Let’s face it, many Americans are apprehensive about going to the dentist. They will wait until they are in pain or discomfort before they will even pick up the phone and make an appointment.
Brandon, MS (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
Dr. Jonathan Germany of Germany Dental recently launched a new website to better educate his patients and future patients on cosmetic and sedation dentistry in Jackson, MS and surrounding areas. Germany Dental’s primary goal with the launch of their new website is to educate.
“Let’s face it, many Americans are apprehensive about going to the dentist. They will wait until they are in pain or discomfort before they will even pick up the phone and make an appointment,” Dr. Germany states. Preventative dentistry with annual exams and X-Rays are of the highest importance to having a healthy mouth at Germany Dental in Brandon, MS. Unfortunately, anxious patients put off going to the dentist for years at a time. “I’ve been a dentist for ten years now, and sadly, I’ve seen many patients who have avoided the dentist for years. The reason for their avoidance, dental fear,” explains Dr. Germany. His new website is focused on delivering patient education on how sedation dentistry can help patients overcome their apprehension and obtain a happy healthy smile in Jackson, MS and surrounding areas.
Sedation dentistry has been around for several years. This is commonly administered in the form of nitrous oxide, laughing gas, or oral conscious sedation, a small pill patients can take to relax. In some patient’s fear extremities, those two options of sedation are not enough. Fortunately, I.V. sedation is offered and typically administered by an anesthesiologist, (CNRA). I.V. sedation is for the most apprehensive patients making them feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental visit and it assists in being able to perform year’s worth of dental neglect. Sedation dentistry is used to perform everything from a filling to a complete smile makeover. Sedation allows dentists to perform year’s worth of dental neglect in as little as a single setting.
A Jackson patient of Dr. Germany’s comments: “I am a baby when it comes to seeing the dentist. I’ve put it off every year until I started getting a bad pain. My wife had me call a dentist in the Jackson area and knowing that I could have sedation dentistry, I had my pain area addressed and even a little more work.” Dr. Germany comments, “Dental phobia should never be the reason for letting your smile go unhealthy. My goal is to help people in my community get their smile back. Hopefully, our new website will do just that.”
