Modern dentistry has become much more comfortable with improvements in technology, techniques, and materials. However, there are still patients who avoid the dentist due to fear and anxiety. Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for these fearful patients, as sedation dentistry allows for a pain-free and anxiety-free dental appointment.
Dubuque Dentist- Sedation Dentistry
Exceptional Dentistry has been offering sedation dentistry for several years. Sedation dentistry provides relief to people who have been avoiding the dentist for years– even decades– out of fear and anxiety.
Sedation dentistry is proving to be a smile-saver for millions of Americans.
In our Dubuque dental office, Dr. Ted Murray and Dr. Kristen Berning and the Exceptional Dentistry team offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This is a great option for patients with dental anxiety, a strong gag reflex, and for young children having dental work for the first time. Almost anyone who wants to relax more during his or her appointment can use nitrous oxide or laughing gas for anxiety relief.
The real solution to a patient’s fears, phobias and anxieties was all in one little pill. Today was an amazing day for a Dubuque man, and for Dr. Ted Murray and Amy. After years of thinking about it, the patient called our office. He had fears, anxieties and phobias about a dentist looking at his mouth. Kori invited him to come for a ten minute appointment to meet our dentist and to talk about his fears. We often hear about someone being worried, frightened and not wanting to have someone look at their mouth.
