San Bruno CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Surveys report that over 50% of the population has fear of the dentist to some extent. Dr. Bradley Parker of San Bruno, CA recently introduced sedation dentistry to his practice to provide an anxiety-free option to patients who are hesitant about dental visits.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to still be awake and responsive during their dental procedure, but less aware of pain, noise, and anxiety associated with their visit. This simple solution offered by Bradley L. Parker, D.D.S. is helping patients who have avoided the dentist for years finally get regular dental work that is vital to overall health.
“I usually don’t like going to the dentist—drilling and shots really scare me—but Dr. Parker and his staff really did an amazing job with my sedation,” said Ann Lucas, a patient of Bradley L. Parker, D.D.S. in San Bruno, CA. “I didn’t feel anything during my procedure and didn’t’ even realize that I was getting multiple shots. It made me a lot more comfortable and I actually don’t mind going to the dentist anymore.
The oral conscious sedation administered by Dr. Bradley Parker involves a small pill that is taken prior to a dental visit. The pill causes the patient to become drowsy and relaxed, but still conscious during the appointment; however, they will not remember unpleasant pain, discomfort or drilling noises.
“Patient comfort is the top priority of our practice, and oral conscious sedation is helping us provide more of that for our patients,” said Dr. Bradley Parker. “Our staff has received extensive training in sedation to make sure that the entire process is pleasant and stress-free.”
In addition to oral conscious sedation, Dr. Parker and his staff at the San Bruno Center for Dental Medicine also provide a variety of dental treatments to produce optimal oral health and dental aesthetics. These services include dental implants, Invisalign, periodontal treatments, cosmetic dentistry, treatments for sleep apnea and more.
Bradley L. Parker, D.D.S. completed his dental education at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, graduating in 1982 amongst the top 25 in his class. Dr. Parker is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the California and American Dental Associations and several others. He is a founding member of Dentistry for Diabetics. Dr. Parker has been recognized as one of America’s Top Dentists for the past six years.
