Afraid of the dentist?
Valley Springs Dental is the premier Sedation Dental Clinic

30 percent of the population avoids the dentist because of fear. Some had traumatic experiences as children. Others suffered pain as adults. Still more were swayed by stereotypes in movies or parental horror stories. No matter the reason, far too many of these individuals simply stopped seeking routine dental care because they were frightened. This not only puts their oral health in jeopardy but also adversely affects their overall health and well-being.

So is there a way to help such individuals overcome their dental fears?
Yes!! The answer is Sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is used to provide a comfortable, relaxing and anxiety-free Experience for certain patients receiving dental treatment by using a triturated dose of small sedative pills. Thus enabling individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia. Oral sedation dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States and Canada to quell patient fears. The technique is easy and requires no needles. Best of all, the medications create such a comfortable experience that most patients do not remember the visit; it is as if they slept through the treatment. In reality, oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of Consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation.
