an overactive gag reflex.
  • You are having multiple procedures performed in one visit.
  • You have dental anxiety or fears. 

Conscious sedation can be done for complex dental surgeries or even routine dental cleanings if a patient’s anxiety is extreme.
