Overcoming Dental Fear Is Possible
Fear, anxiety and even embarrassment keep quite a large number of people out of the dental chair each year, leading to greater oral health problems and more expensive future treatment. Let us help you overcome these obstacles with comfortable, pain-free dental visits. No matter your source or level of fear, anxiety or embarrassment, Dr. Richard Featherstone has the perfect sedation dentistry solution for the stress-free care your smile needs.
Have You Been Putting Off Much Needed Treatment?
Get back on track and actually enjoy your dental visits with calming sedation solutions from Dr. Featherstone. From nitrous oxide and local anesthetic to deeper relaxation with oral sedation, you can receive the simple or complex care you need, even if it has been years since your last visit. Dr. Featherstone will prescribe the most appropriate level of sedation based on your particular needs and concerns.
With Oral Sedation, Fear Is a Thing of the Past
For more moderate levels of dental fear or anxiety, Dr. Featherstone often recommends oral sedation. Taking a prescription anti-anxiety mediation prior to your visit renders you calm, relaxed and ready to receive treatment. Many people opting for oral sedation remember little to nothing of their procedure, making this method ideal for those fearful due to past traumatic dental experiences, general aversion to the dental environment or embarrassment over the state of their oral health.
Oral sedation is commonly used for procedures such as:
- Full Mouth Reconstruction
- Dental Implants
- General Tooth Extractions
- Wisdom Teeth Extractions
