Schedule Sleep Dentistry After Your Accident for a Better Experience
In our dental office, we offer sleep dentistry for patients that are experiencing anxiety from visiting the dentist. We have found that many adults have fears or anxiety about receiving dental care. Much of this is caused by a poor childhood experience or the noise, heat and vibration that can be caused by the dental drill. This can be exasperated after an accident because the injury in and of itself is traumatic. Those in a car wreck, for example, are already going to be upset and adding significant dental work to the equation can only result in undue stress.
Fortunately, we offer a better solution – sleep dentistry. Patients of our dental office can sit back, relax and even fall asleep while their dental work is being completed. This makes it possible to relax and to remain anxiety free. Given the nature of accidents, we are incredibly cautious to ensure that our patients do not feel any undue stress while we are working on restoring their damaged teeth. If you think that you will never need these services, it is important to know the facts.
