Many individuals avoid the dentist each year because of an unexplainable fear of the dentist’s chair. All of the amazing advances in dentistry can’t do a thing for you if you don’t go to the dentist. Many estimate that almost half the population has some kind of dental fear. It can range from being a little uncomfortable to a paralyzing fear preventing them from even entering a dental office. When patients do not maintain their regular dental appointments, they risk leaving major problems unaddressed. Sedation dentistry is one way that Dr. Rhodes at Hunt Valley Dental ensures his patients are comfortable and relaxed. Many of our patients have expressed their thanks to us for providing them with the first “enjoyable” dental visit.
Sedation dentistry helps Dr. Rhodes get his patients to a state in which they are relaxed, anxiety-free, and comfortable so that they can have the work done that they need. Some individuals need sedation for almost every procedure, while others may only require it when they need extensive dental work done. Everyone is different, but it is important to Dr. Rhodes that everyone has a positive experience at the dental office.
