Does Going to the Dentist Hurt?
- Posted on: Mar 28 2014
Visiting Dr. Fleschler for regularly scheduled cleanings should not be an unpleasant experience. For most people, these and other general dentistry services do not result in pain and can actually be incredibly rewarding. However, if you are suffering from tooth sensitivity or dental phobia, the thought of pain can be enough to keep you from getting the important dental treatments necessary to maintain optimal levels of oral health.
Dr. Fleschler offers patients the option of sedation dentistry. This option is particularly useful for people who suffer from dental phobia, but can also be a blessing for those who suffer from issues such as:
- Difficulties responding to anesthetic
- An overactive gag reflex
- A dislike of needles
- A fear of dental instruments
- Highly sensitive teeth or gums
If you suffer from any of these problems, Dr. Fleschler can discuss your sedation dentistry options to help you determine which one will work best for you, allowing you access to the comprehensive dentistry services you need. There is no reason your dental treatments should ever be painful with sedation dentistry.
