Sedation Dentistry now available in our office!

February 10, 2010

Dr. Leroux and Palm Dental Care is now a certified oral conscious sedation office.
Oral Sedation is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people receiving dental treatment. It enables those who are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.
According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), a professional dental organization dedicated to ensuring that patients receive safe, comfortable and anxiety-free dental care, 30 percent of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. This all-too-common “dental phobia” prevents people from receiving necessary routine dental care, potentially compromising the health and functionality of their mouth and smile. If you, or someone you love, are in this 30%, hopefully we can help.
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Because of this, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.
If you are reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of.
