|The worst thing you can do when it comes to your oral health is to find reasons not to visit our office. Regular checkups and professional cleaning are an essential part of your oral health.
The problem that many people have is that they fear the dentist. It could be the sounds or the way our office looks that they are afraid of. It could be due to some type of trauma they suffered in the past.
Regardless of the reasons a person needs to find a way to overcome their fears and come to our office for a visit. Sedation dentistry may help you accomplish that goal.
What is It?
Sedation dentistry is an option that helps people get over the fear of the dentist. It involves several different aspects for people who need help going to the dentist. It starts before a person gets to our office. Some people may take medication or use relaxation tricks before they leave for our office.
Once in the office, there are other tools to help a person relax. The waiting room, the music and the personnel in the office all help put you at ease. In the actual examination room, this idea of relaxation continues. Before starting any type of examination or treatment, additional sedation medications can help. These range from light sedation to a deep sedation that allows the patient to get whatever treatment they need.
Why Sedation Dentistry Improves Oral Health
Good oral health requires several things. It requires a person to practice good oral hygiene habits. It also requires a person to have regular visits with our dental professionals for examinations and cleanings. If a person is afraid of coming to our office, they may miss out on this important step. They may delay getting any treatment they need to help improve their oral health.

What Our Patients Are Saying About Us
"I recently had to have a tooth extracted and was very nervous. Dr. Choyee and his staff went over and above to make me feel comfortable. It turned out to be an easy procedure and I was done quickly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Choyee for any oral surgery needs you may have. Dr. Choyee even called me that evening to make sure I was doing well and had no problems!"
