Put Your Fears to Rest with Sedation Dentistry

Did you know an estimated 95 million North Americans avoid receiving dental treatment? Their reason: fear or anxiety.

A lot of people would rather suffer from dental problems than go through a complete dental treatment. These people probably had a traumatic experience in the past or they simply fear getting into the dentist’s chair. Unfortunately this fear keeps them away from the dental care they need and deserve.

Do you put off dental care due to fear or anxiety? It’s time to change all that.

At Laurel Lakes Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer sedation dentistry to help anxious or fearful patients like you to feel more relaxed and comfortable during the treatment. You will feel no pain or discomfort as we provide you with the much-needed dental care that you deserve.

Are You a Good Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

If you require extensive dental treatment involving complex procedures or multiple visits, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Through this, you will be able to go through all the procedures without the usual discomfort or pain, leading to a comfortable and positive dental experience.

Sedation dentistry can help you if you:

  • Are afraid or terrified of getting dental treatments
  • Gag easily during the dental procedure
  • Are uncomfortable holding your mouth open
  • Are nervous about the sounds and smells of a dental office
  • Are too busy for multiple dental appointments
  • Have made a habit of avoiding dental care

If you’re interested in discussing your sedation and other dentistry options, we can work out a personalized plan for you. Come to Laurel Lakes Cosmetic Dentistry. With a Spanish speaking dentist in our practice, we serve the communities of College Park, Columbia and nearby areas.

I tried to think of the best way to thank you for my beautiful smile, and there simply isn't any way to express the gratitude I feel. This has changed my life. I have a confidence I never had before, and I no longer feel self-conscious during talks and meetings at work. I am no longer hesitant about smiling at people and everyone smiles back. I get comments all the time on my beautiful smile, and I owe it all to you!
