If you suffer from anxiety or fear of the dentist, you’re not alone! Dr. McMillan and his team at McMillan & Associates understand that many patients are nervous, in some cases terrified, of visiting their dentists. Some will even avoid the simplest procedures or their necessary hygiene checkups because of their fears. There’s no reason to feel embarrassed; we encounter patients like you on a regular basis.
For our patients who suffer from dental phobia, we are happy to offer oral sedation dentistry to the Fairfax, VA and surrounding areas. Sedation dentistry can be life-changing, because it allows patients, who would otherwise not get the dental care they need, to achieve gorgeous smiles and receive the proper dental treatments they deserve.
Sedation dentistry isn’t only used to calm anxieties and fears. Sedation dentistry has been a lifesaver for anyone who has trouble opening their mouths wide enough for care, or who has a severe gag reflex. It has also helped dentists care for patients with conditions that include neurological troubles, such as Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s Disease. It may be used for patients with complex cases, or who need several dental treatments done in a short amount of time. There are many reasons why you and your dentist may choose sedation dentistry.
If for any reason you avoid receiving the dental treatment you need and deserve, sedation dentistry in our Fairfax, VA area dental clinics may be the best option for you. Call today, and speak with our team about your needs and the possibility of sedation dentistry.
