Dental fear, also known as dental phobia or dental anxiety, is a well-documented problem that affects an estimated 30-40 million individuals in the United States. Children and adults with this issue find going to the dentist challenging. Consequently, they avoid receiving routine cleanings or taking care of problems related to their teeth and gums.
The origins of dental anxiety vary from person to person. Many adults’ dental fear arises from negative childhood experiences related to one or more visits to their dentist. Others simply cannot stay calm or sit for long periods of time, or they may find having equipment in their mouths uncomfortable.
Sedation dentistry enables fearful patients to overcome their struggles by using sedatives and medications to achieve a state of relaxation. One published study on the topic indicated that nearly two-thirds of dental practitioners feel that this problem is a growing concern that needs to be addressed. The White and Haines Advanced Dentistry team offers both oral and local sedation options to provide customized, relaxing care. Sedation techniques can be utilized for everything from six-month cleanings to more extensive treatments like root canals and full mouth reconstructions.
Those with anxiety related to going to the dentist and in need of sedation dentistry in Mooresville, NC and surrounding communities may call Drs. White and Haines without a referral at 704-896-9535 to schedule an initial consultation.
